Tuning in With...
Hey kiddos! Well...I'm SO excited to finally get started on this series that I conjured up many, many months ago. And what better day to start it off than National Music Day? I'm a firm believer that no matter what profession you're in, music is somehow involved. Whether you're creating it, are inspired by it, or just use it to get through the workday, it is something that's deeply personal to each listener.
A lot of times, when I'm thrifting by myself, I pop in my ear buds as I roam the aisles, and I find it really helps me concentrate on the often-intimidating task at hand (plus it's usually a lot better than the music that's playing in the store!). So I thought it'd be fun to "tune in" with other thrifters to see what gets them going! The person interviewed had one of two options: create an ultimate thrift mix that represents their personality, or take a favorite thrifted item (or outfit!) and create a mix inspired by it.
Here to get things going on this inaugural series post is non other than one of my favorite thrifters: Van from Thrift Core (pictured above). And let me tell you, this lady is loaded with talent. Not only does she run her own antique booth featuring tons of quirky and cute items, she's also an artist (see her work here) and is on her way to opening her own shop (read more about that here).
She said the following six songs "represent music that makes me happy and inspired when I hear them." Let's see what music means to her, and what songs she picked...
Thank you, Van, for taking the time to share your mix with us!
