so much good!

We’ve been missing-in-action on the blog scene since last August (almost a year now). This year has been a whirlwind with so many *good* changes and we are so excited for the year ahead.

Here are some highlights…

This year we published our very first peper & parlor lookbook – it was so much fun! Be sure to keep your eye out for our next big project.

Late last summer we went on our first ever “team-building” retreat to Puerto Rico! We had such an amazing time at the Caribe Hilton, strolling down the streets of Old San Juan, and checking out the local scene at Piñones beach. Anne a.k.a. “big sexy” even got a free surf lesson, haaa! We also had a chance to meet some of Yomaira’s family in the mountains of Caguas, P.R. We can’t wait for the next trip.

We’ve also welcomed some really awesome new lines by independent designers. You’ll see dedicated blog posts to those in the future. One of the sneaky best-selling line is Upper Metal Class – handmade minimalist jewelry on the west coast by artist T. Screen shot 2014-06-22 at 1.35.43 PMWe also have a new staff member in the ranks! The peper and parlor newbie is Ashley. After a few post-grad years on the island of St. John she’s back on the continental U.S. and honing her retail and event planning skills. You’ll see her at the shop on weekends and some weekdays.Screen shot 2014-06-22 at 1.50.30 PM

Our e-commerce site peperandparlor.com is chock-full of the best pieces in the shop. Our former staffer-turned-photo editor at Conde Nast, Brenda continues to blow us away with her photography and endless creativity.
