Store Director Hilary’s Favorite Boston Spots

Follain South End

Our South End location in Boston was the first-ever Follain store to open. It was a labor of love, as founder and CEO Tara Foley worked on all aspects of the store and even hand painted the walls. The store officially opened for business in 2013 and since then, it’s become a staple of the neighborhood, which is known for its small businesses. Here, Store Director Hilary Falcon dishes on her favorite places in the South End and beyond. 

Meet Hilary

Hilary is an inspiration seeker, passionate about creative expression in photography and interior design. Creating health and wellness rituals is also important to her: She loves cooking, brewing herbal teas, diffusing essential oils at home, and setting aside time to take a bath, light candles, and put her phone away. She strives to cultivate peace and beauty in every facet of her life.
