Dana and I am the woman behind Dead Byrd Vintage. Vintage has been a passion of mine since I was just a little babe. I owe this love all to my mom, for taking me to thrift stores and second hand shops growing up allowing me to pick out whatever I wanted… Lending me to make decisions like wearing black patent leather tap shoes as if they were an everyday pair of sneakers.
I am also an artist and over the years my interests have fluctuated and evolved from studio art to fashion design to weaving and photography, but vintage clothing has always been high above the rest. The hunt for the perfect vintage piece is what fuels my excitement when building my collection. I often refer to thrift shopping as my “therapy” or “meditation” because its the one time I consistently find myself completely lost in the moment.
