Q:Why did you start this venture? Out of opportunity, necessity, dream job… and how did it happen?
A: kinda all of the above… When I first moved to utah I managed Somebody’s Attic a tiny thrift store in Logan Utah. I started buying stuff I needed and the older stuff felt more quality and was way cuter than the new stuff. I started getting collections of things together way fast! With the available of flea markets in the past 3 years, I started to move stuff that I had been collecting, and for me I saw the potential for doing this full time.
Q: Did you have to give anything up to pursue this?
A: You work for yourself. The biggest things you sacrifice is time and space. I “work” full time finding things, cleaning them, researching things, listing things online, ect…. Plus your house sometimes gets a little overwhelming…. We have a hoarder room.
Q: Besides this, what is another hidden talent, passion, or hobby of yours?
A: I love to paint, I don’t get very much time to do it, but sometimes I do.
Q: Dream Tattoo:
A: A kewpie baby in a teddy bear suit with a banner that says “Bear Bear”.
Q: Last Great Book I Read:
A: I don’t get a lot of time to read. Just got some recommendations from my friend Hannah, ask me again after summer.
Q: Favorite TV Shows:
A: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, all my favorite shows are over.
Q: Favorite Drink:
A: Diet Coke and coffee. They are my life force.
Q: Favorite Song of All Time
A: of all time?!? I can’t just pick one! Top bands that are always cycling through my playlists include Death Cab for Cutie, Bright Eyes, Wilco, and The Good Life.
Q:What is the most traumatic thing you’ve gone through?
A: not ready to answer this. Ha.
Q: If you could tell everyone in the world something, what would it be?
A: you are your own self advocate. Don’t let your mind tell your body your not worthy. I’m still learning this, but I’m learning how to love myself a little bit more everyday.
