Fieldsman Haley and I first heard about this new shop while refueling at J5 Coffee--just steps away on 9th Street. Even while the space was under curation, it was clear that something special was about to make a splash on the off-Front Street scene. Turns out, we were right.
Field & Compass Asks: What led to your decision to open Posy?
Laurie Brenan Replies:
I have always loved walking into really great inspirational spaces whether it is a public building, someone's home or a retail space. My heart skips a beat as my eyes jump from one exciting detail to another. It inspires me to be open minded, detail oriented and courageous.
Posy allows me to immerse myself into my passion of creating warm + inviting spaces for people to be in. With the shop I get to do that again and again as our collections change and evolve. I am also inspired by someone who has taken their passion for creating something and turned it into a sustainable business that provides for themselves and their families with a lifestyle that they desire. Posy gives me the opportunity to seek these artists and designers out, get to know them, be inspired by them and ultimately support them in their endeavor.
RECOMMENDATION: Grab an espresso at J5, a top shelf cookie at The Gingerbread Factory, and stroll over to Posy to experience the inspiration for yourself.
