HOW TO MAKE COFFEE & OTHER THINGS: IRONS
Born out of a conversation about things inherited, traditions, and rituals.

"We celebrated the items hidden away in our lives. An Indian wedding dress, a cherished pizzelle press with accompanying antique dress form a well-remembered grandmother, and an inherited set of vintage irons.....The items that, after you complete your Kondo method purge, you still hold onto. How do we honor these items, and when and how so we let them go?" —Amita Chawla Oddo
