Big Things: It’s 2014

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts through December and January!

We’ve been dusting off and cleaning up some things. We hosted an acoustic show with two sweet singing ladies and Uly! SUPER BIG: We’re adding lots of inventory to our website so you guys can shop anytime you want, anyplace that has wifi you desire.

We’ve been generally kicking ass and taking names with lots of different projects and working on a blog makeover. 

So, while all that is going on, let’s talk about some huge things that are happening.

1. Our girl Amanda is going to NEW FUCKING YORK FASHION WEEK.

There are some super secret plans in the works for the building that I don’t even know about yet. But, big things *cross your fingers* are to come for this building. *knock on wood* It would be a fantastic edition to the city and an open space for creatives to come together AND MAKE AWESOME SHIT HAPPEN.

My spirit animal is a Narwhal. Majestic little shits they are!

Describe your style in three words.

Three words!? Thats too hard. I dont really fit into a box. I have extremely bright treasure troll hair, I wear vintage every day, and my T-shirt collection is probably better then anyone I know.

Describe your personality in three words.

Intense, Outgoing, and Frugal

Tell me about the birth of Revival.

Many moons ago I helped open stores in Florida. I’ve been at this Buy/Sell/Trade game for about 8 years now. I opened the store originally uptown about 2 years ago. We got an offer to move to the French Quarter in Jan of this year. The space is three times the size, beautifully New Orleans, and just seemed to be a perfect fit for us! We’ve been here ever since and loving ever minute of it! Oh and can I mention I went to a psychic and he predicted my move months before! Creepy!

Give me a little background about you, where you’re from and why you’re staying in New Orleans. 

I am from all over the US, but primarily the south. I run Revival and am also a buyer in the film industry. I have a cat named Uly and the coolest damn friends a girl could ask for! I fall in love with New Orleans a little bit more everyday. The thought of leaving her makes me sad, but I never know where the road is going to take me. I live my life that way.

You obviously live a cool life and are doing many different things, what are some other things you’re up to recently?

I’m a wardrobe stylist, I sometimes take photos, and I volunteer at a kick ass place called Spay Mart!
