I did not actually drive from New York myself, but, the trip is only about an hour from the city and a beautiful and worthwhile trip it is! We are talking about Loam, the super-chic, nestled-in-the-woods oasis of sumptuous handknit sweaters, industrial chic vintage goodies, one-of-a-kind gems, handmade baubles, original artwork and select vintage clothing (which, I admit, is partially provided by Carmen & Ginger!)
Carmen and Ginger is so grateful to have our merchandise so beautifully merchandised alongside all these wondrous objects! We just dropped off some gorgeous vintage sweaters, a few more holiday dresses, some funky winter hats and a number of great vintage coats, so, if you've looked before, check again!
