the hōm market turns 1 + a year in review

hōm turns 1 on July 17th and holy crap, what a year it has been! Reflecting on everything that has happened during this trip around the sun, we all deserve a big hug and a stiff drink.

I started dreaming about opening a store while at home with my infant (who never slept) and 2 year old toddler during the peak of the pandemic. Always wanting to own a store in the town that I live, needing to get out of the house, speak to other adults, and be creative became a top priority for me. I shot up in bed one morning, told my husband my idea and fast-forward a week, we are liquidating our savings account (thank you Peter), re-mortgaging our home, borrowing from family (thank you mom!) and here we are.

We've remodeled, the shelves are stocked, artisans are lining up, and we just won Best of Westchester New Home Decor Store.

There have been challenges and changes over the course of this year of growth for us. On this quest to find joy and figure out how to make profit we've tried many different things—interior design, showroom collaborations, classes, and partnerships.

The main concept of the store has stayed the same—selling unique handmade artisan goods and scouring the globe for vintage finds is what truly brings me joy. I feel more dialed-in than ever and excited of what this store has become.

Thank you for your support, purchases, class attendance, words of encouragements, reviews, feedback, and for taking the time to read this newsletter. We wouldn't be here without you and I am overwhelmed with gratitude.


We cannot wait to bring you more beauty for years to come.

Love, Britt
