Tide and Isle Co - Reed Diffuser

Freeport, Maine

How did your business get started?

I absolutely love scents and scented products, and found out a few years ago that I had reactions to many products I was purchasing. I couldn't find anything that wasn't too strong, too expensive, too wasteful or matched my decor. I have a background in chemistry, and one day my husband told me to try making something myself. The rest is history!

Featured Product: Reed Diffuser

Fill your space with your favorite fragrance, without the worry of having to monitor it. Each Diffuser comes with approximately 4oz of fragrance in a clear glass jar and bundle of 10 responsibly harvested rattan reeds. Jar measures 3” tall and reeds measure 7”. It lasts approximately 6 months.

The vegan coconut-infused reed diffuser base was designed to give optimal fragrance throw and formulated with no phthalates or parabens. The Reed Diffuser comes in Salt Air, Coastal, Driftwood, Coastal Pine, Sea Breeze, Beach Rose, Autumn Orchard, Mulled Cider, Orange Peel + Clove, and Fireside!

Where do I draw inspiration from?

I draw all of my inspiration for my business from the New England coast and everything coastal, from candle scents to trying my best to minimize plastics and multipurpose vessels to lessen our impacts on the oceans and environment.

Cape Cod Insta - Clothing & Gifts

Cape Cod, Massachusetts

How did your business get started?

We started as an Instagram account featuring photos of Cape Cod and expanded into a clothing brand.

Our shop has grown to offer the largest selection of apparel and gifts for Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

Featured Product: Sweatshirts

Our comfy sweatshirts and hoodies are available in several styles and colors for Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

Cake Jars: $12 each for 8 oz jar

The Whisk - Cake Jars

Chestnut Hill, MA

How did your business get started?

My love for baking started very early and I baked as a hobby. A hobby turned into profession, and my love for flavors and textures were honed to perfection during my journey through Le Cordon bleu,Boston in 2013. Soon after, with the love, support and encouragement from family and friends I started Whisk in 2016. At whisk, I bring to you desserts that tell stories of the season, that fuse flavors of the east and west, and that marry sweet with salt, and tart and more!

Featured Product: Cake Jars

Cake jars are a creative way to serve individual cakes, as simple as layering colorful cake and frosting in a glass jar for one cute and delicious dessert.

They are versatile for any occasion and a perfect hostess gift too!

I also specialize in Indian fusion flavors which are a niche for Boston market.

Reindeer Buddy: $38

Click + Stitch Embroidery - Reindeer Buddy

Quincy, Massachusetts

How did your business get started?

I've transformed a small space into a bustling embroidery studio where I turn ordinary items into customized keepsakes with logos, names and monograms. I started Click + Stitch Embroidery on a whim about three years ago, and has turned it into the go-to shop for anyone looking to make a gift extra special.

Featured Product: Reindeer Buddy

This adorable reindeer (aka Rudolph) makes the perfect plush gift for little ones to cuddle. It measures approximately 16". A hidden zipper encloses 2 stuffing pillows which are removable to make washing easier.
