Today we’d like to introduce you to Kimberly Neal and Theresa Lambert .
Hi Kimberly Neal and Theresa Lambert. It’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start, maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
I call her Kimmie — she calls me T. Growing up, we lived on the same street, though we never met back then. We established in 2020. Our shop is named for our shared history and love for searching alleyways for lost treasures. Our home away from home is filled with carefully curated garden-inspired florals, design elements, craft wares, and thoughtfully selected goods fashioned by local makers and brands we love. Eastland Alley Design Co. has found its forever home on the historic Fourth Avenue. We are native Tucsonan women entrepreneurs specializing in making all things beautiful.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been fairly smooth?
We opened our brick & mortar, 440, on February 20th, 2020, and were quickly forced to close our doors & hunker down for several months. The shutdown confirmed our passion for the work. It allowed us to come back ready to serve our customers with products that spoke to the cultural moment and wedding/event florals that celebrated being together again.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Eastland Alley Design Co.?
We seek to provide products and services that cultivate a curated, creative, and conscious lifestyle for our customers through event design, florals, hand-poured candles, and ethically made goods sold at our store, in local satellite shops and markets.
