One of the third generation owners, Kathy Rezny, gave me a tour recently of their beautiful shop, inspired by the chic boutiques in Milan, Italy. With a wide selection of stylish furs, shearlings, casual jackets, rain coats, cashmere garments, beautiful leather handbags & accessories, there is something here to fit every lifestyle and budget.
