I opened on April 10, 2021, and am finally living the dream that went unrealized for over 20 years. Lark Trading Co.
Design, curating, traveling the world and collecting special one-of-a-kind items was just a hobby for me. Some health issues and the pandemic opened my eyes to my true love and passion and I decided to open a retail outlet in my hometown and one of my favorite places in the U.S.A…Santa Ynez, California.
I was raised in Santa Ynez. I went to high school here and spent every summer working on my grandmother’s ranch and at her glue and crafting factory, best known for Aleene’s Tacky Glue. My grandma started the craft and hobby industry in the 40s. My family had the first DIY show on cable television (TNN) called ‘Creative Living.’
I have big plans for Lark on the community and for an online experience. From a curated book club that includes special vintage, antique, or worldly items that tie directly into the story for a full experience, to sanctuaries in a box for your home, as a gift, or who knows!
When you’re living the dream there are no limits to what you can accomplis.
Stay tuned, lots more to come!
