Styled in Japan: parasols, vintage and antiques from Japan
Daughter of a dressmaker and fruit blocker, I was born and raised in the small country town, Loxton, South Australia. For the past twenty years I have lived and worked as an English teacher in Kansai prefecture, Japan. Most weekends you will find me searching for treasures at flea markets and shrine sales. On longer holidays, I indulge my passion for world travel.
At an age when many people are dreaming of retirement, I decided to start a small business. I invite you to accompany me on my journey of discovery as I share with you my photographs, stories and history of the treasures I find at markets: indigo dyed aizome fabrics, silks, traditional clothing, kimono handbags, fans, dolls, religious artefacts, wooden kashigata sweets moulds, the quirky and unusual treasures that catch my eye.
