Some of those exclusive
home products have a following. One line is called Olivina. It's a

small company in Napa Valley. We have women and men who come in and
buy this product four at a time. Once you've sampled it, you'll
understand why," Elam said. "Your skin feels wonderful."
Napa Home also offers an
exclusive line of porcelain china by American designer Marc
Another exclusive line of
functional art is by Michael Aram.

organic. And here we have some raw amethyst, jewels that are
