SOMERVILLE, NJ - Three Hearts Home, a downtown Somerville home and gift boutique, held its Grand Reopening and Anniversary event Dec. 5.
The downtown Somerville specialty shop which features artisan made, fair trade, all-natural and sustainable goods for the home and gift has recently expanded their store and is opening the brand new space to the public.
Three Hearts Home, which had its debut as an online shop, is a family owned and operated business, which is also celebrating its one year anniversary in its warm and inviting brick and mortar location at 87 West Main Street in Somerville, NJ, also the showroom of Platinum Designs. Robin Cairl, Owner and Managing Director started Three Hearts Home with her daughter Heather Cairl, who is the store’s Creative Manager, in November of 2013.
The initial idea for the development of the specialty shop was to create a store that would be an extension of the family’s other business, Platinum Designs, a custom cabinetry design build firm owned and operated by Robin’s husband Ian Cairl. During the brainstorming phase of the store’s beginning, the Three Hearts Home mission quickly became clear: to integrate a love for the earth, a love for supporting independent makers, and a love for cultivating a home environment that is personal, beautiful, and comfortable.
With this mission in mind, Robin and Heather carefully curate collections of unique and high quality goods, with an emphasis on artisanal, handcrafted, fair trade, and environmentally friendly products. The store’s product offering, which was initially mostly home goods, has expanded to include all-natural apothecary items, personal accessories, greeting cards and stationary, gifts for children and artisan made specialty food items including locally roasted coffee and fair trade tea. It is really a home and gift shop with something for everyone!
“The Cairl Family is deeply committed to supporting artisans by bringing their love of hand-crafted items to Main Street, making Three Hearts Homes a perfect example of why small independent stores are such a very big deal,” concluded Beth Anne Macdonald, executive director of the Downtown Somerville Alliance.
“Our residents and visitors can find a carefully curated range of gifts for home and hearth that cannot be found anywhere else. Knowing that the support for our independent businesses here provides so much for other independent craftspeople across the United States and globally is a pretty powerful concept. It’s amazing to see it come to life here in Somerville.”
Three Hearts Home is thrilled to be included as one of the terrific shops that you will find in downtown Somerville, which has truly become a shopping and dining destination.
