Thrifters Creed

Irreverent and slightly jaded
I pluck treasures midst the cast-offs and faded
Imagine a blank canvas destined to be painted
In patterns and styles mall rats consider outdated

Thrifter on the hunt of a well crafted past
I’ll resew and patch history to make it last
Pay homage to a long last craft
Laying a vintage foundation many call vast

 

I stalk the ailes for vintage treasures
Style and quality is beyond measure
Repurpose the worn and weathered
And develop a personal style that’s untethered

 

Every morning awake and rejoice
Another day to give the castoffs a new voice
A little bit of vintage daily
I do it by choice

And many will question what I do
Wonder why sift through the dirt, when I can buy new
I ask: “Why do what’s expected of you?
Thrifting isn’t a fad to me, it’s for the well-styled few”
