love notes

Hi Michelle from Ontario, Canada. As a fellow thrifter I LOVE your feed, what you do, stand for and how you style all your goods!


I know I have said this before. But your account is seriously one of the best Instagram accounts I follow. I wanted to let you know I look forward to watching your stories everyday, your products are awesome and on point. And you have shown me so many ways of being/living more sustainable.


Exactly how described. Measurements and suggested sizing was spot on. Obsessed!

[in reference to a vintage denim purchase]


I received my bag and I love it!!! I'm making a conscious effort to only shop vintage + second hand this year. Thanks for making my first purchase so successful :)


Love these style inspos!

I've been wearing the HECK out of the herringbone overcoat I bought from you at the Portland Flea a few months ago! Not only was it my first "purposeful" vintage find it's also my favorite vintage piece!


Thank you so much for sending me my order and including the sweet note... I'm obsessed with it ALL :) especially the lace top.. one of my new absolute favorites.


Girl it's AMAZING! I have very fine hair so I was a little nervous when I saw how big the medium [scrunchie] was, but it is PERFECT. And in a regular pony I have so much more volume now!
