Rising Tides

We believe that a rising tide lifts all boats. 

Call it the Golden Rule, call it Shine Theory, or even an economic principle. But, when it comes to Home Ec's very existence, it would all be for naught if it wasn't for the inspiration that comes from the massively talented people and businesses around us, going for it with their own dreams, passion projects, and small businesses.

We haven't written a book (yet), but if we ever do, these people would be on our big ol' list of 'Thank You's' on the very front page. Here's a short (but ever-growing!) list of our local faves and far off lovers that we can't stop talking about.

Check them out!
