The weather is heating up just in time for the Summer Collection, which features gauze separates, colorful sleeveless tops, comfy soft knits and capris galore. Sundresses have arrived and there’s lots of bright color for the season. You’ll always find something new at The Barbara Friday Collection.
Barbara has a communication arts degree, but has spent most of her career in women’s retail fashion. She owned a successful boutique Barbara Friday’s, in Montgomery Village, Santa Rosa for 20 years.
The reinvention of that business resulted in the Barbara Friday Collection Season Fashions, targeted to the baby-boomer woman, and beyond. Since then, Barbara has been selling at pop-up shops throughout Northern California for years.
Barbara strongly believes in buying MADE IN THE USA. It supports domestic products, keeping skilled jobs in the US and reducing our environmental footprint. Currently over 60% of her collection is US made.

Nuna Wraps, those fabulous polar fleece ponchos, are back with new colors available. Keep one in the car for those unexpectedly cool evenings.
Spring capris, skimmers and bermudas are tastefully embellished with grommets and/or stones, ladder treatment, and cheerful colors.
Happily, Jess & Jane, our US made t-shirt line, has added some updated soft knit tops that are getting enthusiastic responses from our first clients to see them.
