LIFE AT FOXY’S AFTER THE STORM
A NOTE FROM FOXHOLE FOUNDER, TESSA CALLWOOD
On September 6th, 2017, Hurricane Irma rocked our world, bringing massive destruction to the tiny of island of Jost Van Dyke. Since that fateful day, we have lived through fear, grief and confusion. But after the storm clouds cleared, we eventually returned to a ‘new normal’, measuring our days by the Caribbean sunsets that silhouette our coast, the raindrops that turn our hillsides back to a vibrant green and by the heartfelt smiles on our visitors’ faces.
Although badly damaged, the foundation and character of Foxy’s remains. Our small staff is working every day, clearing debris, rebuilding structures, painting and enduring leaky (or missing) sections of roof. Since the storm, customers have starting sailing in again – albeit lesser in number – they are not lesser in spirit.
When you make a purchase at the Foxhole Boutique, the bag that holds your wares bears the statement “Foxy’s: Forget the State of Nations, this is a State of Mind.” Our many visitors, scattered across the globe, are helping to remind us that this is more than just a slogan. We have heard from many of you out there who cannot be here with us physically on Jost Van Dyke but are with us in your hearts.
It is in that spirit that we have been prompted to create this online store for the Foxhole. We will be starting out small - with some of our best-loved designs. We then hope to add new styles and designs and would love your input! We very much need your reaction to this effort and suggestions to help make it successful. In the year to come, we hope to improve the site to help raise the necessary funds to continue the incredible task of rebuilding.
Thank you for sticking with us.
We're so glad you're here!
