Sara grew up in Chico, California. She started working in the family business (Nantucket Home) at a young age. She learned the family business, learned to save and learned to travel with her savings. After high school she left Chico to live in Italy and travel throughout Europe. It was here that her love for food, coffee, language and culture flourished. Upon returning, she attended Chico State, met her future husband, John (who was also intrigued with traveling), graduated with a degree in English Literature and Italian and left Chico with him to live and work in Torino, Italy. Sara currently is the ‘shopkeeper’ at Nantucket Home. She spends her time away from work playing with her children, dogs, and husband. And whenever she can find spare time she enjoys reading her favorite blogs on everything from design to food to lifestyle.
