The name says it all…
Kristen Owner, Designer, Customer Service
While my formal education is in Modern Languages, I am an ongoing student of the world around me. Color, shape, design, relationship, rhythm…are all captivating and cause my mind to whirl in imagination, inspiring many of our handmade items. Through our Vintage collection we discover and celebrate stories of the past of social history and culture.
