Thank you for keeping communication with me since the shop is going to be closed soon. Thank you for still being able to send these to me in a timely fashion. I love the shorts so much.

From thrifting and sifting - August and Rudy begins.

August and Rudy began in 2011 when it was under the name Sloppy Jo's Sloppy Second's as a way to clear out some of my long collected vintage wares. I always had a fascination with times past and learned the great adventure of second hand shopping at a very young age. "Thrifting" as my friends and I called it, was a weekly past time in high school and at times a race to who could find the best threads first. This penchant for second hand shopping also came with a great concept and care for resourcefulness and not always looking to buy new as a way to be in style and express one's own identity. These beliefs carried into my shop days as Sloppy Jo's Sloppy Second's expanded and transitioned onto the name August and Rudy. Now three years later, August and Rudy is a full time business aiding to women's and men's vintage clothes as well as retro home decor. Not only are vintage clothes beautiful in make and style, but you can buy in confidence knowing you are recycling and reusing to create a look that's all your own.
