We are Kay Schiller and Meredith Hyde Wells, a mother/daughter team who share a creative retail passion. While you may be familiar with our current two-story location, we started out in a much smaller space, okay… tiny, just down the street in November of 2013. Our store features home décor, gifts, men’s, women’s and children’s items and seasonal merchandise priced affordably for a wide range of shoppers.
When we made the move to our current location in May 2019, we knew we would be expanding to the second floor this spring. Nothing could prepare us for an expansion while in the midst of a pandemic. Nevertheless, slowly, but surely we continued to work on the second floor allowing us to create a larger and more significant selection of children’s clothing as well as women’s apparel, accessories, and gifts. Then in August, our second floor was ready!
As you make your way up the beautiful, wide staircase, you are met with light and whimsy. Cute dresses, trendy tops, cozy jammies and comfortable overall sets designed with irresistible appliqués and embroidery in newborn sizes to 5T. Moms, Dads, Aunties, Uncles, and Grandparents will find everyday items such as bath products, blankies and teethers, to those very special shower and birthday gifts. We even have some delightful new parents’ and grandparents’ gifts.
However, children’s clothing and gifts are not the only items featured on our second floor. MoMere has a special section tucked towards the back--our “book nook” offers a wonderful collection of children’s books and toys. From the beginning we knew we wanted to create a comforting space for children to sit, read, and explore the limits of their imagination.
We have since partnered with Storyhouse BookPub, another local business that has produced a perfectly curated pop-up shop in our book nook. Experience the fun of browsing engaging titles that include penguins, tacos, meowing cows and uplifting stories of empowering women and others changing the world! We also recently presented a live story time with Storyhouse BookPub via our Instagram page. Stay tuned for more coming up.
MoMere's goal has and always will be to provide our customers unique and affordable products with exceptional customer service, especially around the holiday time. It is not unusual to experience Kay or Meredith signing and dancing to your favorite Christmas songs while you shop. In fact, we highly encourage you to join in – just please don’t judge. The holiday season has always been so special to our family, full of traditions, laughter, and love. We, along with our staff, feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to share it with you.
We look forward to meeting you and spreading some Christmas Cheer!
Warmest Holiday Wishes,
Kay & Meredith
