Hi! My name is Alicia and first charmed into buying vintage items wayyy back in the late 1980's while pursuing visual art & design education. I earned my BFA • Bachelor's of Fine Art, majoring in Visual Communications Art & Design at Indiana University's, John Herron School of Art. I especially loved thrifting vintage mechanical items for sculptural art. That's pretty much when the funky spark for vintage started shining bright in me!
Over the years I have amassed a serious collection of shiny objects along with functional / mechanical items - ranging from silver serving plates to cast iron printing presses and everything in between, To this day, I am always thrilled to find a rogue Dorthy Thorpe piece for my glassware collection!!!
I launched THRIFTY*Glitz during the Pandemic of 2020 at the suggestion and guidance of my amazing friend, Ami. Many thanks to her for encouraging me to dare to go online and on camera to bring my creative perspective to the people!
Please enjoy the THRIFTY*Glitz COLLECTION!!! I ship from coast to coast at discounted rates in the United States. So, if you're looking for jaw-dropping / eye-popping vintage... IT"S HERE!!!
