how I became an avid thrifter and vintage hunter

I began visiting thrift shops in the early 90s, right around when grunge hit the scene but before thrifting was cool. I was going to school and living in a housing co-op called Valhalla at the time. A house member asked me for a ride to a place called Family Thrift, located in a rundown shopping mall off a highway exit I'd never taken. It was there that I first discovered the wild, woolly world of thrift shops and secondhand clothing. Since then, I've honed my sense of what makes clothing good quality, but I haven't lost the thrill of finding something really special in a sea of mundane.

    I live in upstate New York in a little lake cottage where I can hear the crickets at night and see the sun rise every morning. I love finding beautiful vintage things and sending them out for a new life out in the great wide world.
