Our Florida Trunk Show Tour begins its 2nd week as Lauren and the Dune Team travel through Alligator Alley and arrive on the Gulf Coast. We invite you to see the team live and in person if you plan to be close to any of our show locations. We can promise a good time, great jewelry and a FREE gift for anyone who purchases a beach sand memory from your favorite port o’ call.
Our retailer spotlight this week is Nic Nac Nook Jewelers in Venice, Florida. Where we will be live-Tuesday 2/23 from 2-4pm.
Nic Nac Nook Jewelers has been located in Venice, Florida since 1963. It is the longest established jewelry store in the area, family owned for two generations. Owners Jeff and Kristen Dougherty were raised in Venice and feel a deep connection with the community. They enjoy sharing their "hometown" with its residents, visitors and "snowbirds". Growing up on the beach, they have always appreciated the treasures and pleasures of the shore.
"We love Dune Jewelry because we can share our love of our beautiful beaches", says owner Kristen. "Our local residents that walk the beaches or take beach Yoga classes purchase the line as a statement of their love for the beach. Tourists swoop in and pick up a piece of Dune as a special memento of their visit. And we also get a lot of locals who buy graduation gifts, so their high-school kids can take a 'little piece of home' with them when then travel off to college."
Kristen (Jewelry Designer) and Jeff (Jeweler) appreciate the uniqueness of every piece made with the sand. "If I have more than one piece they like such as a bracelet, necklace, etc. in stock, I let my customer look at all of them showing them the uniqueness of each piece so they can choose the piece that 'speaks' to them," says Kristen. "I think Dune Jewelry expresses the tranquility and wonder of nature, like a wave that changes the shoreline every time it descends and recedes from our feet."
