Shopping Overseas

Lori is a star wherever she goes!

Lori loves to source the most unique and beautiful pieces for her very particular clientele, but it isn’t always easy! Sometimes she finds the most fragile, or hardest to move pieces in the first place,  add the element of getting them prepped for a freighter, next a cruise from somewhere in Europe to the port of Houston and let’s just say the stakes can be pretty high. Before I worked with her, Lori and I were just friends, well, best friends. I never understood why everything was always so difficult, until my first shopping trip with her about 7 years ago. She transforms from an East Texas debutant into a shopping machine. She is willing to go anywhere, and see anything for ”the find”. She is up at 5AM so that she is the first at the outdoor markets and sometimes isn’t home until well after our carriage has turned into a pumpkin. But through it all she manages to stay starry-eyed and filled with wonder. She truly loves what she is doing. Anytime you want something specific, do not hesitate to reach out and ask to be added to the wish list, she will find whatever it is you are looking for, one way or another!
