We grew up in Nevada City, California at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains, the ancestral homelands of the Nisenan peoples. We found each other at the age 5 and have been inseparable since, weaving in and out of creative endeavors along the way.
Our dear friend Jen Sheffield Weil first opened Kitkitdizzi, with the help of our other friend Nikiya Schwarz, at the top of Broad St in 2012. Shortly after opening, Kira was coaxed into bringing her vintage curating prowess to the shop while Carrie took up residency in the back of the shop for an event planning design project. Some time later, through a series of fortuitous events, we had the opportunity to purchase Kitkitdizzi from Jen and the rest is history.
Three moves and many moons later, Kitkitdizzi continues on as our creative offering back to this town we know and love. We have vowed to sell only what we love: salt of the earth, ethically-sourced, artisan-constructed excellence.
We are eternally grateful to this land, to the countless artists and makers who entrust us with their goods, and to the community, near and far, that sustains us.
