About Us


Thistle + Reed is a boutique retailer started in 2016 by friends, Marisa O'Brien and Shannon Pecorelli. Their mission is to offer easy to wear fashion trends for the everyday woman that are as comfortable as they are flattering.  They're passionate about inspiring women to take some time out, focus on themselves, have fun and feel beautiful!

Shannon & Marisa opened their fashion truck in 2016, which offered an exciting and unique shopping experience. You would see them traveling all over the state of CT and into Western MA, as they visited wineries, small businesses, private parties and other local events. In 2019 the truck sold in just 48 hours.  In 2017, they launched an online store. 

In 2019, Thistle + Reed added a brick and mortar store in Farmington, CT. Located within Crafted Hair Salon, it’s a collaborative space where women can come to shop, book salon services, or just come in to chat!  Each style found at Thistle + Reed is carefully hand picked by Marisa and Shannon.  You'll always find one-of-a-kind hand made accessories from local artisans in the boutique and fashion truck.
