In 1985, a New York movie executive began buying French and English antiques. When she moved to California, she added California pottery and Asian porcelain to the mix. The Emporium Ltd. was born out of that first collection. Her habits haven’t changed: She still buys only what she’d want for herself, and that includes the spectacular scarves, jewelry, and bags in this collection. "Always buy a piece you love."
