Kip Kennedy has opened her “resort-inspired” clothing, gift and accessory “studio” in the St. Onge building, next door to Taste Restaurant. She specializes in moderately priced resort clothing, gifts and accessories. Kip initially planned the space to be a working studio, only open to the public one or two days per week, or by appointment. However, based on the warm welcome she has received from new friends in Hobe Sound and the surrounding area, as well as many of her current clients, she is looking forward to expansion beyond her “studio” concept next season. In addition to her shop, you can often find her “popping up” in festivals and markets on the east coast. She is currently in the Cape Cod market in the summer. Kip is a born and raised New Yorker from East Hampton/Montauk, New York. She has been a resident of Martin County for 30 years, raising her children here and participating on community boards in Stuart and Sewalls Point. She has an extensive retail background in Florida and New York having worked as a Buyer/Divisional for Federated – Macy’s Department Store for 18 years. Kip looks forward to welcoming more of the community and visitors to her new shop.
