Lucia Vanin-Agrusa, owner of Eclettica Decor, 245 Northampton Street, describes herself as having "an accent people like." She originally hails from Italy:
"I'm from Padua; it's close to Venice, and I got married in America, and then we had a house in Riegelsville together. We used to commute every weekend from New York to Pennsylvania. When we divorced, I was living there and he got the house here and I felt like I couldn't move my daughter so quickly from New York. The date was high school: when she started high school, we were going to move back to Pennsylvania to be closer to her father. It's better here. It's easier, safer, cheaper, you know, it doesn't cost you a fortune and the people are friendly."
"What made you decide to open up your store?"
"Easton! Easton is very close to Manhattan, there's a lot of hipsters here. I like the College and the community. I love it. It's almost like New York."
