I met Emily while visiting the Soda City market (our local pop-up street market that happens every Saturday on Main St – it’s the kind of thing that makes me LOVE Columbia!). As soon as my eyes saw her racks of vintage goodies, my body took over and next thing I knew I was frantically screaming “I want this! And this!” while my husband rolled his eyes in the background and pleaded silently to leave.
Since then our friendship has blossomed and she’s become so much more than my clothing supplier. As you’ll see on her blog, Emily wears many hats! Before moving to Columbia, she taught art to high school students in Tennessee. Since I now work in the field of education, I try to bounce ideas off of her (and my sister!) to gain some teacher perspective. She’s always willing to listen to my geek speak – thus, she’s a fabulous friend in my book. In addition, Emily has also become my fellow craft-a-holic friend who can helps inspire my creativity. She’s just the best!
And while I could go on and on about how cool Emily is (and how you should follow her blog so you too can soak up some of her awesomeness), I’ll leave you with a collection of selfies showcasing my BFY vintage staples!
If you’re local, stop by the Soda City market this Saturday (April 26) to check out all of Emily’s vintage goodies! She’ll have the dress below (I just finished converting it to a mini-dress!) that is would be the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe!
