The Everything Store

The Everything Store is a one stop shop for vintage jewelry, clothing and accessories, handpicked for you with love from Bria!

Tell me about how you originally got interested in vintage goods, Bria.

I fell in love with vintage items when my mom and aunt went through their old jewelry boxes... hearing their stories and all of the events surrounding the pieces made it so much more special to me than any new piece you could buy in a store. I love the history of vintage and I appreciate my customers who love it as much as I do!

What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
My favorite thing to do is spend time with my boyfriend, friends and family. I'm currently juggling a full college schedule (studying Sociology and English) and my Etsy shop keeps me busy, so any extra time I have is spent surrounding myself with people I love.

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your shop?
Parting with pieces! It's hard for me to list some things because I fall in love with their beauty and the stories behind them.

What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
I love the vintage bangles I have in my shop right now. They're perfect if you only want to wear one piece of jewelry because they're bold but they easily mesh with an outfit.
etched brass bangle
faux gold criss-cross bangle
faux gold bangle bracelet

When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I still have a lot of growing up to do, but I always wanted to be a published writer and I still do! My current plans are to major in sociology and work for a non-profit on the East Coast. Etsy has been great to me and I want to continue to sell vintage and hopefully expand to photography and original jewelry soon.

What other shops out there do you love?
I bought a gift set from Mood Maiden Soap for my mom for a Christmas present and the soap is absolutely incredible! Notable Notions is also a great resource for jewelry boxes and other supplies and Leasvintage is my favorite vintage shop- the dresses I bought from her were my first Etsy purchases!

What does your future hold?
Finishing school and expanding my Etsy shop is currently on the horizon for me. I'm taking a beach glass jewelry class this winter and hopefully soon I'll be opening a new store, selling beach glass jewelry and photography from Lake Michigan!
