THE PERISH TRUST
The Perish Trust is a modern day general store established in 2008 by photo art director, Rod Hipskind and commercial photographer, Kelly Ishikawa with a passion to diligently collect, craft and curate the best well worn homegoods and the most unique, local handiwork. With a mix of the patinated old and the curious new we strive to cultivate and promote our mutual and authentic California Heritage. The effort is a textured gathering of home, hearth and old fashioned hospitality.
