For Mr Spencer Antle,
It’s rare that I feel so inspired by a brand that I seek out the creator directly. My recent experience with Island Company here in Edgartown, MA was breathtaking, and I’m not being dramatic. I’ve summered on Martha’s Vineyard with my in-laws for years, and I’ve never enjoyed shopping downtown. The area doesn’t cater to our style - the redundancy and predictability of stores is tiring. But, stepping into your store was absolutely escapist - to the core. The personality of your shop, the demeanor of your staff and the evident philosophy of your brand’s approach was refreshing and deeply magnetic.
My husband and I are Massachusetts natives, with an insatiable urge for island adventure. You’ve brilliantly captured so much of what we enjoy, from the prints you create, to the books you lay on the shelves.
As a market research professional, I swim in brands, and pay close attention to how companies speak to their clientele, and how they listen. professionally, I’m intrigued by your philosophy and wildly impressed with your creative implementation. personally, I’m just thrilled to have found you.
