Featured Fridays – GreenTrunkClothing

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , at 3:15 pm by treacleandinketsy

TGIF!  Whew, what an emotional roller coaster I have been on this week.  I let my employers know that I am officially looking for full-time work, and that was so hard because they are such a sweet family.  I had a very promising interview at the bank, but I have not heard anything back from them, and they have already removed the job posting, so now it’s not feeling so promising.  And on top of that, over the past year, I have begun to become quite emotional about *once a month*, and this week I almost bought a plane ticket to go to SC this weekend, until I realized that it was Memorial Day weekend.  One thing I have learned – never make big decisions when I’m feeling like that.  Yay for the weekend!

And on to today’s Featured Fridays’ seller:

As you know, I am all about vintage patterns and upcycling.  So, of course, fellow TeamCAC member Green Trunk Clothing caught my eye right off the bat.  Here are some clothes that would be great on a holiday weekend, such as the one we are quickly approaching.  Going on a pic-nic?  Grab one of her too-cute sun visors to keep you protected.  Staying home and doing some spring cleaning?  There is a plethora of aprons to choose from.  Going out on the town?  How about an upcycled slip dress.  And, all of Green Trunk Clothing’s listings have a wonderful vintage feel.

Now, not only does Jaya upcycle and repurpose, so you know you’re doing the environment some good when you purchase from her, but:

“10% of all sales go to suport the WAMAMA Sewing Project of Lake Kivu Christian Center in Goma, DR Congo, E. Africa for more information go to http://www.lkccgoma.com/default.html”

How cool is that?  Good for the planet and the people on it!

Be sure to check out Green Trunk Clothing, and while you’re at it, go on over to Green Trunk Designs as well for more cute hats, tote bags, and yoga mat bags.  In the mean time, here are a few of my faves.
