The idea for Collaborations came to me around 2003 after I really started crafting and sewing again. The concept of the store was to create a combination of mostly new clothing items but to also mix in some vintage clothing, chachkies, re-purposed handmade items, jewelry, and other retro cool items hand selected to indulge nostalgia. Only weeks after moving back home to Stillwater, Minnesota in 2005 the perfect location became available. The stars had aligned and I had my chance. With the help of a carpenter & good friend, we salvaged old barn wood, old doors, windows, and re-purposed vintage items. It was this combination that created the look and atmosphere I was after. The boutique opened in May of 2006.
