As many of you know, I recently went to England with my husband and son. My husband had been invited to speak at a conference on Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome so we made a family trip out of it.

Being the total boy that is into fast cars and trains, my son, Zachary, has always wanted to see the National Railway Museum in York. So, we started there. Then, we went down to London. And, of course, Zachary just had to find a specific hobby shop near the London Eye that sold Hornby trains, which you generally can’t find in the United States.

And, that is where our inspiration takes place — Marsh Street in London. I knew the moment we came through a tunnel walkway and stepped onto the street that it was full of energy. Food tents were scattered about with delectable smells from all around the world. The brick building and street took you back to a simpler time and place.

Across from the hobby shop was a place that totally intrigued me because of its name: Radio Days. Since I had a background of marketing in the broadcast industry with a passion for radio, I had to check it out.

What I expected was a place with old radios and records. What I found was a honey hole of inspiration for pet fashion from the retro days gone by. Watch the video to check it out. I hope it brings you the joy and inspiration it brought to me.
