MacKenzie-Childs is a manufacturer of ceramics and retailer of hand painted imported furniture based in Aurora, New York founded by Victoria and Richard MacKenzie-Childs. While in upstate New York, our host wanted to take the women in our group to visit the farm house at MacKenzie-Childs. She didn't think the men in our group would be interested in interior decor and fancy stuff. But I was - to her surprise. I told her I wanted to join them because I needed to channel my feminine side. Hah.
