A Little About Us:
The Feather Place's was founded by a family that has been in the feather business for generations. The Feather Place can trace it's roots back three generations ago to "Grandpa John" and "Grandma Minnie" traveling throughout the United States in "Grandma's Hippy Bus" selling feathers and animal hides to fly fisherman from their van.
Third generation feather merchant, Abby Arauz developed a great passion for dance and theater in her youth. After college, she moved to New York to pursue her dream. Her aspirations led to a ten-year career as a Rockette, dancing at Radio City Music Hall and around the world. Abby's Rockette career opened new opportunities for the family business, as she assisted the Costume Department in the search for feathers. In her travels and theatrical work, she developed new ideas for the use of feathers that have made The Feather Place the most fashion-forward and cutting-edge vendor in the feather industry.
Abby's brother, Anthony Arauz, also a third generation feather merchant joined Abby in the Feather Place and started the e-commerce site www.featherplace.com with the goal of bringing feather fashion to the masses. Anthony's ability to speak mandarin chinese, spanish, and english give The Feather Place a unique ability to leverage a strong supply chain and bring the best quality feather items to customers.
The Arauz family opened The Feather Place NYC in 1998, in the heart of the Garment District. The Feather Place NYC provides a vast array of feathers for:
