How would you best describe your style and the items you sell? Cottage White is an ever changing collection of romantic, one of a kind finds and vintage treasures mixed with traditional favorites to create a casual, coastal feel unlike any other. Absolutely the best collection of revitalized furniture, chandeliers, books, textiles, indigo fabrics, and timeless architectural pieces for your home and garden.
When was your first Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market? My first JITT was spring 2015 and coming back for the fall show, even though its my Birthday weekend!
And what is your favorite part about the event? Or a favorite memory? My favorite part of JITT is seeing all the talented vendors come together in one location to bring Scottsdale one of the best shows in the west.
What’s your favorite place to get away in the summer? I love spending time in California at my 2 other locations and my beach home in La Jolla. My other favorite summer time get away is in the mountains, Telluride & Aspen,Colorado.
