A photo essay... the highlights of a garment district trip or two... or three, maybe?

There's more to these stories.  Go to my Insta for more...

Speakeasy maps - updated and improved - and... what does the future hold?


The word "Speakeasy" is truer now, than it has ever been.

I have created a new, late/post pandemic speakeasy map, that I will continue to update as time goes on.  It lists businesses with a brick-and-mortar presence in the district, as well as those who also offer a great online sales experience. 

As the district changes, so does the blog, and the maps!  I've been chronicling how it has all changed over time, and I am still to doing just that!

There have been many speakeasy map updates.  I've been going through, refreshing descriptions of stores, deleting and adding as the landscape continues to change. 

Remember that it is always possible to do the equivalent of a speakeasy tour yourself, on your own schedule!  I can help you narrow down your list if you want to fit it all into a certain timeframe. Just ask me!

A lumpy, bumpy, comfy Cotonacocoon


A zero waste shirt.

Unless you include time.

We can laugh. Why not?
