Duchess Fare ("Duchess" for my married name Sarah Ferguson) grew out of my love for all things Lifestyle -- food, travel, people, design -- plus my passion for uncovering and highlighting vintage pieces & interesting one-of-a-kind decor.
I was raised in Fairfield County, CT, currently reside in the South, & in between the two, been fortunate to have lived in various parts of Southeast Asia. I am a Sweet Briar College graduate with a degree in Art History. Since moving to Atlanta in 1997, my job experiences are stitched together like a patchwork quilt.... Having worked for interior designer Meg Adams formerly of Pineapple House; cooking at the teeny tiny cafe, Souper Jenny; putting together flower arrangements at the loveliest of Buckhead shops, Pollen Flowers & Goods; working at an Atlanta based specialty food company for Smith Hanes at Bella Cucina Artful Food; and finally striking out on my own with my business, Girl Friday, part personal assistant, personal cook, personal shopper, and personal organizer for my wonderful clients.
I am pleased to be included as a contributing vendor to One Kings Lane's Vintage & Market Finds site. I carefully select a variety of period home furnishings and decorative objects perfect to round out the overall appeal of any room. My Duchess Fare page can be accessed here.... keep a look out for my items to be featured in their daily postings.
Additionally, you can find my vintage lighting offered through the Plaid Parasol, a home decor site featuring handpicked items from the editor of Romantic Homes magazine, Jacqueline DeMontravel.
