My store is 100% fair trade, fair pay, artisan and artist created, eco friendly and cozy, sea inspired, travel inspired, slightly boho, very cozy, slightly Italian, slightly Nordic, slightly New England sea town and forests, and inspired by a very long love of travel and ethical retail. A Cozy Sea Shop was born of love and loss and a lifetime of passions finally coming to fruition of aesthetics, art, travel, nature, cozy decor, architecture, and … creating, marketing, purchasing, researching, copy writing, photographing, and selling eclectic retail and brands and pieces I really love and am inspired by. Please visit COZYSEASHOP.COM this holiday season! We are adding more items as they arrive (covid delays be damned) every single day! Hand wrapped retro and modern items made with love!
I have a new business that is travel inspired! xoxo. cozyseashop.com
A Cozy Sea Shop is an eclectic, Italian / Nordic / French / and coastal New England travel-inspired gift shop opening just in time for the holidays, with New England sea town local and vintage pieces, home decor, floral designs and flower crowns, fine art photographs, indie art history and travel books, our own signature beeswax candles with essential oils, custom astrology charts, custom flower chocolate gift boxes, custom tea blends from our own A Cozy Tea Shop, and a collection of found and handmade artisan pieces for the minimalist or maximalist in us all.
A Cozy Sea Shop is inspired by 25 years of world travel, and by art design, travel photography, home decor design, and retail marketing, merchandising, and buying for leading boho inspired brands like Anthropologie, Free People, Benetton, Janie & Jack, multiple indie labels, and more.
Rebecca is a travel and portrait photographer, a designer, and a writer who fell in love with Italy in 1998 alongside with her adventurous late husband Rian, who was a brilliant self-taught historian, and a fellow lover of art and culture. They travelled all over the US, Europe, and many other parts of the world, (and he lived all over India, Asia, and North America), and they spent a lot of time revisiting Italy, New Orleans, New England (home base), the American desert, the British Isles (Anglo and Celtic), Ireland, France, Germany, and many other beautiful spots. They loved returning to places over and over again to experience local culture and traditions, and to bring something deeper and expanded within them back home, incorporated into their lives in the states.
When the travel bans are lifted A Cozy Sea Shop’s goal is to return to beloved parts of Europe and (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland to name a few…) to photograph, experience, TO SHOP, and to share through this shop the understated gorgeous unique style of Scandi/Nordic home decor and the seasonal holiday traditions of Europe.
Until then, A Cozy Sea Shop can offer now exclusive pieces from Europe and New England.
A Cozy Sea shop will be fully launched before Thanksgiving (November 26th).
A contemplative wintry misty autumnal drive two years ago that remains in my heart. I love where I live. New England. My region in Massachusetts and the very nearby surrounding towns and villages. Covid lockdown for several months compounded with 2 and a half years of grief makes me long for long drives and photo walks again. Stay tuned.
