Owned by a mother daughter team in Holland, MI,  owners, Maribeth VanZalen and Jamie Grasman, both have an innate sense of style.  Tweaked by countless hours of shopping and discussing the latest fashions, the two women have became authorities on all things stylish.

The idea of jb and me first began on the way back from a weekend of shopping in Chicago. Maribeth and Jamie found themselves dreaming of opening their own store. They discussed all aspects of the business, from which lines they would carry to the type of service they would strive to offer. They both agreed that a unique boutique experience was just what Holland, MI needed, and thus, they set out to create just that.

Currently, the ladies are launching an on-line store that will offer the same products and services that have made jb and me (the store) successful. They hope to bring the personalized service, the quality products and the unique experience of jb and me to the web. carries a wide selection of hip designer apparel, accessories, shoes and more!

As ergonomic and beautifully designed as it is, it’s still only $15, so makes a great stocking stuffer.

Did I mention it’s a green product too?

100% recyclable, Jimi wallet’s also an award winning, recycled/recyclable, made in USA accessory product that’s being sold in more and more places – from the MoMA design store, NYC to boutiques in Tokyo.
