Our Story

Ginger Threads Collections online women's boutique

Have you ever met someone and immediately felt like you have known them your entire life?  That is exactly the story of the friendship behind Ginger Threads Collections. When we first met, we were working together, but in different countries.  An assignment sent us together to a warzone – making us battle buddies.

As battle buddies, we were together 24/7 for the duration of our trip.  We bonded – making each other laugh, even in the midst of bomb sirens, sickness and crazy people. It was the beginning of an incredible friendship! We have been by each other’s side through so much since then and always have one another to lean on.  

Together, we have explored so many amazing countries and found adventures in each day.  We love to embrace the cultures of other countries and soak in the traditions of the people.  We are both strangely very organized, free-spirits. We share a love for sustainable fashion, handmade jewelry and being different, and appreciate the fine quality from artisans and craftsmen across the globe. 

Last year we both decided to pack up our houses and make a fresh start – selling most of our belongings. We landed on separate coasts, one in Lake Tahoe and one in Washington DC. It was an opportunity to focus on happiness – not material things.  This is how the idea for Ginger Threads Collections was born. We want our online women's boutique to provide you with a timeless wardrobe to look effortlessly chic, giving you back time to focus on what is really important – enjoying life!

Our story has just begun...in June 2020, we added a retail location in South Lake Tahoe, California.  We hope to see you there.


Shayna - co-founder of Ginger Threads Collections online women's boutique

Shayna (as described by Bridget) - My best friend is the most beautiful, free-spirited, strong woman I know.  Sometimes she says something and I am just in awe of her courage. She is wicked smart with a side of sassy and knows exactly what she wants.  She isn’t afraid of being outside of the norm or going against the grain.

She is a committed and loving mom but has remained an individual outside of the role of “mama”.  I don’t think anything scares her. I love her so much and am so thankful that she came into my life. She will be there to support me and hug me when I cry but she is also there to kick my butt and make me stay strong. Together we can be free-spirits, roam new cities and enjoy the little things.  This and many other reasons is why she is the best friend I could ask for!  



Bridget (as described by Shayna) – No matter what curve-ball life throws at her, this amazing woman keeps her head up, powers through it, and looks put together while doing so. She has an uncanny ability to find the most beautiful, unique accessories from all ends of the Earth, which always go perfectly with her stylish outfits.

There is no one else that I would rather share this adventure with and I truly believe she’s a soulmate when it comes to best friends! I am so happy and excited that she’s decided to contribute her talents with the world. She’s super intelligent, a beautiful soul inside and out, sensible, and spontaneous, recognizing that it’s important to live life to the fullest – the true essence of a Ginger Threads Collections woman!
