It was unusual for an event to be held on a weekend, but because I love TRIFABB and its founder, Molly from Still Being Molly , I jumped at the chance to attend. Boy, am I glad I did.
We were treated to a hot chocolate and coffee bar. I am so going to have to recreate this one day. Maybe once Gracie’s quinceanera practices start. They also had some amazing donuts from Duck Donuts, I had always heard about them but had never tried them. I knew I just had to try their Maple Bacon one as I had seen so many of my friends raving about them on Facebook.
I will have to say that besides the food, my favorite part of the meetup was the store itself. Just look at all the architectural details.
I mean seriously who would have thought of hanging a boat in a store. And I love the exposed duct work.
While we were there Ed, the Vice President of the company gave us some background about the company. It was started over 30 years ago as a boat building business in the little coastal town of Beaufort, NC. Beaufort’s claim to fame is that Blackbeard, the famous pirate, once lived there. I wrote a little about this coastal town a while back; you can read about it here.
Just recently Jarrett Bay has branched our from the shipbuilding business into the retail side of things. They have been at their current retail location in North Hills about a year.
Their retail location specializes in carrying quality items. But they will soon be branching out into the furniture business, with their line of coastal furniture.
One of the things I love about attending events with TRIFABB is that every event gives back in some way. This event was no different. 10% of their sales that day went to benefit ALS Research. I will admit that I did my part and grabbed this cool necklace.
So I hope you enjoyed Going Coastal with me.
