  • Women of the World: Transcending Borders With Art
    October 8 2018

    by Jane Stringham //

    As much as we’d like to believe otherwise, the notion of “home” is just not a fixed one.  Whether by necessity, force, or choice, sometimes our homes — both conceptually and physically — become uprooted.

  • Glass Ceilings and Mother's Day Brunch
    April 30 2018


    “Women like to be close,” said Jo of our Mother’s Day makeover at 9th and 9th — a makeover of the front room, that is.  Earlier this month, what’s been lovingly referred to as the “living room” (did you know our flagship store used to be a home?) became the locale for a celebrati...

  • Creating Space in our Communities
    November 17 2017

    by Sheridan Mordue //

    For nearly 20 years, I have filled my Hip & Humble shops with goodies for the holidays.  I max our credit line for little baubles, silly socks, European shoes and smelly soaps.  I find that sleepless nights are the norm and painstaking merchandising is a must.  Late night traini...
