Below are some of my favorites of the newest arrivals to Robuck.  Each item is linked directly to our website for more images and tear sheets. We also have a shipment arriving to port on December 8th.  The shop will be overflowing with goods from Italy, France and the Netherlands upon our return!  I can’t wait to unwrap it all… let us know if you have are looking for anything specific. 

Kindest Regards,
Kristen
 
p.s.  Jeanie Sears will keep the shop open while we are traveling.  She is Doug’s mom and we adore her.  Stop by and say hello if you are in the neighborhood!
