Sacha: i am a mom of three smart and beautiful girls, 7 years, 4 years, and 8 months. i am an ex-chef turned scooter enthusiast, now stay at home mom and urban farmer. we have a nice garden, 6 chickens, 2 bee hives, and one itty bitty dog named wink. i love to sew, garden, cook, ride my scooter, and thrift. i started buying extra cloths while thrifting for my kids because i couldn't bear leaving them there without a home. i thought i could be their foster mom while i found them a home on etsy. so was born my etsy shop.
VKC: Why are you drawn to vintage? Sacha: i had a babysitter that would take me thrifting and dress me up in old outfits. i started wearing vintage in middle school because of her, and never stopped. i liked having something unique and no one else would have it. i also found i had a perfect body for vintage, my waist fit all those tiny pants and skirts! i was also able to bring my love of sewing into old clothes that were too big, it was easy to sew them into something i could wear. my parents thought it was great, my wardrobe was so inexpensive! i think my homecoming dress was $75.
VKC: Where do you find your treasures? Sacha: i have my favorite thrift stores. doesn't everyone? my secret is my husband, he always knows these far away places that pop up on corners and in dark alleys every other month or so with the coolest things, he has an eye for those places.
VKC: How do you promote your business? Sacha: i write a blog about my life and loves, i talk about my etsy on there. i also join my friend's circles as much as i can.
VKC: What do you do when you are not creating/working?Sacha: gardening, drinking wine with the neighbors, watching the television with my love, or reading a good book.
VKC: What is your favorite item in your shop or that you have sold and why?
Sacha: my favorite items are those my babies wore because they were able to be a part of our life for a little while.
VKC: How do you juggle your business and your personal life/motherhood?Sacha: i don't know. i feel we are always on the go. i work when the kids are in school and in bed:) that's me time!
