Georgie’s mother says that she was changing clothes 3 or 4 times a day when she was 4 years old. By the time she was in middle school she was labeling clothing with dates to make sure she didn’t wear anything too often. Her first jobs were in shoe stores and clothing stores. After living a year in Paris her course seemed to be set.
Georgie has been in business for over thirty years on Marco Island. Opening the store at 23 years old with her now ex- husband, she has literally grown up in the business. Before she was 20 years old she had visited a few shoe factories and attended several shows around the country to assist others with buying.
Travel and adventure have always been a passion. “I especially love visiting more primitive cultures, seeing the handicrafts that they make and seeing the use of colors and textiles. It actually fits with what I do for a living always looking for something fresh and innovative.” Georgie’s other passions include art, biking, rowing and books, oh, and of course spending time with her children and grandchildren.
