A Chat with Linnie Drew

Trinkets Galore at the Fairfax Flea Market!

Trinkets Galore at the Fairfax Flea Market!

Flea Markets!!!!  Los Angeles is full of them!  Not only are the packed with clothing, furniture, and kitschy gift ideas, but also my favourite….body products!  At the Fairfax Flea Market, many of the body products are organic, and smell divine.

I meet at least one person I feel as though I’ve met before (whenever I go anywhere,) and this time it was Lyntoya Williamson of the lifestyle and organic brand, Linnie Drew.  Not only is this woman gorgeous, but the sentiment behind her organic fragrant Shea butter products is just the sweetest.  Her whole line is dedicated to her grandmother.

Lyntoya and I hit it off right away and started obsessing over her deliciously fragranced shea butter creations in these beautifully packaged pots of yum.  I love that her line does not test on animals, and is purely shea butter and essences.  I am particularly obsessed with the Indian Temple Bliss butter and fragrance roll on, as well as the Mediterranean Wind butter.  And how fantastic is her packaging???!!


The best thing about flea markets is finding out information and treasures you might not have known before.  One woman can inspire a whole lifestyle line!  I love my new products, and am thankful for the opportunity to meet such a strong, gorgeous, and kind woman!

Oh!  And in Los Angeles, it feels as though everyone has a pet, and it is fun to see them on “parade” at the market. I especially liked this guy…

So cute!
