Anchorage entrepreneur turns thrifting hobby into sustainable Black-owned business

Just like Macklemore, she’s poppin’ tags and making thrifting look good. Anchorage’s Aspen Raney took her passion for sourcing vintage clothing and turned it into an online, Black-owned business.

Kuration Collective launched on Instagram in 2017. It has since showcased her hauls and built quite the following. She makes a sustainable living by reselling her retro finds on the reselling app Depop.

Starting your own business? Raney says to believe in yourself and trust the process.

“You don’t have to be a pro at everything, but a little patience and willingness to learn will take you a long way,” she said.
