Global Goods

Every time I return from a trip I entertain the fantasy of traveling around the world, buying treasures and then selling them back home. I love opening my suitcase to an explosion of colors and textures - all prized purchases from the trip. My only wish every time is that I'd bought more.

Baba Souk and Proud Mary are two small businesses where my dream of travel treasures is a reality - except instead of stuffing suitcases, each of the shop's proprietors are in close relationships with local artisans, so their offerings are top quality and so unique.

Here are a few of my favorites from their online stores:
Bracelet Trio from Baba Souk

Clutch from Proud Mary
Tote from Proud Mary

Amazing pillows from Baba Souk
Huarache Sandals from Proud Mary
Patterned pillow from Proud Mary
Towel from Proud Mary

Little baskets from Baba Souk
