Fifi’s Fine Resale of Amelia Island’s owner Jessica Miller sold the business to Jamie Bernard, who rebranded and changed the name to Pippi’s Consignment Cottage. Fifi’s has been a resale leader, serving the Amelia Island community for over 25 years. Pippi’s Consignment Cottage will build upon the foundation that Fifi’s has created.
Jessica Miller spent the last 13 ½ years growing the business that Fifi Queen started. Miller was inspired by another local business owner, Cindy Jackson, who advertised her business for sale on social media. Miller created a video about her business being for sale, within days had several interested buyers, and the store sale occurred about a month after the video was published. Miller cut consignor checks for all outstanding balances and mailed them in Thanksgiving cards so that Bernard would start with a fresh, clean slate. Miller will continue to serve the community she is passionate about selling real estate full time for Keller Williams Realty, Atlantic Partners.
