Maribeth VanZalen and Jamie Grasman have been spending time together for the past thirty years. As mother and daughter, they have a deep friendship nurtured by countless family occasions such as boating trips and vacations up north. Their much cherished “girl getaways” served as the catalyst for their future partnership in the fashion business.
Both women have an innate sense of style, tweaked by countless hours of shopping and discussing the latest fashions. Perhaps it is a genetic trait passed on from generation to generation or simply an acquired talent…whatever the case, the two women have became authorities on all things stylish.
The idea of jb and me first began on the way back from a weekend of shopping in Chicago. Maribeth and Jamie found themselves dreaming of opening their own store. They discussed all aspects of the business, from which lines they would carry to the type of service they would strive to offer. They both agreed that a unique boutique experience was just what Holland, MI needed, and thus, they set out to create just that.
The two promised each other that they would always put their faith in God and their relationship as Mother and daughter first. This steadfast foundation has influenced the success of jb and me for the past eleven years.
In March of 1997, jb and me opened in a 1400 sq ft space downtown Holland. Currently, the store features 8,000 sq ft of fashion, situated only steps from its original location. The new store features a denim studio, a great selection of tees and women’s clothing, a bath and beauty bar and home accessories. The store's address is 36 W. 8th Street, Holland, Michigan, 49423
