My favorite had to be working at the resale shop. I wasn't sitting at a desk all day long, I loved my co-workers, I got to play around with vintage finds all day long and chat with customers. Win, win.
One of my favorite customers was simply known as the scarf lady. She would come in multiple times a week and make a bee line to the scarf section and buy them by the handful. From her I learned about Vera.
Vera Neumann was an artist and designers that believed everyone should be able to own a piece of art.
Her way of sharing her artwork was in clothing. My favorite pieces that incorporate her love of color and pattern are her scarfs.
Vintage Vera scarfs can always be found on ebay. These are currently up on ebay:
I picked some up during my time at the shop. I'll show you what I did with one tomorrow!
