I may not talk about it much anymore, but thrifting will always have a special place in my heart. Thanks to my late grandfather, I caught the thrifting bug when I was about 10 or 11. I still remember perusing the Goodwill aisles with Fafa (my grandfather) looking for ties and various vintage knick-knacks. As I grew older, I started shopping on my own at my local Goodwill and really fell in love with the art of thrifting. I actually parlayed my passion for thrifting into a successful vintage resale business, Nic’s Picks.

Although I no longer sell vintage items, nor do I thrift as much as I use to, I’m still and will always be HUGE Goodwill supporter. I’ve always admired how the company gives back so much to its community, and their runway shows are always enjoyable and of course, fashion-forward. So, imagine my excitement when the Goodwill of Monocacy Valley reached out to inquire if I’d be one of their stylists for their upcoming runway show! Uh, yes. Sign me up, please and thank you!
After agreeing to join the FABULOUS team of stylists, I met the Marketing Coordinator at the Goodwill store in Westminster to pull my looks. The store was massive, which was a bit intimidating at first, but once I got going I was on a roll! My rack is filled with lots of prints, unique pieces, and fun accessories. The looks flow very well, and I can’t wait to see them on the runway!
