A pidgin is a simplified form of communication; an informal language, often developed in trade, allowing those from different backgrounds to convey thoughts to one another. I like to think of the objects in my store, with their quiet presence and shared appeal, as both the medium and the message.
I am a poet and a collector, and neither pays the bills. I have made my living as a salesman throughout my adult life, and I share my heartfelt thanks with all of the amazing store owners and visionary merchants that I’ve worked with over the past 25 years. PIDGIN is part self-portrait and part love letter to all of you.
