Stoney Clover Lane is a happy, customizable accessories and lifestyle brand. Founded in 2009, sister duo Kendall Glazer and Libby Glazer have reimagined travel, customization and organization through their keen eye for style, light-hearted vibe, and of-the-moment lens. Kendall and Libby serve as co-CEOs and co-creative directors. Utilizing their natural business savvy, strong point of view, and keen attention to detail, they wear many hats at SCL HQ. You can find them choosing the next seasonal deliveries and limited-edition collaborations, reviewing store designs, and brainstorming new and exciting brand extensions. Kendall likes to interact with customers directly, whether helping to create the perfect gift in-store or answering questions on Instagram about all things SCL. Both Kendall and Libby are graduates of Tulane University and currently reside in New York City. You can find the founders and co-creative directors running the company from their New York City headquarters, at Stoney Clover Lane’s brick-and-mortar stores in Palm Beach and East Hampton, or down the street at their New York City pop-up, all while sharing their (well-accessorized) journey with their 110,000 Instagram followers.
