adventures in north phily
a lovely lady names marianne has been helping me a bit with some madebyhank tasks. she spent the better part of the first day helping me stamp shipping supplies and tags and cutting fleece (the stuff i sew into each of my creations), which was a huge help. this is kind of a big step for me, as i have been so hesitant to hand off tasks, even though i so clearly could use a helper.
earlier this week, her and i went on a whirlwind thrifting adventure in north philadelphia. since moving back south, i have not made it out to my favorite thrift stores. that was the one benefit of living in fishtown, i suppose. thrift stores galore within biking distance. but marianne (said helper) rented a philly car share, and we ventured out in the rain in search of treasures to transform into madebyhank creations.
i found handful of belts, some vintage fabrics and linens, some old leather (to possibly use for future wristlets?), a few dresses (not shown), and a visible woman (for $1.90!), and a few other little randoms. i was particularly excited to stumble upon some new vintage cloth napkins, to add to my growing collection.
