The instant success among the small community on the Gulf of Mexico has continued over the years, emerging into a 10,000 square foot location in the Third Street South shopping district of Old Naples. Marissa Collections was destined to evolve and expanded to our second location at The Royal Poinciana Plaza in Palm Beach.
