Old clothes, poetry, music and the beauty of the natural world inspire me to be present and yet transcend time at the same time. Every day in each moment we have the opportunity to create magic in myriad ways and for me clothing is such a deep part of that. What character do I feel today? What am I going to make and give to the world? An outfit in itself can be a work of art...I guess that is what is meant by style...how we collage together clothes out of how we feel emotionally and physically. It is magic really, the creation of a beautiful illusion that we present to the world that affects those around us. The ability to create is one of the greatest gifts we have as human beings, so in my small way I hope by offering wonderful clothes and old goods I can inspire those who come across my shop to dream their dreams and create their own magic.

Linda Perhacs

I got turned on to Linda Perhacs while driving in the car with my friend, the amazing singer/musician/songwriter Paula Frazer (check her out as well, the most amazing voice you will ever hear!) and I was completely blown away by her song writing and voice. It reminded me of a stranger almost more pure Joni Mitchell and definitely with a weirder vibe as well, which is always a plus for me~Anyhoo, I hope the weekend treats everyone with kindness and a dose of magic!

My New Album~ the Diary of Ic Explura: Daughter of the Flood

For the last 10 years I have been working on a project called The Diary of Ic Explura. It started with a story book I wrote first called A Love Letter to the Transformer: the Diary of Ic Explura which is a fantasy piece told through letters, drawings, painting, collage, photos, poetry and prose. After I had finished that I decided to put the whole piece to music and 5 years ago I put out Part One which is Title A Love Letter to the Transformer, which I recorded with a friend of mine Josh Klinghoffer. Since then I have been busy with so many different other things I had a hard time getting back to the project to finish Part Two, but over the last year and a half I recorded Part Two with my boyfriend Max Davies and guest musicians Pete Newsom, Hagan Caldwell and Roberta Davies. It is now available for sale on my Bandcamp page! Yay!!
