Our Story

Salt & Co is a family owned lifestyle brand featuring curated items we personally love.  Amie and Chris McCaslin opened their first retail store, A La Mode Boutique, in 2011 on Sykesville, Maryland's Main Street.  In 2015 a second location was opened in Ellicott City, Maryland. After two devastating floods in Ellicott City in 2016 and 2018 and the loss of our store twice in less than two years, life took us in a new direction.  We moved to the beach for necessary healing and the beach provided just the therapy our family needed.  Our oldest daughter, Ashley, designed the new name and logo.  Salt is an element essential for life and healing.  The meaning behind our new lifestyle brand represents not only a love for the beach, but also a reminder to take time to heal.  The products we carry are items we use in our everyday lives and we hope they also find special meaning and healing for you.  

We plan to open a new location in Ocean City, Maryland in 2020.  Our goal has always been to create a unique shopping environment where customers can find uniquely sourced items.  We appreciate you taking the time to get to know us.
