On a quest for sustainability and to eliminate fast fashion, we have begun upcycling some items. Since the joy of thrifting for us not only comes from the thrill of finding an old item of high quality but from the moment our creative juices begin to run, we began breathing new life into them. Each piece is unique and also redesigned or upcycled by Thrift Happens. Click below to check the collection out and to grab what you like. Remember all items are limited in quantity and in size.
