This week's Shop of the Week is Throw It Forward , owned by Angie.
Please tell us a little about you and your shop.
Hi, I am Angie and my shop is Throw It Forward. As a lifelong learner, I enjoy the task of researching vintage items to solve their mysteries. As an artist, I love experimenting and being creative with photographing items. The idea behind the name of Throw It Forward came from my desire to promote conscious buying, upcycling, recycling and repurposing. Just like Earth Day reminds us of the importance of these things. I wanted my shop to be that same kind of reminder. Throw It Forward’s philosophy is “Don’t throw it away…Throw It Forward!” …into a new generation, something artistic, something new, or to someone in need. Vintage, Creative, and Repurpose supply is just what you will find at Throw It Forward.
What is your favorite era and why?
My favorite era for home décor is most definitely Mid Century Modern. The clean lines are a perfect canvas for adding personal style. And for fashion, I love 60s clothing for the range of styles, bold designs and colors.
What is your favorite item in your shop at the moment and why?
Currently, my favorite item I have listed is a set of 28 Speedball Nibs with Speedball Textbook. I dug through more than 100 vintage nibs to find the best ones to create a full set. Each nib is a different size which is very enticing to me as an abstract artist.
