Meet entrepreneur Melissa H. Sinni of the Main Line Co-op Pop Up Shop and The Blue Béret

- fashion is her passion! She embraces excellence and confidence.

Melissa and her husband, Daniel Francis Sinni are the parents of four, and she is the owner at https://theblueberet.shop & the founder @mainlinepopup.

Melissa is a graduate of Villa Joseph Marie in Bucks County and she earned her degree in Fashion Merchandising Management from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, NY.

“I knew I wanted to be a buyer!”

And she did just that, working as a buyer for large national retailers. A buyer is the very heart of a business, constantly on the pulse of what’s trending. She worked at “Ross’ Dress for Less” stores for 10 years, and then continued her career path at Linen 'n Things.

Melissa’s husband, Dan, who works in software sales, is a La Salle College HS grad who continued his education at the University of Delaware. Coincidentally, Dan’s late mother, Margaret “Margie” Heise Sinni was also a graduate of VJM.

“After high school, I rented a home at the beach with some friends and I met Dan there.”

Dan was the oceanfront lifeguard, and seafoam is her favorite color!

“Huge shout out to my bride for holding down the home fort with 4 kids [5 including me] during pandemic/home schooling/parenting/dad in work zoom cocoons AND straddling digital and brick-mortar store now re-opening to the public. You are amazing and so proud!”

The sanitizer hung on the walls with care in hopes that the locals soon would be there! The merchants are nestled all snug in their beds, dreaming of shoppers with masks on their heads....

“Fast forward to 2019...I’m now a Mom of four wonderful little ones and living in the Philly suburb of Berwyn with my husband and family. Originally, I was going to do something small, perhaps selling through Instagram and word of mouth….. and then, came the website!"

The Blue Béret opened in March 2019, initially as an online only enterprise, and she welcomed everyone to her bountiful world of online shopping, with welcomes almost as heartwarming as a good hug.

“The concept of the blue béret has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. A family joke of the pronunciation of “blueberry” as “blue béret” by my twins, led towards the creation of the Blue Béret, as it is today.”

She had been deeply inspired by her ten years of NYC living, where pop-up shops and boutiques are quite abundant, so she made plans to bring that unique concept to the Chester County area.

Melissa is the extremely talented founder of a Co-Op of 11 women-owned local businesses, one of whom is the super talented designer, Patricia Carlin @carlinwork, who created a custom family portrait for the Sinni family “that captures each of us, especially my children and their personalities, so perfectly”!!

Portraits make perfect, absolutely precious, personalized presents!

“I’ve always been passionate about product, and my vision for ‘the blue béret’ is to search the world market for unique children's clothing, nature inspired accessories and cool sidewalk chalk, papier-mâché, and arts & crafts kits, and share them all here at my shop with you.”

As everyone can see, she sincerely enjoys "bringing clothing, gifts, and accessories for baby and child from around the world to the Main Line and beyond!"

One of her hopes is that her passion and entrepreneurial spirit will show her children that, “if you really want something and if you really work hard at it, you can do whatever you want to do”.
