What’s in a name?

“Old School” may be overused but I figured, it’s very suitable for my store.

I grew up in a house turned preschool since my mom’s a teacher and she wanted to build her own school.  This school has expanded into something bigger so our family had to move out and leave everything else behind.  The preschool on the ground floor remains while our 2nd floor (where my room used to be) is being used as storage room.  This saddens me as I have so many memories from that place.

People who used to be my mom’s pupils now refer to the preschool as the “old school” (among others).  This is not how I came up with the name, though.  Since I’m going to sell pre-loved/thrifted/vintage items (however you want to call them) that I find in my closet and other thrift stores in the Metro,  I figured that I might as well open up a physical store at the “old school” while selling “old school” items.  Eh?  Eh?

Last Friday, April 27th, I finally decided to have a photoshoot at the old school with some of my 4th year HS students.

We did it indoors because there were just too much school materials (e.g. blackboard, toys, paint) that we could use for the shoot.  Here are some of the photos I took (and a teaser for what I’ll be selling).
