Susannah came by my studio last year wearing an awesome large brimmed hat and told me about Freda, the new shop she opened in Marfa, TX. I’ve always wanted to visit Marfa and then she told me about all of the hot springs in the region – sold! A special piece of trivia: there is only one perfume brand sold in all of Marfa, and it’s MCMC at Freda. 

Name: Susannah Lipsey

Occupation: Shop Owner, Freda

Hometown: Bryan, TX

Where do you currently reside?: Marfa, TX

Favorite MCMC fragrance: I can’t choose just one! Dude No. 1, HUNTER, and NOBLE.

When did you first start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: I started wearing perfume when I was in Junior High. I think it was Happy by Clinique and then Calvin Klein’s CK1. Mall purchases – yikes!

If you were a plant, what would you be?: These days, probably a yucca.

What’s in your refrigerator right now?: Marfa Maid goat cheese, avocados, eggs, and Oregon Chai latte

Three words that describe you: Honest, expressive, perceptive

    this is kind of curious in the best way. i haven’t been on your blog in a long while. today, after the mention on design*sponge, i came over and saw the latest post about a shop in l.a. called myrtle. and i thought to myself, “cool, that was my maternal grandmother’s name.” and then i scroll down to another recent shop mention in marfa called freda… my mom’s name. neither name is particularly common so i thought it was worth sharing. i love that kind of stuff!
