Old clothes, poetry, music and the beauty of the natural world inspire me to be present and yet transcend time at the same time. Every day in each moment we have the opportunity to create magic in myriad ways and for me clothing is such a deep part of that. What character do I feel today? What am I going to make and give to the world? An outfit in itself can be a work of art...I guess that is what is meant by style...how we collage together clothes out of how we feel emotionally and physically. It is magic really, the creation of a beautiful illusion that we present to the world that affects those around us. The ability to create is one of the greatest gifts we have as human beings, so in my small way I hope by offering wonderful clothes and old goods I can inspire those who come across my shop to dream their dreams and create their own magic.

  1. I have to say, you somehow strike me as so unamerican in a way. Do you have some genes from europe or maybe russia?

  3. My mother, Solveig, is from northern Sweden, near the Artic Circle. As a small child my bedroom was her sewing room. She was an amazing designer and her clients would bring fabrics from around the world. Never used a pattern. Latter she owned a luxurious yarn shop. She's amazing with her knitting skills as well. She now lives in Lincoln, CA. and still creates.
