Whether you are looking for a gift for a girlfriend, something to spruce up your dining room table, or a cool new scarf or pair of tights, Isadora is THE place to go in the Valley. I sat down with Diane Jarmusz (owner and operator of Isadora) and chatted with her about her store.   What Inspired your store?
