Day 21 - Overman & The Frankie Strange

Overman began as a hobby for owner Matt Bowness back in 2009, and has since grown into a full-time business. In 2010, Overman was named as one of nine "Canadian Jewellery Designers to Know" by ivillage.  In 2012, the company opened a store in Charlottetown on Water Street. That same year Overman was invited to participate in a gifting suite at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles where many top television stars received their products.

Earlier this year Overman joined forces with the Frankie Strange, an established vintage clothing boutique in Charlottetown, and are now known as “Overman & The Frankie Strange”. They had their Grand opening on February 28th at their shop located at 52 Great George Street. Their Facebook page descriptor says it all: “a weird little mix of all things strange”.
