I have contacted all of my consignors (past and present) to let them know I am closing. Some of the items consigned are ones that I’ve asked to hold on to if I am able to keep Remix open. The rest were either donated or given back (or scheduled to).
Let's keep re purposing! Especially our fabulous fashion finds. I don't think I'm the only one who has reflected on this current global pandemic and thought this might be Mother Nature's way of finally trying to get through to us. Although Remix is a speck of dust, relatively, when trying to help reverse global warming, it's helping. I really would like to avoid the world turning into one big Coke litter bottle. From a selfish point of view, I also have a deep appreciation for the fun and sustainable fashion. I'm an introvert at heart and fashion allows me to express myself without having to use words, follow any rules and truly be myself. Yes, its what’s inside that matters but if you look good, you feel good and that makes you happy and even if you don’t know it, you are deflecting that happiness onto others. In my world, that is what makes humans be better humans.
I am a firm believer in [trying] to see the sliver lining in life experiences, even if they aren’t how you wanted things to turn out. I will miss seeing so many of you. From the advice, to the laughs, to the simple smiles - you have had a positive impact on my life. For that alone, I can't be anything but grateful for having this opportunity.
