We have frequented thrift shops since we were fashion-conscious teens on a budget visiting the high-end neighborhood shops in Detroit. We dressed well and no one was the wiser. Doing it well requires a good eye and being willing to wade through until you find the really good stuff! We have fun, and we have boundaries: “If it doesn’t make you really smile, don’t buy it!”
Upcari takes this to the next level. We look at the fabric and unique design characteristics that would add something special to a bag. Can we combine a lovely old look with a fresh color to make something exciting? Is the weave something that will hold up to wear?
And it all comes together in a new bag!
