You may have noticed a new section at the top of this website that links you to an Etsy shop...my new Etsy shop! I am so excited to begin this journey. I have toyed around with the idea of opening a vintage shop for quite some time, but have only become serious about pursing this for the past couple of months. During that time, I have been planning, shopping, creating a shop name and logo, as well as overall aesthetic. Then comes the photography and the research. There is quite a bit that comes into it.
A small collection of about ten items are up right now, but more will be coming soon. I have some shopping trips planned and am hoping to recruit live models in the future.
I love vintage clothing. I started getting into thrifting in college and I have a decent personal collection. I feel very fortunate to be able to curate a collection for others who have less time, energy, and resources to sift through thrift stores.
My friend Sheena, who owns Ruby Threads Vintage has been really helpful and supportive in this whole process. She has answered a lot of my questions and walked me through how she has grown her business. I also read #Girlboss, which is by no means a "how to start a business" book, but it has a lot of insight and was encouraging to read.
I encourage you to stop in to the shop periodically and to follow my account on Instagram (@214Broadway), where I will post pictures of some of my best thifting finds. Here's to new adventures!
