Frankie Harris is the creative genius behind Ujamaa Collective’s fabulous window display in the Centre Avenue business corridor. She is a merchandiser and works to design coordinating scenes and product arrangements in the Ujamaa Boutique that help sell the products and tell the stories of our talented artists, locally and from around the world.
Frankie’s sole proprietorship business, The Power of One, is a special event planning service, dedicated to helping you to gather your family and friends using fun, tasteful and extraordinary themes and adding a special touch with custom designed gift baskets. Her flair for creating these baskets adds a unique feel to any occasion.
Frankie is a single mom and nine year resident of the Hill District. She has been a member of Ujamaa Collective since 2011. She also specializes in creating designs and displays for our organization’s events, including the fun 70’s Throwback Cabaret fundraiser, our annual Kwanzaa Celebrations and bi-monthly Word of Mouth Open Mic in the boutique.
Her many years of work with a catering company taught her the finer points of a good design and set-up. Gathering family and friends together is what makes it all worthwhile. Frankie says, “It’s true, when you love what you do, it’s not work!”
