who what where when why !?

GYPSY THREADS? what is this GYPSY THREADS?! 
allow us to introduce ourselves. we are GYPSY THREADS. on online shoppe for clothing, accessories, treasures and all things fabulous.
after a few years of owning and operating another brick & mortar boutique in salt lake city, change was in the air and the wind swept us away to the pacific northwest. along came another change, a gypsy little. actually, a little pirate. we call him milo. after taking some time away from the dear retail and fashion industry we love, to get settled in our new nest, we are ready to come back. this time, here with you, online. 
here you will find a selection of specially picked clothing, shoes and accessories. we adore the charm of small business and boutique shopping. so that is what you will find here. no huge warehouse full mass produced tee shirts. small quantities of carefully selected styles.
wait, theres more! we understand that boutiques and small businesses sometimes get a bad rap for high prices and pretentious attitudes. no sir, not here. we keep our price points low and when buying look for styles that we can sell without draining your bank or paypal account. most of our items are under $50. and as for attitude, well, you will probably be annoyed at our over the top friendliness and all around nerdy-ness. in fact, sometimes we are just plain ridiculous. we have way to much here in the GYPSY THREADS studio!! 
we simply love what we do, and are thrilled to be up and running! we hope you like our products and hope to build a long term friendship with all of our clients. actually, we'd love to hear from you. if you have any input, feedback, questions, requests please don't hesitate to email us at shop@gypsythreads.com or if there is a style or item you are looking for, let us know! we'll see if we can find it for you! 
thank you so much for all your support and following us on instagram over the summer. we've had a blast getting to know our followers and look forward to getting to know all of you!
much love from the Gypsy Nest, 
Brittany and the GYPSY THREADS team
oh yeah...why GYPSY THREADS? where'd that there name come from? after examining my own wardrobe after some spring cleaning in my closet, i realized that i have no specific style. i have and love a little bit of everything. a random collection of all styles, shapes, colors and even sizes! (because i eat my feelings...but that's a whole other topic in itself) it's a gypsy closet. no rhyme or reason. just a bunch of random (yet fabulous) stuff. it's GYPSY THREADS. --and there it was. the name. welcome to my world of fantastic chaos. 

meet sheena// a thrifting success story

meet sheena! wife and mother of 2 kiddos and 1 dog. sheena is a thrifting superstar. she's a pro and finding the ugliest garment on the floor at the thrift store, and styling it into a chic/unique ensemble that everyone envies and no one can believe it cost 2 bucks. (give or take a few!) we are so excited to have her be a part of our Gypsy Threads blogging team. we can't wait to see what thrifting advice and styling ideas she has for us! check out her fist post right here! 
Mixing Old and New
Hi gypsy readers!  I’m Sheena and I’m so excited to be a guest blogger here on GT.  My blog posts here will mostly be about thrifting.  How to do it, what to look for, how to style thrift items, thrifting for the home, DIY, etc, etc, etc.  
My love of thrift shopping is three fold.  First, this gypsy loves a smokin’ deal.  Linen trousers for $8?  Yes, please!  Retro blouse for $4?  Don’t mind if I do!  You wouldn’t believe some of the stuff I find there.  Second, I’m a huge supporter of the three R’s.  Reduce*Reuse*Recycle  (Yea, I’m the weird girl who reuses Ziploc bags and tin foil.)  I believe there is far too much waste in the world and we are running out of space to put it.  The more we can reuse, repurpose, upcycle…whatever you wanna call it, the better.  Thrift stores are full of treasures waiting to have new life breathed into them.  Thirdly….it’s fun!  I can’t tell you how much fun I have thrift shopping.  It’s like the ultimate treasure hunt.  I love roaming the aisles searching for that special item that will grace my home or wardrobe.  
So does shopping at thrift stores mean I have to sacrifice style?  Absolutely not!!  In fact, I have found the opposite to be true.  Finding unique pieces at the thrift store actually helps me be more creative with my existing wardrobe.  Here, let me show you… 
Here is one of my favorite recent finds.  I found this red blouse in a little “mom and pop” thrift shop while traveling down the Oregon coast this summer.  They were having a 50% off sale the day I went, so this blouse was $1.50!  These “old lady” blouses are something I see a lot of at thrift stores.  Here are two different ways I would style this. 
Here I dressed it up with a military green midi, ribbon bow tie, black jacket, and open toe wedges.
Or I can make it more preppy-casual by belting the blouse and pairing it with cropped skinnies, a cardigan, oxford shoes, and a preppy little hat.  
You see?  Mixing old and new adds dimension and character to your wardrobe.  Be creative and have fun!  More tips and tricks for thrift shopping soon to come!  Until then, peace, love and thrift!
Love- Sheena (The Thrifty Gyspy)
