Meet David Fuss, owner of Eco Chic Gift Boutique in Plymouth
What inspired you to start your business?
We opened our first store in Plymouth’s Village Landing Marketplace in the spring of 2011. We wanted to bring a specialty jewelry and gift store to the South Shore that would offer unique products. I’ve had the chance to meet artists and craftspeople from all over the world. Giving these artists an outlet to showcase their wares was a big inspiration for us. As our business grows, so does theirs.
Why did you choose to focus on environmentally conscious products?
When we opened the first store I wanted to offer our customers products that were not only unique, but also items they could feel good about. This combination hit a chord with our customers. Our success following this business model led to us opening our second location in Kingston two years later.
What makes Eco Chic unique?
We sell jewelry, gifts and accessories that are recycled, up-cycled, fair-trade, organic, all-natural and most importantly, chic. We also feature many items that are made in New England. Our biggest offering at Eco Chic is fun. We want the shopping experience to be as enjoyable as the items that are purchased.
