Welcome to Ragz and Relics - your destination for funky vintage and preloved gems that are just as unique as you are! Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Ragz and Relics began exclusively on Instagram as a passion project for the owner, Lauren, as a way to share her love for eclectic apparel, accessories and objects of the past. Every item is handpicked by her with love to help you stand out, express yourself and feel your best.
Yours truly, the sole person running this show, Lauren here! I just want to say a quick thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here and supporting Ragz and Relics. It means the world!
I started Ragz and Relics in March of 2021 as a creative outlet and escape from the mundane routine I was stuck in. After learning about all the detrimental impacts of fast fashion, I realized my appreciation for vintage could go hand in hand with my desire to promote sustainable fashion. Knowing that there was an entire world out there filled with hidden gems, I took my thrifting/estate sale hobby to the next level. I began treasure hunting all over Nashville and started my own business so that I could bring happiness to others and help the environment at the same time♻️
I have always had a fascination for old things. What type of life did a garment or object lead before it came into my possession? Was it loved and cherished? Was it neglected and underappreciated in the back of a closet or storage unit? Being able to give these pieces a new life and continue their story is such a rewarding feeling. However, it’s even more rewarding to witness the joy I am able to bring to customers when these pieces begin their new journeys with them🥰
My eclectic & colorful fashion choices have always been a little ✨extra✨, but embracing my love for spicy clothes has helped me to express myself and gain the confidence I never had growing up. I hope that the pieces on this shop can help you do the same :)
Here at Ragz and Relics, our mission is to help you stand out and express yourself one funky piece at a time, while also giving unique vintage and secondhand pieces the chance to live and be loved again. We aim to provide an inclusive, enjoyable shopping experience for all. Regardless of size or gender, we have something for everyone!
