These things make me happy, however simple or complex ; the layers of romance in nostalgia.

My style and taste is influenced by the tradesmen and women of the early 20th century. The modesty and practicality in their dress and in their craft.

I'm also strongly inspired by the rock and folk culture of the 1960's and 70's, not only for the music and poetry, but for the expression of individuality and rebellious freedom.

I've been collecting vintage clothes and little treasures for as long as i can remember. Its a dream of mine to have a shop like this, and to spend my working days doing the thing i truly love and sharing the things i find beautiful.

Thanks for Visiting and......... FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!
