Pre-Loved Podcast: Liv of Able Shoppe
Let’s talk about today’s guest! Today I’m speaking with Liv of Able Shoppe. Liv is an artist who loves finding ways to reinvent pre-loved clothing. While she’s long had a love for thrifting, she learned about the real dangers of the fast fashion industry when she interned for an ethical clothing boutique. When the time came to start her own clothing business, Liv prioritized curating a collection of vintage, recreated, and handmade goods.
We talk about the different jobs she’s held in the thrift and ethical fashion world, how she found her own place and quit her full-time job to pursue vintage as a career, and all things style.
