Hello!
I'm Shan
Rosie Joan began as a way to connect with my two sweet twins and remember my grandmother, who was a source of inspiration and light in my life. Along the way, this journey has brought so much more meaningful connection with other makers, customers turned friends and my family, who play an integral role in helping in the day to day.
Thank you for being here!
so, who is
rosie joan?
Rosalie (Rosie) Joan was the beloved matriarch of our family and my grandma. She had a high flair for fashion, even at 81 years young. She took great pride in her appearance and looked so much younger than her years, which when noted would always make her beam.
The values and life lessons that she shared with me are the same things that I hope to pass on to my kids.
Like so many, cancer took her life sooner than we were prepared for. This is our way to have her live on.
