ABOUT US

It started with a set of postcards. Andrea Knies and Mimi Cirbusova are Co-Owners and Co-Founders of Compass Rose History Experiences. Shortly after meeting in 2015, Mimi overheard Andrea talking about Charles Ringling (which she is often known to do). She decided to give Andrea a set of vintage Ringling Brothers postcards for her birthday. A friendship blossomed. Their mutual love of Sarasota-Manatee area and its rich history inspired them to share their knowledge and passion with the world — not just their friends at happy hour. Both women serve their community in various history-related volunteer roles, and are known to “fall down the rabbit hole” of historical research. Both have tattoos related to Sarasota. Both are known to talk about dead people as if they were alive.
