My old life...I worked for 22 years in N.Y.C.merchandising pioneering and putting key companies on the map...Back in the eighties I implemented the first Jr. shop concept in Macy's Herald square... yes you can call me an ex garmento, workaholic traveling near and far... That was my life then....boy have things changed! later in life I was given two gifts Dante and Olivia. My son Dante has prader Willi syndrome so I decided to get out of the rat race, move to the country and raise my children in the middle of nowhere. I own a little shop in the DOWNTOWN historic DISTRICT called Verbena... Nested Treasures .. The old Opera house..TRULY A MAGICAL SPACE.
