Much as I loved seeing my friends’ sweet faces in the woods behind my house, pesky practicalities like weather and parking intervened. Since shuttering A World Away, I’ve been selling at various markets and venues, and I’ve cherished that direct interaction too. But my seasons of shlepping are over, and I’m shifting my venue to cyberspace. I’ll be offering up the objects of integrity you’ve come to expect from me: souvenirs from far-away places; and treasures unearthed from the mountain of bins stacked high inside my back-yard barn.
I have such abundance, and I want to share the things I’ve joyfully collected with you. Rest assured that everything you receive from me will be authentic, and accompanied by love and gratitude.
To everything there is a season, and A World Away’s has passed.
I have enduring gratitude for everyone, especially Sweet Olive Farm.
Enjoy these images…
Come On In!

This sign hangs in Kiosk, an interesting shop in Soho, NYC. It expresses my wish for A World Away.

Sunlight, and pathlight made by James from felled cedar and poulty feeder, illuminates A World Away.
Dale and Todd sell antiques and their Veribest Farm produce and flowers at our market. Here she gives love to one of the many pines that tower over my Once-in-a-While Shop, where you can find everything from American country furniture to back copies of Yellow Silk. There are baskets and brocade, vintage clothing, crafts from Nicaragua and Tunisia, toys and textiles, silver, antiques, art, and jewelry… Open during A World Away, and by appointment. Please come!
Thanks to Peter Loose and John Gingerich for sharing their pics, many of which appear here.
