these are the kinda pit stops i make...
who else loves thrifting?
most of y’all know that i am an avid thrifter and vintage lover, but what you might not know is that 98% of my wardrobe is in fact thrifted, vintage, handmade or secondhand. i don’t shop at chain stores, malls, online or at any big retail shops. i shop small, local and secondhand as often as possible in every area of my life but especially when it comes to clothing because #fastfashion is something i’m not about.
i started my vintage shop @folkling largely for this reason, to help spread the perspective and story of finding beauty in once-forgotten and cast-off things and to remind you, and myself, to think intentionally about what you’re buying and why you’re buying it. .
i’ve been getting some new ideas for the direction of @folkling on this trip as a matter of fact and i have to say i’m getting pretty excited about them. .
it feels like such a blessing, hell, it IS such a blessing that i get to incorporate so many of my passions and interests into making my living and creating my art here in this crazy wild world. but i couldn’t do it without all of you. feeling very grateful for the whole supportive and encouraging lot of you.
if i could take you each on a thrifting adventure i would. ;)
