How did SHAY come about?
Shay was a nickname given to me by some good friends and represents a playful, care-free, sassy nostalgia that reminds me of who I want to show up as each day. Shay also means “admirable, and a gift to homage.” Naming my brand Shay felt right - it was born out of an exploration of self that culminated in embracing and loving every part of who you are. I’ve been on a journey to love and explore my identity better and it has lead me to the person I am today. “SHAY” is all about love, acceptance, healing of self, and the hope is that this all spreads into other people.
This is only the beginning! I’m just getting started, and I’ve got a couple of my own products to shop right here on the site. But, I’m also about community and networking and holding each other up. I want this to be a place for other women-led businesses that I love and helping them to thrive as well, so go check them out and show them some love.
