In short, we coined Second-Life® Objects as a modern rendition of Second-Hand. Yes, it’s an used object, and yes, it’s less cost to you. Yes, it’s also been taken care of –– which is why it’s in killer condition.
During the excruciating painting phase of taking on the 1001 NW Brooks Street location in June (while eco-painting our asses off with SECOND-LIFE white paint, mind you) it was decided that we were not going to make compromises. That recycling matters. That enough shit is made for the masses and it’s important to slow down in life and make better choices. Consume more wisely and create less waste and impact on our earth, anyone?
Our main Second-Life object is clothing. Some vintage, all beautiful and curated under the Found brand. Which means you’ll find a range of vintage Eddie Bauer sweaters this winter, some Gucci boots, and Madewell stovepipe jeans next to an entire vintage holiday rack filled with black velvet, gold sequence, and bead work. Gah! Soon we’ll start posting these babes on the website, but until then, that’s the perk of coming into the shop often – you score!
The photo above is of our stunning handmade metal + wood chandelier that’s also Second-Life. Home goods are something we love sourcing, and in spades at the shop. Thanks to Google image search, it’s known that the designer retails this baby for upwards of $600 (not including shipping) and World Market is one big box that offers a knock off that sucks. We’re asking $499 for this sexy beast and someone is going to love it on the regular.
We hope you now know what Second-Life Objects® mean, and that you kinda give a shit too.
