Happy Shopping Madness Season!
A trend in 2017 that I have seriously enjoyed is how much positive popularity Miami has gained thanks to several entrepreneurs who had a vision and ran with it. I wanted to highlight a few of them because they’re worth all the praise in the world.
Martha of Miami
I love attention to detail. I love puns. I love satire. I love graphic tees. Martha from Martha of Miami manages to nail all those in her work. She also has mugs, tank tops, bathing suits, dad caps, and the famous batas de casa.
You’re not from Miami if you don’t understand that greatness that this design is. It basically captures Miami and its diversity in its entirety. From Walter Mercado to the Cuban dominoes. If it’s from Miami, she’s got you.
My personal favorite is the Cuban Bred t-shirt. It combines my heritage with my favorite item on every Cuban menu…Cuban bread. The sticker on the lower right corner is the brand’s claim to fame…the Pina Colada. A play on words with photos like no other. You can find her amazing items for your family this Christmas on www.marthaofmiami.com.
The Salty Donut
A picture is worth a thousand words. The geniuses at The Salty Donut craft these gorgeous creations on a daily basis for their ever growing customer count. They are the year round Knaus Berry farm and they never get old. They transform your taste buds in such a way that any other doughnut tastes like cardboard. People stand in line for HOURS to have their lives revolutionized by the place. Your family and friends will love you forever and ever if you show up with a box of these for Christmas or you can turn it into a family outing. Have a Nutella one on me.
Technically they’re not in Miami, but they’re close enough in Florida to be considered. Hubs and Hers is a business owned by a young couple who are so madly in love with each other, they decided to turn that love into a business. They make it all. Mugs, shirts, keychains, and even flannel shirts. Couples nowadays really do not appreciate each other as much as we should. Loyalty, respect, and compassion is something we need to give each other more. This company is a fabulous way to express your love to your significant other. Married or not!
Their claim to fame comes from the “His Babe” collection and their witty ways of making love cool again.
Any Miami business I miss? Let me know!
