Meet The Moms Behind Guesthouse

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.
