Get to Know
Hello! My name is Johanna, I am a poor grad student in Boston and this shop has two branches. First, I am acquiring a wealth of vintage treasures as my family tries to clear out their houses. Many of the belongings come from my Slovak grandmother who was a seamstress in New Jersey. She had a lot of great clothes that she sewed herself and a lot of costume jewelry! Then I also got some great stuff from my other grandmother who I never knew but who was quite the world traveler and left behind a treasure trove of international souvenirs from the 50s and 60s. Second, I am a watercolor artist, especially of cupcakes and other delicious things. I started learning watercolor about 8 years ago after spending my life sketching and wanting to learn how to use color better. After sharing many of my paintings with my family, I'd like to share them with a wider audience. I am selling some original artwork, prints and other products.
