Allie has worked for Little Luxuries since 2019. She worked on the island in the stores the season of 2019 and since 2020 she now works remotely assisting in all aspects of the business; marketing, website, book keeping and more! Allie's creativity and organizational skills help make Nicole and the team successful. Allie is a joy to work with and spend time with outside of shop work. We are very thankful to have Allie be a huge part of Little Luxuries even though she can't be on the island all the time.
Here's a little bit more about Allie ....
Where did you grow up? I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania.
What college did you attend? I attended Cedarville University in Ohio.
How did you end up in Michigan? After college, I wanted a new adventure! I had visited friends that lived in Northern Michigan and fell in love with the Great Lakes and the area!
What is your favorite thing to do when you're not working? I’m usually spending my time reading, taking my dog, Millie, for a walk or traveling with my husband!
What do you love most about Mackinac Island? I love everything about Mackinac Island! One of my favorite parts is walking down Main Street first thing in the morning, when the streets are still quiet. If I have more time during the day, I love to go from Arch Rock to the Mackinac Island Airport, via Leslie Avenue. It’s beautiful anytime of the year!
What is your favorite book of all time? I can never pick just one, but I do really love historical non-fiction! One of my favorite books is The Alice Network by Kate Quinn.
What is your favorite retail store other than Little Luxuries? :) I love Catching Fireflies + Found in Ann Arbor. But if I’m not shopping small, I absolutely love Target!
Thank you Allie! We hope our customers and readers know a little bit more about Allie and what happens behind the scenes at Little Luxuries!
