Gypsy's Apothecary


The Beginning...
I sailed my 30' sailboat named Jeito,through the Bahamas to the Dominican Republic, paid the harbor and permit fees gathering that I had 5 lbs of beans and 4 lbs of rice left in my pocketbook. Gypsy's Apothecary was born out of a need to fix my broken vessel and survive. Since that day in 2003, I've traveled and sailed thousands of miles picking up odd jobs, meeting odd people and bartering my skills and hand made goods. Some things have changed since those days in the Luperon harbor... but the gypsy remains.
