Our Story

Our Story

Hey there beautiful souls! I'm Marielle, the founder of Hey Kiki, and I'm thrilled to share the story behind our little joy-filled haven.

For over two decades, the dream of having a store filled with gifts that bring pure joy has been simmering within me. Life took our family on an incredible global adventure, living in different countries, soaking up diverse cultures, and embracing the tapestry of human stories. As we landed back on our stunning island, Curacao, and built our dream house, I knew the time was ripe to turn this dream into reality.

Hey Kiki isn't just a store; it's a celebration of joy, love for people, and a passion for diverse stories. Having lived and worked in various cultures, my fascination with people and their unique tales ignited the spark behind Hey Kiki.

Connection, diversity, and inclusivity became the heartbeat of our vision - a space where individuality is not just accepted but celebrated.

We want you to look at our stuff and feel that connection. Our mission is to offer products that mirror your authentic self, radiate joy, and embrace the beauty of your uniqueness.

Our core values—Individuality, positivity, authenticity, humor, and inclusivity—are the guiding stars that shape everything we do. It's not just about selling; it's about celebrating you, embracing diversity, and promoting equality.

The store is named after my daughter, embodying the spirit of her generation. I'm a proud Gen X-er, but love Gen Z for their open-mindedness, their focus on mental health, and using their voice for social justice. Hey Kiki is more than a store; it's a celebration of you.

As you embark on this journey with us, feel free to share your unique stories. Let's create a space where authenticity, connection, and the celebration of individuality reign supreme.
