I recently had the pleasure of meeting the lovely moms behind Guesthouse Hingham. The Guesthouse is downtown Hingham and is a unique (and brilliant) idea where locals can reach and experience brands that we otherwise don’t have around town. I’m excited to share with you a bit more about the ladies behind this space.

◇ Tell us how you two met and how Guesthouse came to be.
We met through mutual friends when we our oldest kids were little.
The Guesthouse came out of a few walks/ talks and both of us wanting to work for ourselves. Heather has a friend in NYC that owns The Drawing Room. We knew this new retail model could work we just needed to tweak it for suburban life.
