About Us: A Love Letter

Kanibal & Co. (formerly Kanibal Home) was one of those stubborn weeds that kept growing. The shop started out online in 2006 selling mostly refurbished furniture and in 2009 grew into a small storefront off Grove Street in Downtown Jersey City. Busting at the seams and almost eight years later, Kanibal & Co. moved into its current location at 197 Montgomery Street where the shop continues to expand its offerings. And then in 2023 we opened a second location in Downtown Summit.

The store stocks a rotating collection of goods that are both forward-thinking and rooted in tradition – everything from apparel and accessories to home furnishings and fine jewelry – but the bones that make up Kanibal & Co. are its locally-made products and curated findings. 


I always imagined the shop as a way to create a partnership with the local community that both filled a void and fulfilled a passion – to elevate handmade, honor process and bring back a sense of whimsy into decorating one’s self and home. Since the opening of the brick-and-mortar location, Kanibal & Co. has collaborated with local talent to produce an eponymous line of apparel, home goods, and fine jewelry (all available online as well as in-store). The shop also holds monthly craft classes taught by New Jersey-based artists, where 100% percent of the cost goes back to the instructor.  


My background is varied, and I’ve worn many different hats – morgue assistant, rugby player, ice cream scooper and snack cake mascot wrangler, to name a few – but nothing has made me as happy as being a small business owner in Jersey City and Summit.
