My first conversation with Martha was on Facebook in 2012.  I friended her, even though she lived on the west coast.  She messaged me and said, “Well, I don't live by you and we'll probably never meet but we like the same things, so OK! “.  She accepted my friend request. We would chit-chat periodically and like the same things on Facebook.

In 2014 I got a message that said, “Guess what? I'm moving to Chicago, maybe we will meet!"  The rest is history.

Since 1999 Martha has been working with fashion designers and design teams in NY, LA and Paris in concept for product development. She has a huge collection of on trend vintage clothing and accessories. New to selling at vintage shows, her forte is styling women with pieces to wear to work or any special occasion that are vintage yet look as though you would see them on a rack today.  She knows fashion AND vintage.  It's a great combo.  Don't miss her March 1/2
