NEW FEATURED SPRING/SUMMER CHARITIES
Every few months we change out our featured charities on the site that you can donate a portion of your sale to. If you haven’t heard about our mission to charity, well, here goes. We believe that how you express yourself is not just with clothing or home goods, it’s your everyday demeanor. And believe that it’s not only in the world of fashion that what goes around comes around. That’s why a portion of every sale goes to charity and why we call ourselves a vintage collection with a cause.
With all that being said, without further ado, here are our new featured charities!

In February 2009, while attending Pepperdine University, Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson joined forces. Having both been affected by female bullying throughout their youth, the young women decided to create change by giving females a platform to speak out about this universal experience. What began as an idea for a documentary about girl-against-girl bullying, ultimately became Kind Campaign, a multi-platform movement that has transformed hundreds of thousands of lives, friendships, classrooms and communities around the world.
Kind Campaign is an internationally recognized nonprofit organization that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl bullying through their global movement, documentary film, in-school assemblies and educational curriculum.
NutritionFacts.org is the only non-commercial, nonprofit, science-based website to provide free video updates on the latest in evidence-based nutrition.
Their mission is to improve public health by providing the latest in evidence-based nutrition and health research in an accessible format to enable the public to make informed dietary choices.
Operation Smile is an international medical charity that has provided hundreds of thousands of free surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other dental and facial conditions. It is one of the oldest and largest volunteer-based organizations dedicated to improving the health and lives of children worldwide through access to surgical care. Since 1982, Operation Smile has developed expertise in mobilizing volunteer medical teams to conduct surgical missions in resource-poor environments while adhering to the highest standards of care and safety. Operation Smile helps to fill the gap in providing access to safe, well-timed surgeries by partnering with hospitals, governments and ministries of health, training local medical personnel, and donating much-needed supplies and equipment to surgical sites around the world. Founded and based in Virginia, U.S., Operation Smile has extended its global reach to more than 60 countries through its network of credentialed surgeons, pediatricians, doctors, nurses, and student volunteers.
Upon checkout, you will be able to choose the charity a portion of your purchase will go toward. If a specific need or holiday arises we will occasionally have pop-up charities we spotlight (those charities will also be added to the dropdown charity form at checkout). In that case, we will always keep you posted so please continue to read the blog, check out social media, and subscribe to our newsletter!
