Jack Anderson, originally from Tacoma, Washington, and Liliane, from Chartres, France, first opened Local Color in 1986, having recently docked in Key West after an adventure on the family home – a 42 foot sailboat. Always the sailor and leather craftsman, Jack started making leather jewelry and selling at the nightly sunset celebration on Mallory Square. Soon, Local Color opened next door to the historic Turtle Kraals, at the original location of Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville store. Always evolving, the Andersons designed their own clothing lines for the tropics and Key West jewelry collections. Today, you can see all of these influences when you shop at Local Color and Commotion, and there’s always something new! And it is still very much a family affair.
