Our History

We started our foray in retail in November 2009 when we purchased Coconut Creek Gift Shop from its original location in Halifax. Luckily for us the former owners coached us through the first few years, and then one of the original owners, Linda, continued working for us for several more years! People smiled when they heard the shop was owned by two Tammy's, but that smile often turned into a grin when they found out we were also step-mother/step-daughter! When people called and asked for Tammy the response was always “you want "big Tam" or "little Tammy”!

The story continues...

In 2018 the evolution of the store continued when “little Tammy” took full ownership, with “big Tam” still involved but at a reduced role. In the spring of 2021 we moved the store just to the right of our old location in Dartmouth Crossing to make room for L.L. Bean and were able to do a redesign with more space, adding more product lines as we continue to grow.
