Stefani and Julie were born in Winter Haven, Florida. They also have a brother, Ty, who is the proprietor of Kofe, a coffee house across the street from Inkwood in Tampa. Growing up, Julie and Stefani shared a room, toys and even a Volkswagen Beetle. So it is probably fate that led them both to own bookstores and share careers (even though Stefani was first…ha,ha)
