Why did you apply for Project Pop-Up?
I have been a treasure hunter and collector of beautiful things for as long as I could remember, trailing my mom and grandmother at the local church thrift shops and estate sales on weekends.
Naturally, I was recruited to work in vintage shops and handmade designer boutiques, solidifying my experience of running a small business. All the while, my collection continued to grow. Soon enough I began to sell my overflow of wardrobe as a hobby. It was encouraging to see my things sell when I presented them to the public! I kept collecting and learning as much as I could about fabric, design, mending, and history of fashion. One day a local designer and friend told me about Project Pop up and encouraged me to apply. I decided to take a chance on myself and apply to Project: Pop-up so that I can push myself to take the steps and make this project a reality.
