Our Story

How do you say it? "niCH or nēSH?

We say it doesn't matter as long as your find yours!

We are Chris Gray and DeDe Bennett. We celebrate a friendship of 14 years!

Chris, a retired teacher and mom and DeDe, a former psychology teacher/ counselor and soccer mom have decided to reinvent ourselves by opening niche., an exclusive Bramble furniture store complimented with décor and gifts. We value being moms, wives, friends and consider ourselves nurturers who like to give gifts. So…what better niche for us than to open a store that is more than a store – it is an Experience!

We like beautiful things, re-purposed finds, gifts, quotes , coffee, lavender, sunshine, hugs and sharing life with others. It’s our goal for our new and old friends to come to niche. for a special gift for themselves or others and to leave feeling inspired, energized and nurtured.

Our "small" shop took off into something bigger than we could have ever imagined! Our days consist of navigating new questions and learning how to make the niche. experience even better as we grow. We carry a variety of brands and products in our store, and they are always changing. A number of lines have meaningful purposes and donate to great causes, which makes them extra special for us. We decided to open our online store in Spring 2020 and hope to be able to share a little slice of niche. no matter where you live! We won't be able to give you a cup of coffee or a sweet lavender infused chocolate chip cookie, but we hope you find shopping with us just as relaxing!
