We spent a morning in Tinley Park, IL this weekend where we visited our favorite farmer's market and I tested out this vintage Union made polyester shirt with short sleeves, button-down, retro plaid top in Millennial Pink and gray. Pairing it with skinny crop jeans and my red summer sandals gave the ensemble the pop it needed to work. Added a pair of retro sunglasses and a straw market bag and it worked. I loved the texture of the soft fabric so smooth to the tough, but it was just a little too small so it's now getting ready to get its picture taken and added to our Poshshop.
Designer, Beth Dreyer, from Fabulous Fleece and More has a square at the Tinely Park Farmers Market. I fell in love with her cotton pillowcases in cute designs and have been purchasing and testing several of her products this summer. Now, she is collaborating with Reckless Resale on the design of our own market bag! She shared a prototype with us this weekend and we gave it a debut at Mariano's. Because it's in development, I can't give you all the dets except that it contains a divider that helps keep things separate without having to carry a second bag. I personally like this feature and something I've not seen this in this style bag.
Beth has been a small business owner for years and counts emotional compensation as a social reward of selling in small communities. The depth of that wisdom is something I'd like to attract to Reckless Resale. We're on a journey here and are meeting some amazing people along the way. It's going to be a walk to remember.
Little finds from our farmers market and garden!
It's been one year since we released the brand name, Reckless Resale. What started as needing a good side hustle, became a creative opportunity to pursue our eco centered life style. Using our skills from theater and costuming combined with our thrifty mid-West, South Suburban resources, we knew we could provide a quality and unique product online.
Enter Poshmark. A super simple, ultra social, fashion only platform for selling and buying the fashions we collect and curate.
We had an early celebration of these accomplishments with acstyled photo shoot with Hannah and Becca and newly introduced to RR, Niara.
We'll share more of our pretty pics as we move toward our fall launch in September and looking forward to another year of working with Posh and selling online. Shop with us on Poshmark or on Facebook!

We recycled exactly what was offered by our township refuse pickup service. But we knew we were overdue for breaking our habits on plastic bag usage. But in August of 2016, after an over rushed shopping trip, we were forced to examine our shopping habits and adopt cleaner habits, asap!
Despite our attempt to bring a canvas bag or ask for "paper" at the checkout (both of which we did) was a mute gesture toward eliminating the problems of plastics in our water. Unpacking our market bags, we looked at the plastic wrapped cucumbers, and every item we had selected placed in separate produce bags. All completely unnecessary, as most of these vegetables over-ripen when placed in plastic.
We are working on solutions for these problems like creating smaller market bags for easier transport, in recycled and/or waterproof fabrics, with a variety of styles. Hang with us as we work to bring more options to our community.
