What sort of goods do you stock in your beautifully shared space with Busy Being?
I have clothing, jewelry + accessories, home and paper goods…really just things I love! Everything is small label and I am especially partial to collections that have an ethical mission and use organic or sustainable materials.
Is there a story behind the name Solid Gold?
There is, but it’s kinda long. The short version is that my mission when I opened was to carry clothing that is timeless, rooted in quality of design and fabrication, not driven by trends. Basically, those pieces that are your go to favorites year after year. Solid Pieces that stand the test of time (and over 8 years later, I hear every day from customers that their all time favorite pieces are from Solid Gold…mission accomplished). So there was the Solid. And I grew up in the 80’s. So there’s the Gold.
What is your favorite thing in your shop right now?
Oy that’s hard! I have a line from France that is designed by two best friends who wanted to recreate their favorite pieces from the 60’s and 70’s and it is all so perfect! Beautiful Indian block print tops, dresses and skirts. Amazing crochet and lace maxi dresses. Basically my hippie high school wardrobe updated to fit better and fee l like a dream come true.
