Tell us a bit about yourself...
I'm Katie Finn Cashman, born and raised in Avon-by-the-Sea, NJ which is home to the very first Bungalow Road! I live with my husband and three kids in Bradley Beach, NJ. Before our family began to grow, I worked as an event planner for a bank in NYC. As the kids got older, the life-long idea to build a business locally that would not only reflect my love of all things kitchen and gift-giving, but also provide a solid work foundation for others and allow me the flexibility to be with my family. I opened just that in Avon, NJ with success. The stars began to align and it was time to grow, and I met Kara. She was in a similar boat with her business and ready to make this dream a fast and fierce reality. Fast forward to the present... WE DID IT! I realized I couldn't do it alone, and by embracing that philosophy and the team we have in place, I wouldn't have been able to step away from Bungalow Road in the flesh and live in France with my family for a year. How's that for a strong team.. WOOT!
What might we catch you wearing?
I keep it simple with a dash of flare. I love dresses. You might see me in a solid colored sun-dress paired with drop earrings, a chunky bracelet and a cute pair of sandals. That's it. You know what they say... "sometimes less is more". Summer is my favorite season and did I mentioned I ♥ dresses?!
Where is your favorite hang?
My kitchen! I am mildly obsessed with all things kitchen, it is the heart of my home and I love adding to the ambiance. I love to entertain with my SCOUT Cooler, Coastal serving pieces, and starfish hand painted glasses.
What is the best Bungalow Road gift to give?
All of it! If I had to pick one, it would be the Blessings Bracelet! Nothing is better than giving someone a birthday gift they will treasure forever AND that brings meaning to their everyday. Click here and you will see what I mean.
