Salt & Shimmer Artistry
Product in box: Resin beach waves coaster
Growing up on the North Shore of Massachusetts, artist Rachele Milordi’s love for the ocean began at a young age. While attending The University of Rhode Island pursing a degree in nursing, Rachele’s love for the ocean deepened. Living just blocks away from the ocean in Narragansett and Newport, RI, Rachele still draws inspiration from her “beach breaks” between classes for all of her pieces.
After graduating in 2015, Rachele pursued a career in nursing. While she loved her patients, Rachele often felt a need to express her creative side although it wasn’t until spring of 2019 where she discovered the wonderful world of resin. She’s been hooked ever since, so much so that she has left her job in nursing to pursue a dream of owning her own business.
After several months of honing her craft through continued practice and experimentation with different materials, surfaces, and techniques, she was finally ready to pursue the dream and become a full-time resin artist. Each purchase not only supports that dream but a portion of each purchase is donated to local, Massachusetts-based non-profits..
Product in box: Original Garlic Salt
Susannah Locketti, the founder of Hippy Pilgrim, had been working in the food industry long before starting her own business. She used to make her own garlic salt, gifting it to friends and family, and after years of requests for refills, she launched Hippy Pilgrim.
What makes their garlic salt special is that it is made by hand in small custom batches for maximum freshness using locally sourced ingredients which supports farmers and growers in the community. “Lousy cooks are our best customers because all they need is our garlic salt to be a hero in the kitchen. Local chefs also rave about our salt for its versatility and depth of flavor.
Hippy Pilgrim is also a strong supporter of charitable organizations including DOVE and Relay for Life, We feel strongly about giving back to our local community.”

Product in box: Sun Kissed Tomato Hot Sauce
Born in Cypress Hall, a small town high atop the Red Hills of Kingston, Jamaica, Kamaal Jarrett, the Founder of Hillside Harvest, was taught to appreciate the simple things in life. Later, when his parents were deciding where in the United States to establish roots, they settled on Milton, Massachusetts, a small town nestled between Boston and the Great Blue Hill mountain range.
Growing-up, Kamaal showed an inherent love for food; watching endless hours of PBS cooking shows and spending the summer hours with his Aunt Elaine in her Egleston Square bakery and Caribbean restaurant. As his passion for food grew, so did Kamaal’s appreciation for the two cultures that raised him. Exposing his family to traditional American dishes or cooking authentic Jamaican dishes for his friends became a normal routine.
Today, we at Hillside Harvest strive to continue the tradition of introducing people to unique flavors and recipes. Our products are handcrafted. We aim to develop dynamic flavors through simple ingredients and provide you with premium sauces that enhance every dish and inspire you to share with those closest to you.
