Hello Friends, Family and Fans,
It's Fall! Let's put on a sweater, pick some apples, grab a pumpkin latte, and cozy up to what's new at Claire & Company. 2016 is going down as the year of transformation... with new clients and pivoting to keep it fresh and relevant. Enjoy the work and when in Manhattan Beach, stop by for a pressed juice 😉
