Our Story

What does GSB stand for?

Grandma Sue's Basement! When I was starting out I wanted to to incorporate some of the people who got me into thrifting and second hand! I grew up going to garage sales with my Grandma Sue and Flea Markets with my Grandma Janie! I grew up learning how to shop affordable and learning how helpful recycling items can be. A few months before we began my Grandma Sue passed, so I wanted to do something to make her proud. So now part of her legacy lives on and my Grandma Janie still helps me out with sewing and clothing repair! She also has dibs on all Tweety items we find. 

The Plan: Our goal here is simple, give you access to thrifted clothes without breaking the bank. 

We know everyone loves thrifting and saving the environment at the same time, but we also know not everyone has time to do that. Our goal is to eliminate the amount of clothes ending up in landfills. While at the same time slowing down the amount of new clothes purchased everyday. We won't have crazy mark ups like a lot of vintage sellers, allowing you to shop and not have to spend $150 on a single shirt.

Who am I?

My name is Jake and I decided about half a year ago that I wanted to make a difference while doing something I love. Then it hit me, I noticed the amount of new clothes everyone was buying, especially online through fast fashion! It made me start to think about the amount of clothes that go to waste in the world because everyone wants the new shiny thing. So why not make thrifted stuff shiny? I have grown up at thrift sales and garage sales with my Grandmas, and it was one of my favorite things to do with them. So I decided to go all in on thrifting.
