!!! (Triple Point) was started by Sam and Kiki, two sisters from NYC. !!! (Triple Point)’s focus is to show that it is possible to give to those you love while still making eco-conscious and sustainable choices.
By making simple, greener choices you can help do your part in taking care of our planet.
FUN FACT: The name !!! is meant to symbolize the silent shock, surprise, and awe you feel when you receive an awesome gift that leaves you speechless.
I am the oldest of the two sisters and the lead in building and maintaining this website. I am an artist, wife, and mom to 2 awesome little boys. Our interest in greener living stems from our love of the ocean. Aquariums are one of our favorite places to visit, but after learning about how balloons and various other plastics and trash harm sea creatures, we knew we had to do more to protect our ocean friends.
Although I’ve been working with recycled and repurposed materials all my life, I am fairly new to living a greener lifestyle and making more sustainable choices. As a mom living in a fast paced, super consumerist society, I know how hard it is to make eco-friendly decisions when not-so-Earth-friendly decisions are easier and more readily available to make. I may not be an expert, but I still feel it’s important to share my journey, in hopes that other parents may feel motivated to change various things in their lives to help the planet.
My favorite gifts to give are handmade jewelry and amigurumi (crocheted toys). Mermaids are my favorite to crochet. Mainly because I love mermaids–but also because no legs means fewer limbs to crochet lol. I also LOVE making costumes for my family. Halloween is my favorite holiday!

I am the little sister but take great pride in my middle sibling position. I was given the nickname of “Little Mama” when we were younger because I would cook for my siblings while mom was out. This is where my love began for caring for people, cooking, and creating a happy and pleasant environment began.
Around 10 years old I became a vegetarian as a challenge to myself, but as I got older and more educated it became more than a challenge. Much like my drive to be more eco-friendly in my daily life. I love animals, I love people, and I love the Earth — what more is there?
I believe every day is a celebration and that is why I put so much thought into what I give people on their special days. Meaningful gifts give me anxiety but so much fulfillment. I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by talented artists that make it easy to push forward with this plan of creating a shop and safe space for art and people to shine.
