There will be some sheepskins, denim, cool mens jackets, special books, pieces from the 1970s (of course), homewares for your space and all kinds of other unique finds from my life on The Road this year!
Check back here on www.agirlnamedleney.com this weekend to get a head start on your Christmas shopping and maybe treat yourself to something special too.
Want to know one of the things I’ve been up to since I’ve been in Portland? Read More
I’ve been working with Anna of @experimentalvintage and photographing this months curated vintage rug collection!
Can we talk about a dream job?
Hanging out in the beautiful space of @homebodyportland, taking photos of pretty old things, surrounded by plants and inspiring bad-ass women who run their own businesses?
Yea. I’m in my element.
It’s such an honor to work for and with people I admire so wholeheartedly.
I have been in California for part of August, and while there I picked up a few vintage finds for folkling.
Shooting these pieces while driving up the Pacific Coast Highway was such a fun artistic endeavor for me.
It is combining many of my loves, photography, vintage, travel, all into one.
I appreciate all of you who’ve supported Folkling over the last two years of its existence. It’s a venture that I get so much enjoyment out of and not only something I preach, but practice. Read More
I truly believe in the sustainability and ethical consciousness in buying secondhand first and appreciating that which already exists in the world.
Additionally, you are fueling my life on The Road in more ways than one, and that’s a dream for which I cannot thank you enough.
If you are interested in any of these pieces, shoot me a direct message through the Folkling instagram.
Thank you to everyone who sees value in shopping slow.
for quite some time now i've been holding this idea of doing film photo essays on various artists i love and admire and sharing them here on the journal. Read More
film is a format of photography that i increasingly fall in love with as the years go by.
indeed, i often prefer it over its digital counterpart. while i shoot digitally for work most of the time, there is a mystical, etherial and nostalgic way about film that just can't ever quite be replicated with digital images.
for these reasons, as well as the often imperfect and one-time-shot aspects of the medium, i have come to treasure my film photos in a way i'm not sure i'll ever feel about any other kind of photo.
yesterday i re-shared this post of photos from Anna's home in Portland Oregon, but it wasn't until recently that i developed the remaining rolls from this trip. so in addition to her lovely home, here you can see some vignettes from her studio space as well.
some new pieces are coming to Folking over the weekend so be sure to check out the instagram for them! in the mean time, here are some iphone snaps of some favorites from this past month. Read More
also be sure to get on the actual instagram app, not just the web version, and follow the folkling instagram stories! i post a lot of videos on there of pieces i haven't even posted on the grid, as well as extra details of posted pieces. most of the sales have been moving through that truth be told, so be sure to keep up with it!
