maude rare finds in petaluma, ca
myrtle in los angeles, ca
i am, by nature, shy but that didn't stop me from meeting with some very special stores last year to show them the spring collection. i wore my black silk mina dress with some leather sandals and toted the clothes around in my bright orange suitcase. i answered questions, tried on the clothes for buyers and took orders. at the end of the day i'd picked up a total of 5 new stores i'm pretty excited about. this is a very old school approach to sales but one that even store owners prefer sometimes, i know that. it gives you a chance to get to know one another, look around the store, and even shop. if you're near any of these stores i strongly recommend you drop by. i approached them in the first place because they're well-edited, interesting and most importantly - friendly.
