The Early Days
Erica shares a look at the early days of Seaside when she was a new mom and a hostess at Bud & Alley’s (with a degree in Interior Design in her pocket). A budding relationship with the town founders led to a decades-long career establishing and evolving the retail component of Seaside.
Open Lines of Communication
These two work closely together everyday and still talk non-stop outside of work. Erica describes their workspace as a great space to collaborate. Everyone throws ideas out and brainstorms as a team to make the most of creativity. Makenzie says this atmosphere and teamwork approach allows them to put their best foot forward as a brand.
Saying No to Added Pressure
Makenzie talks about removing unnecessary pressure to be perfect and how she accepts that she won’t be the best at everything. With some things you have to make little sacrifices in order to be fully present and make life easier.
Erica shares an exciting development and what’s ahead for The Seaside Style!
