Jambo Cards

There are so many incredible greeting card publishers in our community so I decided to create a Black greeting card shop. When you buy your next greeting card you think of us a black retailer rather than Clinton’s, Moonpig or Card factory.

Island Light

 I made some coconut rum cream also known as Kremas to cheer me up, which is traditional rum cream native to Haiti. I shared the Kremas with my friends, classmates and coworkers and they loved it. Then it struck me that it was good idea for a business where I could share my culture with my new home.
