Our Story

The house on Middle Rose Street is where I half-way grew up.

My Grandma Mildred lived there for 58 years and saw 5 generations pass through. It was a second home for us – a (very) humble home where dinners were stretched and clothes were passed between the grandchildren for embarrassing, trend-ignoring lengths of time. It’s where we learned, via hand-me-downs, that used could be as good as new.

We’re continuing the tradition – with a bit more style – at Middle Rose Exchange.

We search thrift stores, consignment shops, and the closets of our most stylish friends to create the collection you see here. (We’re hoping to include fashion and decor from independent artists very soon.)

Our social life

We’re on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest @ShopMiddleRose, so please follow us and share with your friends!
