Welcome to my virtual Caravan! I have been selling and buying for over 30 years thanks to you--our buyers and sellers e-friends! We now buy more than we sell, but when we sell; I offer high-end items at low-end prices and only sell what we love. My wares come mostly from my personal collection but also from the estates of select bohemian friends and now items we also create.

I offer an eclectic array of goods--from antique & vintage collectibles to vintage brand-name clothing & accessories. Browsing through our store you might stumble upon rare books, unique vintage clothing, estate antiques and jewelry, tribal textiles, religious artifacts, and goth/gypsy/SCA vintage clothing and select handmade items we design and make. I love my carefully selected material possesions, but, as Buddhist, practice 'letting go' to remind us of the impermanence of material being…

Many of my treasures were collected while criss-crossing the world in search of indigenous culture. I have shared company with semi-nomadic tribes from the steppes of Central Asia and Turkey to the deserts of the Middle East and North Africa, the jungles of Central America and the jungles and mountain tops of South America, and the villages of Romani Gypsies in Eastern and Western Europe. Many of our items come with magical stories. I believe in magical realism and synchronicities and spiritual energies. If an object has a story to tell, I will share it with you. And, as always, bless our treasures with love, positivity, and gratitude.

I also find beauty in modern fashions, even those that may be considered Kitsch or mundane or 'square'. But as many women and all fashion connoisseurs know...what's past is prologue. Who would have ever thought a mere 12 years ago, that those 1970's bell bottom, pants making a sweeping come back?! Such is a testament that every decade has its beauty and absolute expression captured in its own Space/Time & yet cannot be emulated again...but has served as the inevitable artistic evolutionary link to the expression of current and future fashions and styles.
