have about twenty minutes?! please watch this short film to learn what actually goes on behind production, consumption, and beyond. there is so much we aren’t told as citizens. we were totally programmed to contribute to this viscious cycle. with this fresh take on it all, i anticipate that everyone take from this to lead a life that is thoughtful and compassionate about what/how/from who/where things are coming from and where they are going. thank you, alex, for bringing this to my attention!!

for the past 15 years i have been enamored with the things of the past. design, art, books, people, philosophies, fashion, decor, architecture, furniture, cartoons, film, toys, music, product packaging, you name it. i deeply admire how everything was so sleek and simple yet so abundant. resources were constructed with utmost quality and vibrancy before the days of outsourcing.
as a consequence to loving these fine crafted items before my time, i continue to come home with these one of a kind finds on a very regular basis. to resist these gems seems very unnatural to me. i feel that somehow i need to be apart of these beauties lives to continue the love they once had. to continue their story in a completely different setting than where and how these treasures lived before. i even fantasize about how their early lives were lived and with whom, where and when exactly.
in my years of collecting such goods i have had enough to fill up all the houses on my street. it is now (next month, exactly) that i share these valuables with you. my treasures range from paper goods to shoes, accessories for the home and body, and everything in between. most notably, the shoppe will feature choice clothing, books and toys for children.
following the launch of the shoppe i will also provide services as a personal shopper/stylist specializing in vintage finds for those of you that would like to add some va va voom to your wardrobe and your surroundings.
much more information will be available soon. if you have any questions before that, please send them my way. until then.
