An interview with Tanis Yannetti.

Tell us about Dragonfly Unique Curations and why you started it. The store is an intentional eclectic assortment of beautiful, unique and interesting pieces. My mom, Marilyn Yannetti, and I are excited about featuring handcrafted items and giving artists a venue to show their work, while also stocking the store with an ever-changing array of other desirable items. We started this business to do something creative together as mother and daughter. We wanted to combine our love of art and searching for treasures to share this with our community.  

What is the best piece of business advice you’ve ever received? The best piece of business advice I ever received was observed rather than articulated. I worked with my father, Ronnie Yannetti, in a family business for many years, and even before I worked with him, I watched how he conducted himself in business. He always took the high road and was always a gentleman. My father was beloved by all because he treated everyone with empathy, kindness, and respect. When I am at odds with what to do, I try to always ask myself, what would Ronnie do? And then I do that.  

What is your favorite spot in Marblehead, and why? My favorite spot in Marblehead is our home, because it houses our amazing family and beloved dogs.

What is something people would be surprised to learn about you? I don’t think people who know me are surprised by much at all. Take that as you may.
