I've spent countless hours scouring the marketplace for exceptional products (and the designers who create them!) for a broad range of national magazines, including Country Living and Esquire, and I've found that what catches my eye and inspires me more than anything else, is the creativity and high level of quality being produced right here in America, especially when it comes to handmade and small-batch items. The American Made movement is gaining momentum every day, and I'm honored to share my finds, and the stories behind them, with you. In addition to product reviews and designer/artist/buyer Q&As, you can expect shop tours, mini travel guides by influential Americans, antique fair coverage, travel photos, and snippets of my life in the Hudson Valley, where I live with my husband Ross and our two-year-old son Theo. Thanks so much for stopping by!
