Today’s episode is with Jaclyn, Goldberg, the founder of Jac’s Gold based in Brooklyn New York. Jaclyn was born into the fashion industry – her father owned 13 clothing stores and fashion was always a large part of her life. She’s been collecting vintage since she was a teengager, and worked in the garment industry in production for 18 years.
During the pandemic, she started classes in sustainability at FIT while she was furloughed, and also started selling tie-dyed vintage t-shirts on her Instagram. In the end, she decided not to go back to production work – turning to vintage clothing full time, which we discuss on the show.
These days you can find her at the Brooklyn Flea every weekend, as well as shows like Manhattan Vintage. She says her favorite part of vintage is digging for the gold – sifting through so many garments to find special treasure, and the smile on a customers face when they find a special piece they love. That’s golden.
All this and more in today’s episode, so let’s just dive right in!
