Me, It’s On With DeVonne!
What a way to start the new year!
The swap was a huge success! Thank you to EVERYONE! Those who came, those who helped, those who shared the event information with others, those who sent their well wishes even those that couldn’t make it, those who donated money just to support my passion, my dreams. I thank you! I love you and I mean it with everything when I saw that I was truly humbled by the experience.
When you have a dream or a vision and you put it out to the world it puts you in a very vulnerable place! You don’t know how the world with receive or perceive. So you step out on faith and go for it anyway, then to be lifted by so many supporters and loved ones! My heart runs over with gratitude.
If you couldn’t make it out you were truly missed! In partnership with Out of The Closet Thrift Store, I hosted my very first thrift swap- Let me give you the run down of the yesterday’s festivities!
Doors opened at 1 :
As the afternoon warmed up so did the vibes in the beautiful space. ( Better Than Jam’s Store and Studio was such a perfect space! Was it not y’all? )
“Clap once if you hear me… ” lol
So many pieces were swapped and so many were donated. Dropping pieces off this week, think I may need a van! Lol
The feedback that I have received about this event has me speechless. One swapper suggested I have one each season another said I need to do it MONTHLY! I was flattered but moreso overcome with an aligning feeling that there is a space in this universe for my passion… And there are others in my community that share that very same passion.
Special Thanks to Ally ( could you believe we didn’t take any photos!) who stepped in last min and hit the ground running! She was the one taking all the awesome pics! You were a blessing to me!

All of my sisters and cuzzos, friends, my vendors Lisa & Bri, thank you to the bloggers and friends Sapphira, Noah, Coco who wrote and promoted the event, Shannon also a blogger who has always supported me and brought took over Blavity snapchat for the event, my church family Kilita, I love you big sis!
