#ThrifterMia: The Urban Outfitters of thrift
I love everything about thrifting. In a world of mass-produced mall outfits, you are a unique butterfly when you thrift. It’s sustainable and helps infuse a breath of freshness into your wardrobe. Most importantly, it’s easy on your wallet without sacrificing style. It’s everything.
Being from Miami and loving thrifting? Not so easy a task. Your options aren’t as vast and you need to be a serious ninja dedicated to your craft, unless you log onto Thrifter.
Thrifter is an online thrift shop curated and run by a Miami model and former nightlife rep. The stylish couple began Thrifter from a place of genuine fashion appreciation and a desire to make popular brands available to people on an average budget.
Victor Gosa and Jenny Ho are a hippie-chic couple who spend their time traveling the world for treasures and cultivating a California-esque thrift ambience here in Miami. This makes my heart sing, especially since their treasures are affordable and conveniently available online.
Spanning beyond clothing, Thrifter sells art pieces, sporting and home goods, even collectable pieces. Both Victor and Jenny have a keen eye for what makes something valuable to any person, and those perceptive tastes are getting notice.
Thrifter is growing and the couple is full of deliciously creative ideas for the future, including opening a physical location. We will be anxiously awaiting that, but until then everyone can purchase their thrifty finds online at Thriftermia.com
Are you thinking of adding some pizazz to your wardrobe by nixing old clothes that has been collecting stale energy and space? We've written about this in the past. The continuous evolving of one's wardrobe is why we love thrifting. It gives you the luxury of updating your look for a quarter of the price. We recommend getting in touch with Thrifter to sell them your unneeded clothing and accessories. Not only will you make a little cash, but you’ll be supporting local. The charity-conscious couple can direct whatever clothes they don’t take to local non-profit organizations who donate them to a good cause, like Best Buddies or Charity Water.
If you are local Miami, you can visit their Wynwood Art Walk Pop Up on February 14th. We will most definitely be in attendance. Their stand, which will include a dressing room on-site, will be open from 6-12 PM.
