I met Tammy Borque
at the 2007 Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair. She had a booth set
up near my retail t-shirt shop, selling her fine hand dyed
garments. After sharing a bagel, a parking spot and an easy
flowing conversation over the 4 days of the art fair, we
hit upon the idea of carrying her goods in my retail store.
Her major mode
of business was selling her goods at fairs and festivals
and she wanted to expand her line into retail stores. I
on the other hand have been in the retail business over
30 years and knew my t-shirt shop, Elmo's Liberty St T-Shirts
needed the boost that her products could give. I was impressed
by the optimism and energy Tammy showed as she offered to
fill my store with her beautiful clothing.
was exquisite and distinctive. These two words describe
the kind of quality and artistry of Tammy's clothing. Under
the label "Brightly Twisted" she has tops and
bottoms to rival .
