Alena Tompkins' Profile

About

I've been op shopping since I was little. My mum would take me with her and I would play among the racks of strange smelling clothing that all had a history and story behind them.

Now, I bring those stories to you as I hand pick items to share with you.

When I see something that catches my eye, I pick it up and try to imagine if other people would think its awesome, just like I do.

Sometimes I may miss damage when Im in hunting mode, so these items are placed in my 'to do' box for future upcycling. I never change perfect vintage items, but I also refuse to throw away damaged items that can have some life breathed back into them.
