General Info

All my life I have loved the beach and the water.
My birthday is the 4th of July so I have spent every single birthday celebrating at the beach first in Korea, then at OBX, Ocean City, Dewey, Rehoboth or on a lake in Wisconson and Virginia or the river in Annapolis... there was always water.

I was blessed enough back in the 80's (PS - best decade ever) to live in Hawaii, thanks to my Dad. (He is the one who shared his love of the beach and water and water sports with me) And now I am blessed enough to have a home in Rehoboth Beach.

I have a degree in Graphic Design, spent years working at Sundog doing t-shirt designs for everyone from the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Universal, Disney and local schools and organizations - BUT my favorite shirt designs have ALWAYS been the ones found in surf shops.

I'm OBSESSED with surf shops and all the amazing designs found there.

I loved the way the shirts I bought made me feel when I wore them later. They brought the feeling of being at the beach into my every day life.

THAT IS EXACTLY what I want all the products from Sunshine and Saltwater to do - Bring the beach into your everyday life - your wardrobe, your home, your car, your waterbottle... your life. So even when you aren't sitting at a beach or your favorite tiki dive bar or in a local surf shop - you can feel like you are there!!

For those of you who love the beach as much as I do - my hope is I can bring a little bit of the beach vibe to you with every one of my products.

Together, we're making waves for a cleaner, healthier shoreline.

We're committed to a sustainable approach in every step of our process:

  • Limited Production Runs: We produce our items in small, carefully planned batches to ensure that each piece finds a home without excess waste.
  • Vintage and Gently Used Collection: Our Second Wave Thrift initiative offers a curated selection of pre-loved surf and beach attire, giving these items a second chance and reducing the demand for new production.
  • Quality Materials: We prioritize durable, long-lasting materials, ensuring our products withstand the test of time and reduce the need for frequent replacements.
  • Recyclable Packaging: We use eco-friendly packaging materials that are both recyclable and made from sustainable sources.
  • Supporting Local Artists: By collaborating with local artists, we not only celebrate their talent but also minimize the environmental impact associated with large-scale production and shipping.

Together, these efforts contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally-conscious approach to fashion.
