Geraldine James started her career in fashion as a contemporary designer buyer, and from fashion she moved to home and gift. Geraldine soon developed a passion for collecting and finding unusual and beautiful things – she can be found at a flea market most weekends. She was the home buying manager at Selfridges for many years and, as part of her role, spent time travelling extensively to find exciting new products for the store. She is the author of several books including #shelfie, Creative Homes, Flea Market Secrets and Creative Walls, all published by CICO Books. Geraldine is based in Putney, London, UK.
