Stacy Simmonds had a long career in retail, branding, and sales, all the while with a lifelong dream of opening her own store. Before settling in Serenbe, Stacy, and her husband, Jason, lived in cities all over the country. She didn't know it at the time, but everywhere she lived she was acquiring the inspiration for what is now Hamlin, her modern lifestyle store in the Selborne neighborhood. The relaxing in-store atmosphere, the curated "necesary(ish)" products, and the amazing experiences she creates, including an Adult Big Wheel Race, are all about "making adults feel like kids again".
Stacy Simmonds is the owner + founder of Hamlin, a modern lifestyle store. After working for 15+ years and wearing many hats for large retailers and small brand start-ups, Stacy was ready to go after her dream and build her own brand from the ground up. She was not alone in this endeavor, with strong encouragement + support from her husband, Jason, the small business adventure began.
