First and foremost, thank you so much for stopping by my website!
My name is Zion :) I am the one-(wo)man-band behind this operation. It ain’t much, but it’s something.
My mission is to make finding thrifted/vintage clothes easier for you. Going into various thrift stores can be a hassle and “vintage” stores use their novelty items as an excuse to raise their prices. Most of the items I am selling, I have spent hours searching through the racks of several stores in order to redeem unique and high quality items. Most, if not all, are name brand items and the fabrics vary from wool, linen, to silk. I hope to bring timeless pieces to you at an affordable price.
It is also very important to bring awareness to an environmental crisis that the fashion industry has created. This industry is the third largest manufacturing giant in the world with more than $500 billion of loss every year due to clothing underutilization and lack of recycling (House of common Environmental Audit Committee, 2019). In other words, do you ever wonder where all of the clothes go when they don’t sell? They don’t end up in thrift or vintage stores, they end up in landfills. I am guilty of buying fast fashion clothing because it is easily accessible & cheap. Unfortunately, quantity has become better than quality in the eyes of the consumer. We want to stay up with the latest trends- ‘we’ includes ME!
So, here is my challenge, that we stop ourselves from buying more and more, and focus on buying items that will not only become staples to our wardrobe by adding authenticity and uniqueness, but that will last. Whether that be secondhand or new, let’s all work on bettering the world in small ways as best as we can.
On a lighter note, the website also includes handmade products. I am an art enthusiast. I love painting, ceramics, jewelry, glass art, drawing… whatever it is, I love to create. Art is something that has always brought me joy. If I can’t convince you that the world may be in need of changing and that by buying secondhand clothing, you can be a part of that change, then I guess I will have to settle with spreading small bits of joy.
A to Z Vintage, Zion <3
