Inspiration: As a writer and artist, I struggle to balance my desire for a beautiful home and wardrobe with my fragile budget. Over the years, I’ve developed two ways to cope with this major issue.
1. Thrifting for basically everything I buy. This allows me to furnish my home and wardrobe without breaking the bank. You’d be shocked by what I find at my local thrift stores, it’s truly amazing.
2. Make It – Don’t Buy It! There are so many beautiful things in this world that are unbelievably easy to make as long as you have some patience and are willing to fail. I make everything from clothing and home decor to beauty and cleaning products.
I share all of my DIY and thrifting tips and tricks of the trade right here on BackBayouVintage.com!
Store Mission: I have always LOVED vintage fashion, but I could never afford to buy anything from upscale vintage boutiques. In 2012 I decided to remedy this problem by creating Back Bayou Vintage, an affordable online vintage retailer. Our store strives to provide stunning relics of the past at a reasonable rate. To do so, we have a $99 or Less policy – which even includes designer items and wedding dresses! Every bride deserves to have the dress of their dreams, and we are thrilled to help make those dreams come true!
