Jacksonville native Angie Sparks fills her Rosie True boutiques with things she would wear. For Angie, the perfect outfit is jeans, an oversized t-shirt, and accessories.
In the late 90s, Angie was living in Seattle, managing one of her favorite boutiques. Two years later, she moved back to her hometown and opened her own store, Rosie True, in San Marco. It was 1999, and Angie says the first shop really was a dream on a dime.
With a Bachelor’s of Art with a focus in architecture and interior design, Angie chooses designers and artists whose craftsmanship expertise is unparalleled. This has helped guide the layout of the stores, the detailed displays and the beautiful vignettes that capture the authentic style of Rosie True.
