Where You'll FIND Us: The FIND Team

As with most things in life, it takes a village. That's especially true when it comes to running a small boutique. Locally owned by Melani Wilson, also founder of our sister store, The Trove, she sets the vision, and has assembled quite a team, if we do say so ourselves, to help her make that vision a reality. We all wear many hats and bounce ideas off each other - and we have a lot of fun doing it. Check out where you'll find the FIND Team when we're off duty.

Conjure Coffee I'm a sucker for their matcha lattes + macarons from Hetty Arts Pastry. This is my go-to spot for meetings and quiet computer work.

The Golden Since it's right next door to The Find, it's where I meet my husband Brad for happy hour. I mean, you can't go wrong with a wall of wine + handcrafted cocktails!

Jorgensen YMCA I'm here just about every weekday morning. A workout to start my day is crucial for keeping my mind at ease. I tend to answer most of my emails, and scroll Instagram for inspiration, while on the elliptical.

Mocha Lounge After my workout, right around the corner is the Mocha Lounge. The comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff and great coffee keep me coming back almost daily. 

Jupiter, Florida My parents home in Florida is a perfect destination for a necessary mid-Winter escape!

Lake Gage Summer weekends here are my favorite, spent with family and friends on the water, soaking up the sunshine!

The Deck I love being outside in the Summer and love the vibe of The Deck. The Sodalicous cocktail and The Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad are my go-to.

Mother's Day: A Dressing Guide

We believe Mother's Day calls for a great dress; something simple yet feminine. Since the sun has finally decided to come out to play (at least for these next few days), we're breaking out our latest collection of lovely and Spring-y frocks, just in time for Mother's Day!

As always, the accessories are just as important as the clothing. We're partial to soft and luxurious neutrals with perforated details. These elevated staples will work season after season and are a smart fashion investment. 

Of course, we have even more hanging from our racks in store. Swing by to finalize your Mother's Day look (and pick up a gift for your fab mama)!

A Token of Your Affection

The month of May is the perfect time to celebrate the mothers of the world. Mother Nature is awakening, putting on a dazzling show of bright green grasses, the darling buds of new leaves peaking out from every branch and the flamboyantly colorful flower heads popping up, seemingly overnight, in an array of brilliant hues. This celebration of new life inspires us to fête our own mothers for the life and love they've given. 

Give your mother a thoughtful token of your love and appreciation this year - something perhaps she wouldn't buy for herself. A little bit of luxury goes a long way so we've handpicked a few of our fav-o-rite things, including hand-painted indigo scarves, versatile vests, chic clutches in elegant neutrals, fragrances, candles and skincare and the most delicate, feminine earrings in the land, handmade by our own Libby Ash.

Take a peek below then come into the store so we can help you pick out the most unique gift for your mother. We'll also be at the ready to help guide loved ones seeking a little something for you...

Where You'll FIND Me: Melani

I have strong Indiana roots and I will always have a special place in my heart, and life, for this beautiful state. It's where I was raised and where I raised my children. It is home to extended family and cherished friends, as well as my business interests. Northeast Indiana is becoming such a dynamic place to live, work and play, which certainly makes it harder to leave for my various adventures and much easier to return home. 

Here's where you'll FIND me when I'm not checking in at The FIND:

FORT WAYNE, INDIANA

I am a devotee of Mocha Lounge, and their fab menu, and schedule the majority of my meetings there. Depending on the time of my meeting, I calculate how much caffeine and sugar my day still allows (or deserves)!  Tea v. latte?  GK Baking cinnamon roll v. sesame seed peanut butter bar?  The struggle is real.


ROANOKE, INDIANA

I walk Main Street to pick up The Trove's mail, greet friends and fellow shop owners, grab coffee at Proper Pastry (and always debate biting into one of Anna's delicious croissants), take a yoga class at Powers of One, window shop at Fearless Chef, BoRo and The North End and swing by Paper Moon and Moose & Mollies for a chat. I just adore the oh-so charming vibe of #thenoke.


LOS ANGELES / NASHVILLE

There's nothing I love more than visiting my far-flung children. They're even more fun as adults and I'm so glad they picked cool places to call home. During my travels, I'm always on the hunt for cool restaurants and shops. #RetailEspionage


CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

I love to walk the lakeshore, visit friends, cheer on the Cubbies, or take in a play or musical. I just love to soak up the big city energy!


LELAND, MICHIGAN

I adore watching the sunset with a glass of wine and my husband. This is where I go to focus and restart my creativity. Water is soothing, healing and I can't get enough of the crystal blue waters of Northern Michigan.
