Wendy Bradshaw's Profile
I have always been drawn to vintage & retro things, be it clothing or furniture or automobiles. This love affair with all things vintage began when I was a young girl, travelling around with my grandparents to yard sales, flea markets and estate sales. I learned that one person's junk could be another person's treasure. My own.
My nana taught me how to sew and bought me my first sewing machine (a 1954 Singer from a neighbourhood yard sale ) and my love for fashion was born. A couple of 4-H courses later and I was wearing my own garments.
As a teenager, I grew up watching my father and uncles rebuild & restore vintage autos from rusted-out shells to cherried-out perfection. Recreating, re-fashioning and reusing has been an ever present way of life.
As an adult, I am a hopeless thrift store addict…
