Hi There -
Let me introduce myself!
I am Stephanie; a first generation American, raised between Marin County, California and Alexandria, Egypt. In 1986, after seven years, a marriage, and a baby, my parents won the lottery. Not exactly mega millions, but the American Immigration lottery. Within two weeks they sold everything they owned, and moved across the world.
I started traveling back to Egypt at the age of six, which I guess you can attribute as the reason for my love of travel, and gypsy soul. My sister and I spent our summers on the beaches of Agamy, with friends and family, learning about a life my parents left behind.
I am a designer, love to travel and to entertain, and mostly I LOVE to eat. As an Egyptian, my family always gathers in the kitchen. It's where we do our best creating. Whether we are cooking, crafting, or entertaining -- our kitchen island has exponentially grown as our family has. All of these passions have led me to this small space on the internet to call my own. To showcase some of my favorite designs, and paper goods, and to share the beautiful crafts Egypt has to offer, I've opened a little shop.
[Egypsy = Egyptian + Gypsy] is a place for egyptian home decor featuring handmade artisan products from the Khan el Khalili and Khayameya, two major souks in the Islamic district of Cairo. The bazaar district is one of Cairo's main attractions for tourists and Egyptians alike. Thanks so much for stopping by!
