When Granny died at an old age after a long life, she left Leavern's things behind. Ofcourse, I kept some.
Others I knew were destined for new homes where they could be loved like new. So my Aunt Leavern became the source and inspiration for my Esty store. Although many of her clothes have launched this site, other new-old things will follow. Like my Aunt Leavern's things, they all have stories.
I hope you will be able to write their next chapter!
