Morning Ladies and Gents!!
I just wanted to introduce myself ( Jennifer ) and Victoria (my business partner) and tell you a little about who we are and why we are doing what we are doing-- pursuing our dreams.

No, not because Marc looked great in his hot new buff bod, but because of the strategically placed LV bag.
There it was- the re-released Stephen… Continue

My musings on our Spring '09 line.....
So, what I have realized over the past month or so is the fact that part of starting a company involves the ideas of evolution and adaptation. Not just as a person or a team, but also in the vision of what you hope to create. Many companies change over the course of their existence as they find their own vision and niches. Over the last few months as Thrift has been evolving in the minds of me… Continue

He actually made a prototype and wore it around town at the north pole for several weeks. The elves I spoke to said that outfit design and color was simply exquisite.
