Shaunya is the superfine style eye behind the site Vintage Shaun. Her curated finds have been featured on The Today Show and in Time Out New York, The New York Times, and The Blay Report. Shaunya shops Goodwill like a pro, pulling fashion out of every rack in her path. This Spring, she’s pairing up with us and Kimberlee VDW in our first ever #SpringFling contest. It was only a matter of time before we named her our newest GoodwillNyNj Style Icon!
We hope you enjoy reading Shaunya’s musings on the retro threads, Lil’ Wayne, Power Shopping and more as much as we had hearing them. Enjoy!
How did you first get interested in thrifting? Were you raised to reimagine fashion as a youngin’ or did this passion come later in life?
I started thrifting as a teen actually I was around 13. I was obsessed with retro/vintage threads from the 70s and thrift stores and vintage stores were the best place to find them.
