And just discovered a small business in Kansas that make 100% organic linen sheets, bedding — all sorts of things including for baby. Gorgeous.

Well moving on: more than a few DFs represented: Chanel, Hermes, Marc Cross, Gucci, Van Cleef & Arpels….all the great fashion houses…and jewelers…when they were actually great; when they were their own ateliers.
