FIT grad and animal rights supporter Emily McCoy showcases her multicolored, polka-dotted porcelain home accents and screen-printed linens from this inviting corner space within David’s Watch Repair shop. Opened in 2001, the storefront was originally dubbed Daisy Dog Studio in honor of McCoy’s late pit-bull, but after a spate of confused pet owners wandered in requesting leashes, she changed the name to Rose & Daisy’s, incorporating her daughter’s name. Hand-crafted teapots, bowls, platters, cookie jars, pitchers, and more are stacked on tall lavender and azure shelves. Each is adorned with McCoy’s signature swirl pattern in vibrant shades of purple, blue, lime green, yellow, orange, or pink. The whimsical, modern designs appeal to a wide range of customers, from holiday gift-givers to animal-rights groups. The spot’s dog-friendly vibe extends beyond its pet-inspired name: McCoy contributes 5 percent of all sales to PETA and 100 percent of dog-bowl sales to Out of the Pits, the pit-bull rescue service that first convinced her to keep Daisy.
