Bethany Nixon

Bethany Nixon is a mom, wife, vintage collector, and crafter that leans a little to the weird side. The former organizer of Baar Bazaar in Detroit and thrifting addict makes notebooks, jewelry, embroidered art, clothes and accessories from all things vintage and then blogs about & sells them at RewareVintage.com, along with untouched vintage clothing. She is also on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest for more inspiration, behind the scenes pictures, and possible oversharing. bethany@handmadedetroit.com
