Chatting with Darilynn Evans, owner of Darilynn’s
A sunlight-filled gift shop in the heart of downtown Cohasset, Darilynn’s is a destination for elegant wedding and hostess gifts, cute baby items and an assortment of coastal home accessories.
What do you love most about running your business?
I love that each day is different and presents a new challenge. I love that my business is in my hometown. I love that the business is so very social and has allowed me to meet so many wonderful and interesting people these past 12 years. But, what I love most is when customers say, “I knew I could find just the right gift at your shop!” This comment puts a smile on my face and makes it all worthwhile.
What do you look for when choosing items to bring into the store?
I look for items that I would be proud to give as a gift or have in my home; things that are appropriate for my customer base and on trend.
What advice do you have for people creating gift registries?
Choose gifts that you wouldn’t necessarily buy yourself. It’s okay to be practical, but it’s also okay to choose some very special gifts that can be used over the years. Give your family and friends many choices in all price ranges.
