About Minnie and Moon

I’m Emma, the owner of Minnie and Moon.  When I'm not running Minnie and Moon I'm a passionate cook, dancer, gardener, creative spirit, and mom to 2 boys. And a San Francisco native currently living outside Philadelphia.

The company is named after my grandmothers. Minnie ran the family hardware store in San Francisco. Through her side of the family I started visiting European tool factories at an early age to see how good quality tools were produced, learning the difference between items that look nice and those that really last. Moon (a nickname for Margaret), the descendant of Danish homesteaders who landed on the California coast, she passed down the practical skills of gardening, cooking, and creating a warm and cozy home. And having lived through the great depression, she also imparted a resourceful and waste-free mindset. Their influences are what inspire the products we sell.

Through Minnie and Moon we are proud to support other small businesses, strive to find ways to support women in our community, and are committed to operating with strong sense of environmental stewardship, working to reduce waste through the entire life of the products we sell.

You won’t find anything at Minnie and Moon that I don’t use and love myself. I hope you enjoy our treasures as much as I do!
