This holiday season, I can’t help but feel so thankful for the support and friendship you’ve shown us this last year. You, our customers, are what drive me to make Prism a special and inspiring place to shop. Our relationship with you gives us meaning and the sense of community you’ve been created around the store is completely irreplaceable.
It’s not an easy time for small businesses, especially with the continual emergence of large online retailers who offer things us small businesses can’t compete with. But, what we can give that they can’t is an intimate, meaningful, and curated experience you’ll remember. I work hard to find new, independent brands and upcoming artists to fill our shelves with one-of-a-kind homemade goods you’ll cherish. When you shop with us, you’re not only making my dream a reality, but supporting twelve awesome employees and many independent freelancers.
2018 was a big, exciting year for us! We continued to drive our social and web content and turned out some of our most inspiring work yet, including lookbooks I’m so proud of. I love collaborating with local artists and had the pleasure of working with Codie O’Connor and our girls LOREM to create gorgeous new window displays for our stores. We love parties and hosted events of all types - at least once a month - from intimate sound baths and new moon ceremonies, to dried floral workshops and vintage fairs. We also had the opportunity to host a two month long OC Prism Pop-up with Amuse Society which led to our biggest news yet - our brand new store.
This August, we opened our second location at the LAB Anti-Mall in Costa Mesa. The store turned out beautifully and is filled with so many hand-touched details from talented artists I love. It’s truly a special space I couldn’t be more excited about. It’s incredible to see how much our little business has grown, even when others are closing. We are so grateful for what this last year has given us and can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you do to support this dream. I wish you and yours the happiest of holidays.
