Word On The Street

"Creme Collective is really the wrong name for this company of creative geniuses: they should be called the A-TEAM. I spent months working with Creme Collective to on-board their clients for an exciting TV shopping opportunity, which you can imagine has a lot of twists and turns to get things done right. There is so much comfort in knowing that the checklist to get things done always gets done when this team is involved. Can they teach a Masterclass to other companies on how to do it right?"
Danny Seo, "Naturally, Danny Seo"
"The Crème Collective team has an amazing curation of new, emerging, and established brands that they're always adding to. They are super reliable and we adore working with them! They never cease to amaze us with their support. They're truly great partners."
Olivela

Nordstrom
"Heather has been so helpful. Not only does she respond to emails quickly and kindly, she always gets our orders and questions answered on the spot. She introduces us to new lines with education and samples so our team can feel and experience the product before making decisions. Heather has been one of my favorites to work with. I can't recommend her and the Crème team more."
Salt & Water
"I love working with Heather and the Crème Collective Team. Heather is always quick to respond to any and all requests, she submits our orders in a timely fashion, and I always love our conversations when I get a chance to chat with her over the phone! The Creme Collective has some of my favorite brands! LOVE LOVE LOVE working with them!"
