Favorite stores include Danahy's on Sheridan Drive, Amherst; BOMI Jewelers on Main Street, Amherst; Everything Elmwood (Main St., Snyder, and Elmwood Avenue in the Elmwood Village) and clothing/home decor retailer Anthropologie .

Signature piece: Small, embellished handbags in fun designs from the Mary Frances collection. She owns quite a few including a guitar, champagne bottle in a bucket and wine bottle in a barrel.

She also paints her nails purple and green – Zenjoy's signature colors – when participating in craft shows and art festivals, including the recent Glen Park Art Festival in Williamsville.

Fashion statement: "When I go shopping I buy clothing to reflect my personality. So you gotta be unique, be funky and make it fun," she said.

Last purchase: Amethyst geode necklace by local jewelry designer Lynn Schwab, one of the other vendors at the Glen Park Art Festival.
