I worked for Sara for a couple years and we just have a special bond. We work really well together and balance each other out so when she got the idea of doing a mini flea market last year I jumped at the chance to help out. Especially when she said I could bring my toddler and have a lot of creative control. It organically grew from there and when she got The Odditorium this year I was really excited. It's the perfect venue for what we're doing. I hope we keep getting better and better, that's the goal of everything right?
Vintage has always been very important in my life. I grew up pretty poor and we would shop for school clothes at Goodwill or the San Francisco 'Bins'.
I discovered that if I wore unique, quirky clothing the fact that they were second hand became less of an issue and the emphasis was on my originality instead. These days thrifting is very meditative for me. Finding a Pucci dress hidden among a rack of Old Navy hand me downs is a total rush. I love scrounging and digging. I'm like a rat I guess, but a fashionable rat, hopefully."
