Announcement   Welcome to our virtual Caravan! We have been selling and buying for over 30 years thanks to you--my buyers and later e-friends! We offer high-end items at low-end prices and only sell what we love. Our wares come mostly from our personal collection, two eclectic/curiosity boutique shops we owned on two different continents, and also from the estates of select bohemian friends and family.

We offer an eclectic array of goods--from antique & vintage collectibles to vintage brand-name clothing & accessories. Browsing through our store you will stumble upon rare books, unique vintage clothing, estate antiques and jewelry, tribal clothing, Oriental rugs, kilims, ethnic textiles and artifacts, vintage and antique religious artifacts, goth/gypsy/SCA vintage style clothing and much much more. We love material possessions , but, as Buddhists, we practice 'letting go' to remind us of the impermanence of material being.

Many of our treasures were collected while criss-crossing the world as Harvard Graduate anthroplogists, while living with semi-nomadic tribes and in search of indigenous culture. We 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, as well as the villages of Romani Gypsies in Eastern and Western Europe. Many of our items come with magical stories. We believe in 'magical realism' and synchronicities and spiritual energies. If an object has a story to tell, I will share it with you and always feel free to ask. And, as always, we bless our treasures with love, positivity, and gratitude.

We also find beauty in semi 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 15 years ago that bell bottoms will make such a sweeping come back?! (I can't live without them...:) 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.
Peace, Love & Namaste, Lila

For the price I paid the item should have been as described. It was not. It was dirty and had a hole the size of a quarter in it. Dissatisfied customerj

About

"Dreams are the subtle dower that make us rich an hour..."

Welcome to our virtual Caravan! We are a couple of academics, who are also nomads & have been selling and buying online for over 17 years thanks to you--our buyers and e-friends! We offer high-end items at low-end prices and only sell what we love. Our wares come mostly from our personal collection but also from 2 curiosity eclectic visionary boutiques that we ran, on 2 different continents in a span of 33 years, as well as the estates of select bohemian friends.

We offer an eclectic array of goods--from antique & vintage collectibles to brand-name vintage clothing & accessories. Browsing through our store you will stumble upon rare books, unique vintage clothing and jewelry, estate antiques and jewelry, tribal textiles, antique & vintage religious artifacts, as well as goth/gypsy/SCA style vintage clothing. We love our objects, but, as Buddhists, practice 'letting go' to remind us of the impermanence of material being. We also sell Tibetan and Buddhist vintage and antique artifacts from my presonal collection as well as Buddhist objects acquired by Buddhist friends who ventured into Tibet and Nepal decades before either place was as open to the public as it is now.
Many of our treasures were collected while criss-crossing the world in search of indigenous culture, as cultural anthropologists and graduates of Harvard University. We 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, the villages of Romani Gypsies in Eastern and Western Europe and gentle Buddhist villagers on the roof of the world: the Himalayas. Our coming adventures this year will include Mongolia and Uzbekistan and we hope to find treasures there, in the back roads yet unexplored, to share with you. Many of our items come with magical stories. We believe in magical realism and synchronicities and spiritual energies. If an object has a story to tell, we will often share it with you and always feel free to ask. And, as always, we bless our treasures with love, positivity, and gratitude.

We also find beauty in semi modern/vintage fashions of no more than 20 years, 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 15 years ago that bell bottoms will be 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. Namaste!! EcelecticColllage
