Meet Anna and Rhoda
Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Anna was brought up in the art of antiquing and thrifting. Her house was always ﬁlled with items of aged decor all telling their unique beautiful story. Anna took her loves of style and fashion to New York where she attended and graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology. While in New York, Anna submerged herself in the fashion world where she worked in fashion week, different boutiques large and small, and the world reknowned fashion public relations ﬁrm, Peopleʼs Revolution. Anna also served in marketing and promotions for cutting edge boutique, OAK, where she managed the web site, handled logistics, and even modeled the amazing fashions. Donʼt let her fancy pants credentials fool you. She is no stranger to getting her hands dirty by scouring the roadside and ﬂea markets for the best treasures to outﬁt your events.
Rhoda’s lived all over but got to Austin as fast as her husband’s little ’79 Toyota could haul her down IH-35. Having grown up in the world of flea markets and yard sales, weekends were spent with her mother (a certified bargain hunter) as they followed homemade roadside signage and used as maps to finding new treasures. Thrifty buys were displayed as trophies in their home. She embraced the vintage aesthetic early on and has held onto it ever since. After working professionally in corporate communication, event planning, and academic coaching, Rhoda decided to combine her picking heritage with her vintage habit and turned it into a career. Try to tell her vintage is dead and she’ll invite you to sit for tea and hear why the style is thriving and alive. She might even teach you a little craft and send you on your way with a handmade paper flower garland. Rhoda combines her skills in communication, planning, crafting, and junking to bring only the ﬁnest vintage rentals and styling to your event.
