Hi! I’m Liz Geddes… but you can call me “Geddes.”
I dreamt up Octavia & Brown from my teeny apartment in San Francisco. But my love affair with vintage items started much earlier on the “other” coast, where I was born and raised!
As a teenager, I would wake up early on the weekends and scour for treasures at estate sales and annexes. My first big purchase was a black Navy steamer trunk with brass nail heads - it was huge and heavy, but I loved it!
Around that same time, I also worked part-time at a flower shop in the area. I still believe that flowers are the perfect accessory for any room-- That’s why you’ll see them show up in a lot of my photos.
A few things I believe in:
1. Great design can come from any era.
2. Everyone should…
