My name is Lisa Bronwyn and I’ve been haunting thrift stores for nearly four decades now. You could say that shopping is in my blood. I am proud to come from a long line of seasoned scavengers!
I want to live in a world where everyone is kind to themselves and others. This world would be filled with people who know how to ride a motorcycle and put on false eyelashes (maybe not at the same time?)
I’m a published author that’s been spotlighted through Ignite Seattle 11 and SuicideGirls.com and have worked with brands from Sephora to Google Express.
You can find me scoring at thrift shops nationwide and teaching others how to resell fashionable clothing for fun and profit. One of my hobbies is dabbling in various programming languages and I’m hoping that my first app will hit your mobile devices in the Winter of 2015.
This site is my outlet for everything that I resell. My other passions include learning, reading, beauty, style, parenting, motorcycles, and technology.
It was the early 80’s and mom and dad were wardrobe stylists on Melrose Avenue.
“I like your shorts,” he said, shyly. The man standing next to him kept talking loudly. “Michael, Miiiiiichael, check this out, I like this.” The man’s name was Don and he had the craziest hair that I had ever seen in my short life. He looked like a troll doll and I was mesmerized.
My dad had locked the door, but it was too late. A little crowd was beginning to gather outside, peeking in through our storefront window.
I still can’t believe that Michael Jackson and boxing promoter Don King were standing before me, in my parents’ store.
It was so hilarious and awkward that MJ was complimenting me on my green satin basketball shorts. I don’t remember why I was wearing them, but here I am, telling this story 32 years later!
Some of my parents’ clientele included not only Michael Jackson but also the likes of Pat Benatar, Pee-Wee Herman (my dad wouldn’t take an out-of-state check from him!), Steve McQueen, Bob Dylan, and many other cool people. Their store was profiled in many national and international publications.
Michael Jackson acquired his band jackets from my dad during his famous Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band phase.
I was quite precocious and remember the exact moment when I told my mom that I didn’t want “anymore dead people’s stuff!”
My extended relatives were already pros in antiquing and they collected all sorts of fascinating goodies. I learned so much about their processes just by watching. I just wish that I had listened more!
I really am on a mission to improve my life with everything that I learn, but I lost the manual when the road that I was on took several sharp turns.
I’m a style and beauty chameleon and if I can do it, so can you! It’s really only hair and makeup at the end of the day, and it’s easy to try on different outfits, so why not have as much fun as you can in the process?
One of my lifelong inspirations is a woman named Susan Strauss aka “The Lava Lady” that used to live near my elementary school. She’s left quite the lasting impression and she was around well before Ari Seth Cohen’s Advanced Style.
I still think of her fondly after all of these years. Some kids were afraid of her because she lived in a stark and dramatic house that looked like black lava rocks. Her blush, platforms, and big, friendly smile peppered an already unusual neighborhood in Hollywood.
I’ve also been a beauty professional for over half of my life and I love to play with makeup whenever I find the time and inspiration. It’s fun to make beauty video logs, especially about product swatches.
Maybe I have a slightly unhealthy fixation with Pinterest as I’m going on around 10k pins with nearly 2300 followers. All that insomnia turned out to be useful for something.
