Starting Southern Trash and doing your own thing: A chat with Milly Baine

Editor’s note:
Hey, this is the first post highlighting an independently own business on Rose Tint, something I’m extremely excited and passionate about. While it’s local to me (based in Alabama) Southern Trash has ways to buy online, making it local to anyone. Slow fashion (as opposed to sweatshop produced fast fashion) exists to counteract our growing waste as a world. Milly has built a business created on the slow fashion concept and I can’t wait for you to hear about it. Enjoy!

Milly started Southern Trash when she was a little girl.

Not the actual store, but the idea, even if she didn’t know it.

“My grandmother was super into thrifting and we would go to thrift stores all the time,” Milly Baine, the owner and founder of Florence, Alabama’s newest vintage store, Southern Trash, told me on a hot August afternoon.

A love letter to Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk and varied albums

Tusk is here via Super Seventies

Why I thrift

I haven’t always loved thrift shopping.


I say that because I’ve been thrift shopping for a long long time.

Be it the divider between the lower and upper middle classes, or just my mom loving to get a deal, going to thrift stores and flea markets was a part of my childhood I always hated.

I distinctly remember always griping about the dusty smell making my “nose itch” and yearning for the chance to go to the mall. But, shopping at the mall for a 7-year-old is neither prudent or sustainable…I soon later found out. Continue reading “Why I thrift”

Soft EP // JADE a.k.a. best local vibes you’ll hear all day


I get trapped in Instagram sometimes. It is, hands down, my favorite social media platform I have. With all the negativity surrounding it (i.e. using it as a “show off” vanity selfie generator or to unfairly compare yourself to filtered perfection), I’ve actually found that Instagram has kept me in touch with some of my coolest and most creative friends from high school.
