As a shopaholic, obsessive writer, and vintage enthusiast, it only made sense to start building a business out of it. The true vintage enthusiast part came in handy when I realized how much clothing ends up in the ocean each year. I didn't want to be a part of the floating pile of trash; instead, vintage became my way of recycling and reducing waste. The more vintage I buy, the less likely a beautiful item that has its own history will be destroyed, and destroy the ecosystem in the process. Victorian antiques also fascinate me; they're one of the brilliant wonders of the world.
Oh, and... when you see 'New York', I'm from the state. I actually like my city better than NYC; there are more hippies here!
