    Store

    What I offer in my store is a reflection of my lifestyle, one that is focused on planet friendly choices: invest in things that are useful, that last, that you love and that don’t harm the planet. In my store is an eclectic ever-evolving selection of favorites + one-of-a-kind finds and limited editions from my studio.

When Time magazine named me a new Green Pioneer in 2009, I had just launched my first online eco friendly general store in Los Angeles, and an online quarterly Almanac Newsletter about everything positive going on in the environment. I also authored the book LOLA Lots of Love Always, about how to live a sustainable lifestyle and make healthy choices that are good for you and the planet. Although targeted to young women, it ended up appealing to all age groups.

As my life and work evolved over the years, my dream was increasingly about living a simpler lifestyle closer to nature, hence my move to the Hudson Valley in Upstate New York, where I could still continue my work, have a much larger garden, woods to wander in and be the best steward I can be of the land I now call home.

Now, I have a new store: Priscilla-Woolworth-Store-Studio, which continues to reflect my lifestyle: acquiring things that are useful, made to last, and don’t harm the planet.

My “larger” garden became a mini organic farm, River’s Edge Farm, where I grow enough food that I am able to donate a portion to a food pantry called the Recovery Kitchen in Hudson, New York. I also sell wild foraged and grown produce to an organic community market in Philmont, New York.

The journey continues.
