Meet Kristina Thelen at Amuse: Modern Cottage Industry

As far as downtown merchants go, Kristina Thelen, the proud owner of Amuse: Modern Cottage Industry, is perhaps one of the most vivacious and outgoing.  Maybe it’s her laid-back native west coast persona shining through — she formerly lived in California and Washington —  or she’s happy most of the time simply because she enjoys the Ithaca community, her shop, and her customers.
