As a child, I adored dressing up with my Gran's accessories! At seven, she taught me how to spot vintage, thrift and negotiate at flea markets. During my teenage years, I did just that, and fell in love with 1920s - 60s fashions. In 1998, I was recruited by Dayton's Department Store to serve at the Minneapolis flagship, which was later acquired by Marshall Field's (of Mr. Selfridge fame). There, I learned the ins and outs of luxury retail: extraordinary customer service, merchandising and display.
When we were sold to Macy's, I migrated to Los Angeles. Just blocks away from Paramount Pictures, I worked for Hollywood's iconic Studio Wardrobe Department. There, I handled props and "b wardrobe" sales, learned to window dress and met many captivating people. Returning home at the end of the season, I accepted an offer from Neiman Marcus; when that too closed, I joined Banana Republic. When the pandemic permanently padlocked our 20+ year location, I decided to begin a new chapter
and opened my own online vintage boutique.
