We admit it, we’re an eclectic trio. One thing we have in common is our passion for arts and all things creative.
Dustmuffin consists of Diana Jacobs, an artist hailing from New York, Kerry Vitello, a designer originally from Boston and James Clark, an actor who transplanted to Los Angeles via London.
While we enjoy buying and sourcing for your shopping and gifting pleasure, the vintage and antique items are our favorite treasures to hunt. We also adore local artists (shop local!) and dig getting to know them personally. Our perfect day at the store is one where we met new customers, and see our old friends and neighbors from the ‘hood' when they stop in to see what our newest finds are or to peruse our selection for that housewarming or birthday party coming up.
When she isn’t traveling around the world playing Petanque for the US Women’s Team, Diana keeps herself busy with taxidermy and also volunteers at the National History Museum. If asked what her favorite must-have is from the store, she’d say the JUAN SIGALA EARRINGS and Coccetti tote bags.
A dog-lover and artist, Kerry Vitiello is our ray of sunshine (MOST OF THE TIME HAHA) at Dustmuffin. Besides having her own four-legged babies, Kerry has fostered pets over the years and works with local charities to raise money and awareness for our furry BFFs. P.S. don’t ever ask her to part with her Viv & Ingrid Confetti earrings or her Favorite WOODFIRE CANDLES!
James, who cannot live without his Lucky Tiger Face Wash nor his Mistral soap, is a film and stage actor who has also lent his voice to several commercials. When you’re visiting the store, make sure to ask him for the inside scoop on certain products - he’s great at helping customers to personalize their selection and can help you find something unique for that person who’s “hard to shop for."
Most importantly: We love parties, we love local artists and we love WINE! Make sure to follow us on Facebook or Instagram (@dustmuffinsilverlake) to stay up-to-date on our Artist Receptions and Wine Tastings or sign up for our newsletter (WHEN KERRY GETS AROUND TO WRITING IT) for special “insider” discounts.
We’ll see you at the store!
