i found these vintage bank money bags on my cross country road trip in South Dakota and i plan to use them for my #zerowaste bulk grocery shopping! (don’t worry, they’ve been thoroughly washed 😆)
.
.
being zero waste on the road is a little harder than it is when you’re stationary. you don’t have your normal places that you’re used to shopping, you’re not in much of a routine, there are a lot more temptations for “convenience” and you have more limited space to store your food. but it’s a challenge i enjoy and if you plan ahead, shop at farmers markets, but just what you need and not “just in case” and look for local natural foods shops it’s doable! it’s more about creating new habits that override your norm and soon enough it won’t feel like work or extra trouble at all. .

this is one of my absolute favorite vintage finds from my personal collection. it’s an Italian piece with deep pockets and the coolest open back with buttons! not 100% sure of its age but it’s at least 1980s if not older. ✺

i am usually a girl who is more comfortable in a pair of old Levi’s but this dress is the exception. i’ve had it only a year or so but to me it feels timeless and in all my years of thrifting and vintage hunting i have never seen anything like it. those are the kinds of attributes i look for in pieces not only for my own collection, but for you guys as well.

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. ;)

all of that to say though, i’m finding some pieces for you all along the way so get ready for some #folklingfinds when i’m home later this Summer. .
.
as always, your support and encouragement of this project of mine and sourcing and sharing sustainable fashion, and other ways of intentional living, means the world to me. love you all and hope your Summer is filled with a little extra magic.

vintage vessels are some of my favorite pieces to add to vignettes in my home. especially when they’re not just beautiful but functional (essential requirements with those of us living in smaller spaces!) a couple of these are from my personal collection and not ones i’m ready to part with yet, but most are ready for new homes so DM me if you’re curious about any and want more photos. ⋒☼❨✺ #theknittingqueenscastle

Flax is one of my favorite brands, not only because of their 100% linen trademark but because of the little affirmations that are always written on their tags. this one reads: "i love my body and my body loves me"

gained so much inspiration and life in New Orleans this past week and i know it's only going to continue pouring out of me and making itself known as i continue to travel along this path of freedom, acceptance and knowing exactly who and whose i am.

hello instagram world! i am back and ready to share a bunch of vintage finds with you this week! get ready for some real gems. ✨
•-•-•-•
this post is brought to you by my current favorite corner in #theknittingqueenscastle. a former closet turned magical open-space accessories showcase. i've realized over the years that stowing away all of my jewelry and accessories doesn't really promote me actually *using* them. i mean, "out of sight out of mind" you know? so i've been using this vintage printing press tray and now i actually wear more of what i have and identify what i don't, which then allows me to let go of those unworn pieces and give them a new home.
and, of course, i always enjoy finding new and creative ways to showcase my plant bebes and sheepskins. 🌿
