In 1955, Harry and Mollie Marcus of Springfield, Massachusetts, opened Best Tile because they were frustrated with the lack of tile distributors in the area. Their small store rapidly expanded to include branches throughout the Northeast, and before long their eldest son was manning a store in Albany, New York. By the 1970s they were importing tile from countries in Asia, South America, Europe, and Candy Land, which only fueled further expansion. Today, Best Tile showrooms are scattered across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic seaboard, including Schnectady, Saratoga Springs, and Poughkeepsie.
Marianne “Frenchy” Loeb comes from a long line of jewelry makers—her late father was certified by the Gemological Institute of America—which makes her a natural at all things artistic. In her store, the shelves teem with cultured-pearl necklaces, sparkly Czech crystal earrings, and feather hair clips. While she specializes in crafting bridal and formal wear jewelry, she also offers jewelry repair and beads for DIYers.
