Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Founders of Covet, Hafsa and Co. and Fair Folk pick their FN faves.

One of the best parts of being a small business is the network (aka support group) you form with other small biz owners. Since founding For Now, our tribe has expanded beyond comprehension - it's true, your vibe attracts your tribe. For our newest collection we wanted to highlight some of our favorite neighboring small businesses from ACK and Boston and their fave For Now finds. 
**We hold special place in our hearts for founders who run business on islands; if you've never opened a business on an island, well, it's like starting a business, but on an island (aka it takes quadruple the amount of resources) ... but the people, my goodness, the people make it all worth it. So, s/o to those crazy enough to be island entrepreneurs (we love you). 

Hafsa Lewis of Hafsa and Co.

Flower whisperer, and Nantucket local, Hafsa is a true ray of sunshine. She founded Hafsa and Co. to help businesses stand out with her gorgeous floral arrangements (like, seriously GORGEOUS). She's also the brain behind the massive floral wreaths on Brant Point Lighthouse that greet you upon arrival to Nantucket. If you haven't checked out her creations yet, what are you waiting for? 

Hanadi Hamzeh of Covet
Laboratory scientist turned consignment retail guru, Hanadi is the founder of Covet. With locations in Southie, Beacon Hill, and now Nantucket, Hanadi has mastered the consignment game. Covet offers shoppers the opportunity to enjoy "the thrill of the hunt" for on-trend pieces from your favorite designers at affordable prices. 

Kevin Cimo of Fair Folk
Ok, ok, yes Kevin is our co-founder Kaity's husband but he was a good fit for this feature because 1. he was available (forced?) to model and 2. we're continuously impressed by the business he and his partner Jon have built. We may be a bit biased, but we think Fair Folk is one of the best creative agencies out there. They've worked with, and helped build, brands like Trillium, Hydrow, Athletic Brewing, and Lume to name a few.
