Two local creatives teamed up to open a gift shop experience unlike any other. Read on to catch the buzz about this blossoming business and learn about their upcoming grand opening.
When it comes to gift giving, Honey Collective is the newest place to go. “Honey Collective is a one-stop-shop for modern, local gifting and decor,” explains Co-Founder Morgan Merk of Honeybee Creative. “Our products are thoughtfully chosen, and curated with love.”
Merk co-owns the Newton-based shop alongside Chelsea Mead of Honey Designs Jewelry and together they offer an interactive shopping experience for each customer that walks through the door.
“Clients can find quality choices from building your dream ring, assembling the perfect bouquet at our bloom bar, to personalizing a sweet note at our custom greeting card bar,” says Merk. “For any items not created with our own hands, we source as many as possible from women-owned businesses.”
The inspiration for such a shop came after the duo met at a wedding-styled photo shoot. Soon after, they became fast friends and decided to open a space where they could spread joy and love through intentional gifting for the relationships that mean the most.
“We enjoy spreading thoughtful gifting in our community, and creating and building relationships with those both in and out of our industry,” adds Merk.
Local wedding vendors will be at Honey Collective for a soft opening on Thursday, September 10. The Grand Opening of the store, and the first time they will open their doors to the public, will be on Friday, September 11, and Saturday, September 12.
