About Taylor- the Owner/Founder of Portland Revibe
Throughout my life, I have become increasingly aware of many major factors impacting our overall ability to create a more sustainable future.
Many home decor suppliers have slowly transitioned away from creating long-lasting products to more fast fashion items that fuel increased consumerism.
As we consume more, our systems to recylce and repurpose these items have not been able to keep up with efficient and/or effective recycling service solutions.
Furthermore, local trades across the US are being lost. These skilled individuals are vital resources to refurbish second hand items and/or reinvent materials to build higher-quality products that can stand the test of time.
All of these realizations have pushed me to make more eco-sustainable changes in my own everyday life to consume less, reuse more, learn new skills, and support local small business communities and makers. These lifestyle values form the foundation of Portland Revibe’s mission.
Estate sale shopping with my Mom is one of my favorite past and present times. I love exploring the houses, learning about the history of the items we discover and the thrill of the hunt to find the perfect pieces to create a unique living space. It brings us such joy to find previously loved items with history that were built with such care. We love working with our fellow reseller community and are always learning and growing together. The enthusiasm for learning about new items and celebrating the second hand movement together brings me such joy.
