The story of Thriae

Hi and welcome! So happy you are here. My name is Mel and I want to tell you a little bit about Thriae.

The creative side of my brain has been itching to start a new venture for a while now. I am a photographer and had a portrait studio as a side business for a while, but the demands of my family and full time job did not allow me to keep up with it as much as I wanted to. I shuttered that business in 2018 and have been missing business ownership ever since. 

While trying to find thoughtful holiday gifts for my family, I found myself wishing for a space where I had options curated for me. Meanwhile, I have also been trying to shop small as much as possible: small businesses have suffered greatly during the COVID-19 pandemic, and supporting them has been a personal priority. The idea for Thriae came to me in a dream, and I have been obsessed ever since. I am dedicated to sourcing finds that are not available on large e-commerce sites (who wants the same thing everyone else has, anyway?). I am particularly passionate about working with small and women-owned businesses, and am drawn to those who also have a dedication to social good. Additionally, as a NE Florida resident, I work with several local artists but source nationwide and globally as well. My intention is to have a revolving group of businesses and artists to keep the marketplace fresh and interesting.

I am particularly excited about our Capsule Collections. These will be limited-edition collections created in collaboration with an artist or business with the intention of donating a portion of the proceeds from those items to an organization of the artist's choice. Keep an eye out for Capsule Collections on our Home Page!
