Karen’s Collection

Karen is a semi-retired teacher who collected textiles and jewelry while working overseas and continues to travel to seek out hand-made, fair-trade items directly from the makers for her eclectic, varying collection which includes bags made from recycled Thai Hill Tribe clothing, hand-woven scarves, authentic vintage kimono, silverwork from Tibetan refugees in Nepal and Balinese, Thai, and Mexican artists, as well as elegant beaded jewelry made by Lydia right here in Gainesville.
