Meet the Owners

Who is Coast & Country? We are a mom (Karen) and pop (Chris) store located in the seaside village of Rockport, Massachusetts, a vibrant art colony where 19th century fishing shacks have been transformed into beautiful little shops (ours is 400 square feet).

Each season, Karen scours the markets to create a fresh, contemporary collection of casual classics, at an affordable price point. Karen's passion is to offer as many lines as possible that are produced sustainably and that offer a living wage to the makers. And to showcase unique, handcrafted, sustainable jewelry and accessories made by local artisans and by women at risk in developing nations.

Why do we give back 10% to the nonprofit of your choice? Because we have been given much. We are blessed with two wonderful children, good health, and a roof over our heads. We believe that because we have, we are obligated to help those who do not have.

Thank you for shopping at Coast & Country! We're all in this together!
