Our Story

Follow your passion

When a group of female employees said to Deb Thomson, “you don’t even wear the same outfit twice a month,” her wheels started turning. It was soon after that she left a successful career in restaurant management to follow her passion for clothing and turn it into a business. In 2006, Deb opened One N Main in Essex Village.

Fourteen years later, Deb is still shopping and merchandising outfits for customers who’ve come to depend on her thoughtfully curated mix of women’s clothing and accessories. Deb thrives on collecting pieces of clothing and creating unique outfits that fit her customers’ individual and varied lifestyles.

One N Main’s emphasis is on quality brands that last and can be reimagined over the years to create a timeless look. The store prides itself on its Cashmere and Denim focus – a combo that takes customers from office to dinner and travels anywhere! 

Of course, One N Main would not be possible without the support of Deb’s husband Ernie. In fact, customers and fellow merchants like to say, “we all need an Ernie” – he’s sweet as can be, does all the shipping, delivery, and miscellaneous errands, keeps the staff fed and brings in coffee every day. All the while, having his BIG dog, Truffles, right by his side.
