the thrift collection

pippa and meg from durban emailed me about their new vintage source the thrift collection,

we’re in the business of scouring vintage and 2nd hand stores for pre-loved items that we lovingly repair, clean and re-button in the hopes of finding them new homes (in a way, we’re kind of like the fashion SPCA). All of our items are priced between R10 and R40 (if it’s a little more expensive than that, you know you’re getting something truly special). every month we will unveil a new collection – each with it’s own name – and for our market debut we will be featuring our peggy collection. where you can find once loved skirts, dresses, jackets, shirts, blouses, accessories, belts, bags and shoes. We have also added to our collection a range of lucky packets, full to the brim with goodies that will make you feel like a kid again.

art inconnu

i have a couple of places that are my go to spots for online art gazing. art inconnu is certainly a favourite, being specifically geared toward little known & under appreciated art. i tend to sigh a lot when viewing the pieces that the curator shares… my future house is going to need a lot of wall space, that’s for sure.
