Opening Nana in 2003, owner Jackie Flanagan likes to say it all started because of Julia Child. After seven years, Jackie was a bit tired of working in the corporate world. Her boyfriend, Joe, kept reminding her that Julia Child did not learn how to cook until she was over 30 years old so it was never too late to pursue what makes you most happy in your professional life.
Well, one day the advice stuck and the shop was opened with Jackie’s grandmother in mind: “My Nana has such fashion smarts. I look up to her grace and subtle glamour … she is the ultimate stylish, savvy woman.” They are very close. Her Nana lives outside of Boston with her dog Carmen.
The shop has evolved over the years (and Jackie and her “boyfriend” may have evolved from a U Street-out-and-about-couple to a married-with-two-kids-city-residing family).
