Delight in artful giving

How we got our start.
As a young engineer in San Diego, California, I started making jewelry for fun in the evenings and selling it at our local craft markets on weekends. I cultivated a great local fan base. It wasn't long before I started wholesaling to hundreds of boutiques all over the country & internationally.

What makes our products unique.
It's all about the woman who will be receiving this sentimental piece of jewelry. Words have a great power and every gift has a story behind it or an important milestone she will always remember when she wears the necklace. The gift giver also feels proud to present a high quality, personable gift.

Why we love what we do.
I am so moved when I read the messages I get from gift givers and recipients. They share the most intimate stories behind the piece and recount the joy on the recipient's face when she unboxed her gift and discovered the perfect sentiment and the symbolic necklace. I know what I do touches people.

Curated collection of classic but on-trend

How we got our start
In 2012, I was a NY-based TV producer and mom to two kids. There was a void in the market between affordable big box retailers and luxury boutiques, and I struggled to find unique, stylish items that didn't break the bank. I made a 180-degree career change and started Humble Chic to fill that need.

What makes our products unique
Humble Chic offers a curated collection of classic but on-trend items that deliver quality as well as extreme value. We called our earliest customers "recessionistas" but the philosophy still holds even in better economic times! We've been featured in Vogue, People Stylewatch, Us Weekly, and more.

Why we love what we do
Humble Chic is based in NYC and run by a small team of creative, dedicated, and inspiring women. We work extremely hard but we also get to play with pretty things all day long. Making our customers happy is what motivates us, and nothing makes our day more than hearing their positive feedback.

Mystery, Romance, and Urban Fantasy

How I got my start.
Widowed in my forties, I realized it was time to pursue my dream of becoming an author. Then I decided to take control of my own career and indie published on Amazon’s KDP in 2011. I’ve sold nearly three million books and haven’t looked back!

What makes my products unique.
Most of my books have a blend of humor mixed in with serious issues and well-developed secondary characters. Some of my series are more humorous. Some are more intense. Some are full of family drama but all feature characters readers become invested in.

Why I love what I do.
First and foremost, I’m a storyteller. I create elaborate worlds for my characters. Being a hybrid author (both indie and traditionally published) is challenging, but I love it. I’ve never worked so hard in my life, but I’ve never loved what I do so much.

When Socks have Ears and Hilarious Faces

How we got our start.
Moosh Walks were created for self-expression, individuality and creativity. I didn’t want to create another colorful pattern sock, I wanted Moosh Walks to feel alive and give your feet personality.

What makes our products unique.
3D elements make our socks animated, it’s almost like your feet have a buddy with them at all times. We also added non-skid bottoms so you can stand strong on the hardwood floors. We are not just Socks, our socks are character driven and each of them have a name, zodiac sign and a super power.

Why I love what I do.
Seeing young girls commend attention when they simply walk into the room, makes us smile. We love when our customers make new friends by just wearing our product. It’s hard to be ignored when your socks have ears and hilarious faces. We believe in individuality and Moosh Walks brand offers that to our customers.

R.S. Grey

Best-Selling Romantic Comedy Author

How I got my start.
I started writing at night after work–the author equivalent of an aspiring actress waiting tables between auditions. It was an addicting hobby at first, but I took it seriously and tried to learn everything I could. One book turned into two, three, four, all while I found and developed my voice.

What makes my products unique.
I want my readers to laugh from start to finish, so my romantic comedies are heavy on the humor. They’re filled with witty banter and characters you can’t help but love.

Why I love what I do.
Because my books are available worldwide, readers have reached out to me from across the globe. There's a connection there, sometimes based on nothing more than one sentence from my book, but it's enough. We can relate to one another regardless of location.

Celebrated, Independently Published Children’s Author

How I got my start.
I’ve always loved to read and write. I honestly can’t remember a time when I wasn’t doing either one of those two things. I wrote my first book in elementary school and from that moment, I knew this was what I was destined to do.

What makes my products unique.
I rarely saw books with characters that looked like me when I was a kid. Realizing it was still true as an adult, I knew something had to be done. My products uniquely feature the stories and likeness of little brown girls and boys, a demographic largely ignored in the world of children’s books.

Why I love what I do.
“Mommy, that little girl looks like me!” I’ll never get tired of hearing those seven words. It means everything to me when little black and brown children see their beauty, brilliance, and joy celebrated in a book for the first time. That experience is at the center of my work and why I love to do what I do.
