When I received an invitation to the Something Borrowed + La Cruzita Pop-Up Shop at Huddle, a shared working space at 235 N. San Joaquin, I wanted to learn more. I knew one of the participants (Cruz Arredondo) from her collaborations with Ryan Camero and Café Coop and seeing her art at InstaMeet 3.
I had been to Huddle and wondered where the pop-up would be located. Would it fill the entire common space? I was greeted by Amy Sieffert, the owner of Etsy’s somethingborrowedvtg and she led me to the pop-up.
The merchandise was beautifully displayed making the most of the space. There were racks of vintage clothing items and accessories by Amy and hair adornments and wall décor by Cruz offering a variety for the shopper.
The store is open daily from 11am – 6 pm now through Sunday, August 31 with extended hours this Friday until 9 pm during Huddle’s Craft Beer Tasting to benefit Placeholder Magazine. Please support small business and shop local. The pop-up is especially convenient for downtown workers to take a shopping lunch break.
More About SomethingBorrowedVtg -
Amy has been selling vintage clothing since 1999 when she realized there was a lack of affordable, attractive, and well maintained vintage clothing. Believing that good fashion should be sold at a good price, Amy created ‘Something Borrowed’ to make the world a little more beautiful through fashion.
Amy spends her days searching, scavenging, haggling, and altering. Most items she sells are from the 1950s-1990s – everything from hippie to mod to rockabilly to grunge.
What sets SomethingBorrowedVtg apart? Amy loves showing people how to wear what they might have thought ‘unwearable.’ Her philosophy is to help the earth by wearing vintage and thrift styles passing them on to keep them out of the landfill.
