My name is Marissa and my blog is all about collecting and sharing life's wonderful and memorable moments. It's truly important to take the time to capture these moments whether it's big or small. Moments become memories and one's memories are truly priceless.

Ninna Lu began in 2011 as a personal mission to provide a pocket-friendly selection of fashion and accessories from designer-inspired (new and pre-loved), vintage (after the 1920's), and eventually began handmade within that time frame. Walking the streets of the fashion district in Los Angeles, California sparked this inspiration and immediately began an eBay store. From eBay, Facebook, Etsy, Poshmark, and so many other selling platforms on the web today and in the future, Ninna Lu is determined to innovate its offerings of products and services. It's an intimate shopping experience, never grand or overwhelming.

In my hopes to open a brick and mortar shop (pre-pandemic), I began event coordination of a traveling boutique and began joining vendor events aside from an online presence. I wanted to engage with potential clients, who over time also became my friends. Throughout the years of vendor event participation, I then began The Neighborhood Marketplace, a group of empowered women in business, from direct sales brand owners, crafters to artisans. Hence the start of the online shopping and venue marketplace experience within the TNM Collective Facebook group.
Now in my tenth year as a blogger for Ninna Lu, my love for DIY arts and crafts has led me to offer make and take experiences. I share my story only to inspire others who may have the same interests. Stay tuned!
