"Woman Shops World is basically my personal candy land of creative supplies and inspiration that I share with the world. I offer goods that I use for my own creations — things that speak to me and inspire me. Sometimes when I am on a buying trip, I’ll see something that tugs at my soul – something so magical that it makes me feel all warm and flustered inside. Those are the items that make it to the pages of my shop. Color and pattern are my greatest inspirations, and a touch of mystery always entices me. I don’t have to know what an object is or what it is used for to love it. Sometimes inherent beauty is enough to win me over." – Carter

"I love old stories, fables and folklore. The albatross was long believed to carry the souls of sailors lost at sea, which is an appropriate description of the goods in my shop: sailors and lost souls. My pieces almost always have their own little story to tell: a small struggle, fierce joy or particular way they like to take their tea. I also see stories in the vintage goods I find. From industrial pieces that were once strong and mighty factory staples to soft, delicate finds that graced gentle parlors, they are instant storytellers." – Regina
