Entrepreneurial College Student Makes Thrift Shopping Easy & Available to the Masses with a Curated Online Thrift Store
College student, Shawn Beach, launches Dope Junkyard, a revolutionary shopping experience that offers people a convenient way to purchase stylish & good-quality thrift merchandise. Dope Junkyard features a curated selection of used and vintage apparel, accessories, & home décor, along with an eclectic collection of new merchandise specially made & sourced from different parts of the world.
The decision to launch Dope Junkyard was born out of a realization inspired by the young & energetic fashion entrepreneurs of the show, How To Make It In America. “After watching a few episodes of that show, I realized what I really wanted to do. I always loved fashion & people compliment me and know me for it. I woke up with a name and one idea lead to more ideas until finally, Dope Junkyard was born,” says Beach. Eventually, the young student & entrepreneur wants to open a brick & mortar store in Los Angeles. However, he has decided to postpone that until after he gains more knowledge & traction. “Opening a boutique in LA is my dream. But I figured I should first start small & continue to grow every day with knowledge and even more experience. I think an online shop is the best way to do that because I was able to launch quickly with very little start up cost & overhead expenses,” says Beach. This “start small, expand later” strategy proves to be working well for the young fashion entrepreneur, especially since he has a profitable businesses before even graduating from college.
Although Dope Junkyard just launched in (November, 2012), it is quickly growing as a recognized online retailer for thrift & new merchandise. Shawn Beach plans to launch pop-up shops in the Los Angeles area within the next year, as well as adding furniture and artwork into his inventory mix online later in the Fall of 2013. Dope Junkyard will release further news and updates about these initiatives through:
