ever since we opened our doors twenty three years ago (and yes, we still feel that young on the inside), we have sought to provide a distinct retail experience. fresh out of architecture school, amy gardner founded scarpa in 1994 as a shoe store. her formal training coupled with her innate sense of form and function have remained the guiding principles for our expansion into apparel and accessories.  we choose items for their thoughtful craftsmanship, smart design, and timelessness. at scarpa, no piece is an afterthought.

of course, the goods on our shelves would mean nothing if we weren't able to share them with a community.  we love the relationships which continually give scarpa its vitality; its true and lasting meaning.

  

meet team scarpa

this multi-talented bunch works together to make your scarpa experience an unparalleled retail pleasure.
