Tell us about thrifthood and what you are

The name Thrifthood originated from the word neighborhood. We wanted to create a strong community and help bring more individualized clothing styles to the people of Utah. We specialize in finding your favorite old school fit from a variety of vintage clothing styles from the 80’s, 90's, and early 2000's.

How was thrifthood started? What was the hardest part of opening the business?

Thrifthood happened all by accident… but really, it’s so wild! Sissy was styling friends for fun and Albee was the guru of reselling honestly everything! Never did we think it would be ”us” to start a business together but we soon realized that it was magic!

How much have you grown since you opened?

Y’all ever heard of growing pains?? Ha!

Both as a business but as people we’ve grown in a lot of ways. Small business is hard, however, it’s so worth it and more rewarding than anything else.
