Meet the Ladies of Phantastic Phinds: Chris

Welcome to a new series, where you get to meet the ladies of Phantastic Phinds one by one. We have compiled a list of questions that we often get from customers about who we are, how we came to work in this industry, and what we did before going vintage.

Eclectic. Lots of Asian and Nature influences mixed with a bit of Bucks County Country.
What does your home look like? A comfortable place with many rooms inside and out to take your shoes off, relax, converse, or play. It's a family home.

Hmmmm. I haven't found anything as of yet....will keep this in mind.
