Subscribing to Secondhand Style, Sobriety and Startup Life in Philly with And We Evolve’s Liz Funk

With the recent announcement of The Real Real filing for IPO, it’s no question that secondhand fashion is having a serious moment. But for many of us, it’s been more than a thing for more than a little while. In fact, for many listening, shopping secondhand and reveling in thrift store and vintage finds is a way of life. It is for me, and it’s both that and a way of business for this week’s guest, the founder of a Philadelphia startup curating subscription boxes of like-new secondhand clothing.

Meet this week’s guest, Liz Funk, Founder of And We Evolve.
