:: Meet the Importer ::

Dakota Arkin Cafourek, the redhead, is a native of Amagansett’s salty shores of the East End of Long Island. Ever a traveler and always an adventurer, Dakota is a freelance writer combining her love for storytelling, scouting, and when she can, getting her hands dirty refurbishing her finds. She fell in love with the Midwest through her Minnesota-born, Missouri-raised husband and hence the Missouri Import Company came to be to share the treasures of handmade Americana with the world beyond—oft by way of driving them cross-country to her home turf.
