The Newbie’s Guide To Becoming A Master Thrifter
September 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
In this unique, practical, and action-oriented workshop, thrifting expert, Mya Price, will be teaching attendees everything they need to know in order to become a master thrifter, and create the wardrobe of their dreams entirely from budget-friendly, environmentally-conscious thrifted and up-cycled clothes.
From navigating different types of thrift and second hand retailers (both in-person and online), to secrets for finding the best items, to snagging the designer or high-quality staples to build your grown-up wardrobe, this workshop will have everything you need to change your relationship to shopping and create your ideal closet while spending less money than ever.
As a bonus, this workshop will also teach you about the other side of the coin: making extra income by thrifting your own clothes, so you can master both ends of the thrifting experience.

Mya Price’s Bio:
Mya Price believes in the power of sustainable fashion and style through the world of one-of-a-kind vintage selections. She is a Kentucky native who moved to Washington, D.C., three years ago to continue expanding her plus size vintage brand, More Than Your Average. She started her business More Than Your Average (MTYA) in October of 2017 because she observed a gap in the clothing selection for women considered to be plus-size. Mya made it her mission to start a business that celebrates women’s power, individuality, and fashion interest. She recognizes that through the way we dress, we can impact others and our environment. When we look good, we feel good. When we feel good, we generate positive energy that impacts the way we make others feel. She also exuberates personal style through the power of color and boldness and continues to inspire that through others.
In addition to running More Than Your Average, Mya works for Feeding America, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, working with an umbrella of 200 food banks across our nation. Mya enjoys both her full-time commitment and also running her business. Through each, she has grown professionally, personally, and creatively.
