Hi, I’m Beth Giles and I scour the land of Southern California for the best vintage that is relevant to modern trends. My daughter Ruby, is my little assistant, she carries my purse, “oooh’s” and “ahh’s” at dresses and keeps me company on the road. When we find pretty things, we put them in our online shop, Salvage Life. You can read more about Salvage Life and our adventures on our blog. Thank you for having us, we are so happy to share about what we do.
A: I think the first piece of vintage I wore was a flannel from my grandpa in junior high. That’s pretty funny considering the feminine style I’m into now. In high school, 70’s style came into fashion and while everyone was buying new bellbottoms, I found used ones at a vintage store along with a polyester shirt that had butterflies on it; it was my favorite shirt that year. I had always loved thrifting with my mom, but that’s when I started realizing that I could wear vintage that was relevant to the trends.
