Earth Day and denisebrain anniversary

Earth Day and I go way back—I remember being very excited about the very first one in 1970, and drew this poster for my father.


Fast forward to Earth Day 1999, when I decided to give the vintage clothing business a try. This is the first dress I sold.


You know that vintage clothing is generally better made and more interesting and beautiful than anything new, but today especially, remember it is recycling. That is one of the main reasons I love doing what I do.

Happy Earth Day!
