About Pinc!

Porkchops & Applesauce was created by Kimberley Pettey, a childrenswear designer longing for her native New England & a more creative, independent design experience outside of the garment industry.  With a small sample line of one-of-a-kind baby bedding & clothing, Kimberley set out in late 2004 on a business endeavor that would bring her home to Connecticut.  When new products were added to the line in 2005/2006 - Diaper bags, Totes & small Home decor, such as pillows - the baby gear took a back seat. Porkchops & Applesauce "grew-up" and became simply Pinc! In October of 2009, Pinc! opened its first brick-and-mortar retail location in downtown New London, CT.  In June 2010, Pinc! expanded both in square footage & product offerings, to include handcrafted goods from other talented local artisans & vintage dealers. In November 2013 we closed our retail shop in New London after fighting the tide of scomnomic downturn for years - we will get back to basics,dwonsize & run the business from home and see where it leads!

Pinc! the BRAND encompasses many handcrafted, unique products designed & crafted in-house.
