Jory Giesa, Seattle
You may be familiar with our current shopkeeper Jory since she started out as one of our part-time employees! Jory took over the shopkeeper position in June 2019 after graduating from SPU. Jory is a Washington native and grew up just a few miles east in the town of Sammamish. She is motivated by the circular fashion movement – a call to giving clothes a second chance in hopes to slow down the harm the fashion industry is doing to our environment. Stop in and ask her about ways your wardrobe can aid in this movement as well!
Katie Bronk, Portland
Katie is a California native who moved to Oregon to attend University of Portland in 2014. Over the past few years, since educating herself on the damage that the fast fashion industry causes around the world, she’s been advocating for sustainable fashion. If you’re ever in Portland, be sure to stop in and say hello. While working, she loves meeting every dog that comes into the shop, and won’t let them leave without getting a treat!
We couldn’t do this work without YOU. We have volunteer opportunities to help us sort, steam, and tag as well as working in the front area of our shop. Check us out for 2 and 4 hour shifts, sign up on line, and help us make our little shop a dynamic and hospitable spot in Queen Anne.
Working together for GOOD.
