Want to know a bit about Paisley + Sparrow and me? I'd love to share!!

Paisley + Sparrow exists to bring you the best of the best products that are making a difference. I want to to find amazing companies like iSanctuary, Raven + Lily, Miriam Designs, Imagine Goods, and more and pick out the best pieces from their collection into a curated collection of pieces that are are all making a difference in a world.

God gave me the dream for P+S while spending 11 months abroad on the a mission trip called the World Race. Two of the places that impacted me the most was a school in Uganda that helped give an education and vocational skills to girls who had been abducted by the LRA and unable to finish their schooling and an organization in Thailand called SHE that helped women who had been trafficked by giving them a place to live, counseling, and training for jobs. In both situations, the women made jewelry and sold it to help keep the school and SHE running.

When I got home I knew I wanted to do something to help. It wasn't easy but after months of research, years of planning and a swift kick in the butt from a loving and supportive family, I launched Paisley + Sparrow.

It has, and will be, a work in progress. Mistakes have been made, lessons have been learned and I'm constantly trying to adapt and change to make this shop a better place for you. I want Paisley + Sparrow to be a spot that you can go whenever you need a birthday gift, a perfect necklace for a new dress, your bridesmaids jewelry or simply a fun new piece for yourself!

I want you know that each piece is carefully selected from hundreds of others to bring you the best pieces of the best brands in the ethical fashion industry. Each of the pieces in my shop have a story. Each piece is making a difference. And by choosing to purchase these items, you are making a difference too!

Here's a little bit about me:

I'm a newlywed - married to my handsome husband, Rishi. We met at work (I quit and a few months later we started dating...contrary to popular belief). We recently bought a home in South Minneapolis and I am loving decorating it and making it ours!

I love to run! I started my life as a sprinter and somehow got into distance running (I blame my mother) and had the honor of running the Boston Marathon in 2014. I now stick with 5ks to half marathons. :)

I'm not a huge fan of cooking. I'm getting better at it which is making it more enjoyable but it's not my favorite. If I could live off of coffee and chocolate chips I would be one happy woman.

i love you more than coffee

I absolutely love organizing homes and removing clutter. This may have something to do with the insane amount of moving around I've done as an adult but a freshly organized closet is almost as amazing as a fresh cup of coffee.

I love to travel and have a goal to visit all 7 continents all 50 states. I only have one continent to go but way too many states! This photo is from a trip to Spain I was on with my husband.

So that's a bit about me, Paisley + Sparrow and how all this got started. My hope and prayer is that we will become fast friends and that we will all continue to encourage, inspire and make a difference in this world.Have any questions??
