Boston-Based Businesses We Love
Olives & Grace
Nestled within a brownstone building along bustling Tremont Street in Boston, you will find Olives & Grace, a cheerful shop that supports local merchants and emerging brands.
Founded by Sofi Madison in 2012, Olives & Grace has since become a prominent neighborhood staple. This delightful shop sells various goodies for your gift-giving needs, from apparel and accessories, to stationary and pantry goods—all thoughtfully curated to match their warm and creative aesthetic. Now more than ever, there is a need to shop small and support local. What better place to start than an establishment dedicated to inclusivity, community and artistry!
