C. Madeleines is a luxury vintage consignment shop in North Miami, and is my heaven! They have all of the tools to let your inner drag queen loose, and boy did I. I love eccentric clothes and accessories…to me, the bigger, the better! Needless to say, I tried on feathers and fur galore…I don’t usually post photos of myself on this blog, but these pieces come to life on a body, and I was happy to oblige. 😉
I happened across this shop when walking near my hotel, and what a find! These are the kinds of shops I really cherish…full of traditional handmade products, items of days gone by. It does not have the ambience of the boutiques I highlighted in Sayulita, but there are little treasures to be found nonetheless. Also, I love to feel like I am discovering something special, it’s the hunter in me. 🙂 I bought a dress, handkerchief, and some small embroidered gifts…definitely could have bought more!

Last but not least, my favorite shop in Sayulita…Evoke the Spirit! A space so beautiful it looks more like a gallery than a shop, with beautifully designed & made products to match. And if you visit the shop, please be sure to say hi to Santos, the Huichol yarn painter in residence.
A very special thank you to Evoke the Spirit’s owner & designer Brittney Borjeson, who was so welcoming and helpful during my trip! You can see more about Brittney and her shop in Domino magazine!
