1Pier by One Community is a business collective of 9 women entrepreneurs, combining their treasures and talent as retailers at the St. Petersburg Pier. Most sell hand-crafted and uniquely sourced products reflecting the culture of St. Pete’s “black, beauty and beach” communities.
Their products are as eclectic as the women themselves. Hand-painted flip flops by AGAPE Sole Shoetique; shimmering body oils by Glow Up Body Oils; the latest frame fashions by Virgini-Contour Eyewear Accessories; and Skin Kandii’s all-natural body scrubs and lip glosses are among 1Pier featured products.
Our patrons can purchase hair fashion and products by Tabatha Exquisite Touch Salon; imported Kimonos from Lounge Apparel; and the signature desserts of Island Flavors and Tings (mango bread, calypso cake and Jamaican rum cake); along with the custom bling shirts and masks of InSparkleMe. For our four-legged friends, Diesel Dog Apparel provides tailored dog collars, doggie shirts and accessories.
The nine ladies represent the first African American business collective to operate at one of Pinellas County’s major tourist attractions (the St. Petersburg Pier). Their venture is financially backed by the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg and the City of St. Petersburg.
