Roni sent us an email explaining the methods she uses to collect her inventory. "I am one woman 'shopping the globe' and then sharing my finds and passions through my website. The travel I do by myself, with little more than a plane ticket and a rough itinerary."
"The Loaded Trunk features collections and treasures that I have hunted for – and personally hauled around in overweight suitcases – during many lifetime jaunts all over the world. Everything on the site has been purchased by me directly from the country, village, co-op or artist who made it – every bead, textile, ceramic, etc."
Textiles range in price from $100 to $400; rugs cost anywhere from $900 to $1,500; and housewares start at $25. Definitely check out the selection of Suzanis, Mexican bedspreads, and Herki rugs from Turkey.
