Who we are


Sue and Eddie

Sue and Eddie moved to Eureka in 1998, seeking a friendly place to build their life together. Sue’s first job in the area was as a sales associate at Belle Starr, and she continued as a loyal customer for the 15 years she taught at the local college and university. Having retired from the US military, Eddie is the Executive Director for a local nonprofit serving people with disabilities. When they bought Belle Starr in 2014, Sue took on the role of general manager and works with an amazing team of women. Sue and Eddie are active in local civic and charitable organizations, enjoy attending the cultural events in the community, and can often be found exploring the beautiful redwoods, ocean, mountains, and rivers that define their forever home.



Sam joined the Belle Starr team in 2021. She has lived in the Humboldt area for over 7 years, after relocating from Stanislaus county, and enjoys roller skating, dancing, and testing vegan recipes. After studying sustainability and business, working at Belle Starr has been an integrative way to see fairtrade and sustainable fashion in action: “It’s a pleasure to work for a business that cares deeply about where and who makes their products!



Raven is a Eureka native and started at Belle Starr in 2016. She brings a friendliness and warmth to her job everyday. “I feel that I’m really part of a team that is working together to make the business thrive,” she explains.
