This is the last week that Love Street Salvage will be open as a retail space. I know, some of you will be sad but don’t you fret! We are just making some big changes but we aren’t going anywhere! We will be using the space for girl’s night out style sewing classes! I will be teaching a refashion class and I will (hopefully) be bringing in other crafty girls who sew to teach classes as well. All classes and workshops will be based on the idea of “sustainable fashion”. I will still have a small boutique section where vintage clothing can be purchased during these events. We will also hold clothing swaps, private parties and pop up shops, the possibilities are endless but everything will be related to this idea of sustainable fashion!
The classes/workshops will accommodate up to 4 people. You can either schedule the class for you and 2 or 3 of your best gals, or you can get on a list of individuals that are interested and I will put together a class. This is a good option for those who are maybe new to the area and looking to meet new friends 🙂 The classes I personally will be teaching will be refashion classes, all you need to bring is an item to refashion and I will provide all other supplies and materials! I will also be providing light refreshments and while I am not permitted to provide alcoholic beverages, I definitely do not mind if you bring your own! In fact I’d encourage it, this should be a party!
I’m still in the process of getting everything set up but if you are interested in further updates, please join our email list to the right of this page. Or you can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My passion for sustainable fashion and disgust for “fast fashion” are the fire that is driving me now, and this strong need I feel to educate people on these serious matters. For anyone interested in knowing more, there is an interesting documentary called “The True Cost”. It was on Netflix at one point, not sure if it still is but it’s a good introduction to these unethical practices. Go watch! You’ll never shop at H&M again. Haha!
Right now I am trying to liquidate most of the inventory I have in the shop. If you are local, everything in the shop is 50% off! I am also taking appointments for private wholesale shopping for next week. I will still be doing markets as well, here is a list of what I have scheduled so far:
7/23 Sugarhood Market
8/6 Blue Moon Festival
8/14 Reggae Festival (?)
9/11 Urban Flea Market
9/17 9th & 9th Street Festival (?)
10/9 Urban Flea Market
