What makes Elsie Green special is our people. We've got a few former corporate executives, a floral designer, a former interior designer,  a vintage collector, a teacher and a high school senior. But we're all shopkeepers at heart, manning the packing table, giving our signature brand of extraordinarily personal service in the shop, traveling the French countryside looking for pretty things, and playing with the merchandise all day.

Meet Terra, our Wholesale Manager and Photo Stylist. To know her is to love her! Terra's keen eye for styling brings our product to life and results in the beautiful imagery that you'll find on our site. She is an all around superhuman and keeps the shop gals smiling with treats that she so often generously bakes for the team. Read along to learn more about T and the top 10 things she can't live without.

Favorite travel destination you have visited?

Definitely France with Laurie in March of 2019. It was a trip of a lifetime! We shopped our way through France and I was truly in heaven.

Follow up question - what is a dream destination you would like to visit?

I would love to visit Scotland someday. I've watched Outlander for years and would love to see it all in person.

Daily uniform?

You'll typically find me in my favorite jeans, this white linen shirt and either converse or my Freda Salvador mules.

Do you have a favorite cookbook?

Do I have to choose just one? These are my top 3 favorites that I continually reach for: The Cook's Atelier, Canelle Vanille and Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa.

Beauty tip that you think every girl should know?

Treat yourself to a monthly facial if you can! Your mind (it is so relaxing) and skin will thank you.
