Years ago I was lucky enough to get a scholarship to design school. Woo hoo!
Did I take it? Nope..I decided to just charge full steam ahead opening my first store and jumping right in the business world. After several furniture shows in the Shabby/Industrial Chic space I decided it was time to open a brick and mortar store. I started with just cash, no line of credit, or even a revolving credit card. I figured if I can build a business from scratch using a cash on hand only method, I would be able to teach others about it in the future, and that is exactly what happened!

I will also be offering some fun wine items on the site as I travel and find unique gifts. These are limited items, so get them while you can.
Oh, and about the store name. I once lived in my favorite place in all the USA, Yountville, California, in the beautiful Napa Valley. I still visit there as much as I can to see my friends and I miss it immediately after I leave. I get lots of inspiration there, and if you ever walk by the only house with the front porch and amazing landscaping, just a bit past the famous French Laundry, that is where you might find me. All the money or connections in the world cannot get you a seat drinking wine on that porch..but if I ever meet you, ask me for an invitation. If you have ever spend time in Yountville you know this porch. I know a lot of fun, non touristy things to do there, so if you ever go, let me know. I can give you some inside info.
