If you’ve been following me on twitter (@fr3shdaily / @freshwallstreet) then you most likely know about the soon to come store on the blog .you are probably wondering why the store? Long story short, its the boomerang effect , let me explain this properly.the truth is that every time i put people on where i thrift shop thinking it was gonna save me the the trouble off not going through the ”can i buy it off you?” conversation, it painfully doesnt .
I showed them where to fish and it seems they only like the fish i catch, so by the kind fault of inadequate space for my vintage leather finds i decided to finally let go off some of my precious finds to my close friends , which i must say felt like giving up a kid for adoption.
Coming across these gems is a journey in itself which i find interesting and half the time very disappointing. When i first started thrift shopping it was a disaster!…my thrift partner never Failed to remind me that i didn’t have the foresight….i really didn’t, i was used to the new stitching and the ceremonial ripping of tags off the the store purchased items. My first thrift item was a prada satchel (i actually passed up on this item and snatched it from my thrift shop friend when he got it treated )…i was obsessed. To me a thrift shop leather find says one word, tested.
When i come across a find i always pay attention to the connection, the connection stems from the character of the find….i love vintage finds because they posses abundant character and there is a certain look to it that makes it so cool…it constructs almost a sentimental connection instantly….you can tell i’m obsessed right? Don’t blame me, those who know the itch know the itch.
I AM STILL WORKING ON PAYMENT PROCESS AND DELIVERY SO WHEN I MAP BOTH OUT I WILL LET Y’ALL KNOW. THE STORE WILL CATER TO BOTH GENDERS AND ITS GOING TO BE A FIRST COME FIRST BUY SO BE QUICK TO CHECK OUT UPDATES ON TWITTER AND EMAIL (IF YOU HAVE SUBSCRIBED TO THE BLOG).
