PLEASANT FOLK is an assortment of vintage, art and craft both created and curated by shop owner Rae Pleasant.
Antique, retro, vintage, and outmoded clothing, accessories, and objects are fairly sourced at the ground level. Many pieces are gently cleaned or refurbished to preserve or update their condition. Color, pattern, material, and fashion history define the collection.
Craft items are original designs handmade by the shop owner unless otherwise stated. Inspiration comes from the rustic nature of the South West and Down Under for a classic and grounded aesthetic with respect to global cultures. Materials are sourced for being natural, recycled, scrap, or vintage such as linen, cotton, and leather.
Illustrations and artwork are created by the shop owner unless otherwise stated. Story-telling, fashion, and nature inspire these images.
Pleasant is an African American Dallas resident employed in the arts and heritage field after earning university degrees in art history and dance performance. She has travelled to New Zealand and throughout the Southwest which was very inspirational. Pleasant enjoys the practice of craft and visual art in her spare time as well as collecting vintage and antiques.
