WE ARE MOVING! We have started to move to 125 E. Main St. Barrington, IL 60010, where we will be opening a retail store in late November. Our inventory is currently split between two states, so some orders will be delayed, or be shipped in two shipments. Please have patience with us as we navigate through the chaos of an interstate move with a business and a household.
Here is my homage to Claire's first husband Frank from the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Frank is a brilliant historian who works for MI6 during the second world war. Frank accepts Claire when she comes back to him from 18th century Scotland pregnant by another man, and stays with her while they raise that child even though he cannot believe that Claire has actually traveled through time. There is a basic goodness about Frank even though he, like all the other Outlander characters, is far from perfect. Houndstooth is modeled on popular men's colognes in England from the 1950's, with Tobacco and spices. There is also a prominent note of Lavender which was both popular in the 50's and is also a callback to Frank's notorious ancestor Black Jack Randall.
