 About Charm City Collections

 Aloha! Charm City Collections was named for owner Brooke Bloomquist’s dad’s home town of Baltimore, Maryland, and was a dream born in Brooklyn, New York, and tied together in Maui, Hawaii, where Bloomquist resides. For three years while living in Brooklyn, Brooke envisioned a company that featured only limited edition products that always remain fresh and new. It all started with the quintessential Christmas tie when Brooke discovered a small factory in Brooklyn to cut, sew and assemble the original, handmade in the USA men’s ties. Along with the birth of the business came purpose… to bring back simpler days and traditional values, and to support scholarships for women through the sale of its products. Charm City Collections plans to bring many more limited edition items to the American marketplace, whether accents, collectibles, or centerpieces. Luxury is not only reserved for the rich! Charm City Collections is a division of BrookeMarieAndCompany, LLC. Mahalo!
