About

Vein of Gold is a teeny tiny collective based in Portland, Oregon. I started this website to sell my Classic T Shirts, which I started selling in 2018 after prompting from friends, who wanted to support my habit of gifting this garment- an everyday, year-round, organic cotton shirt. Sometimes, Vein of Gold will release a limited edition T in collaboration with a friend. Sometimes, we'll release a seasonal color. But, we'll always have the three Classic T's in white, ecru and black.

Vein of Gold is the idea of finding a single thread of beauty, hope, inspiration, and giving it a little tug to unveil more. This idea comes to fruition in finding one beautiful, well-made garment or object at a thrift store, indicating that someone of similar ilk, recently purged their closet or cupboard and there may be more. A kismet, one might call it. A vein of gold. Other times, Vein of Gold is a creative off-shoot of someone's "work day life" and comes to us in the form of hand blown glass objects that they make, just because they're fun. Vein of Gold has even popped its head up as event production, to create unique experiences- live music, multi-day romps exploring the splendors of Oregon, dinners under the stars, fake-wedding-pizza-party-dance-party photo shoots.

To support our community further, Vein of Gold commits 5% of its annual profit from sales of the Classic T to a local non-profit each year. To learn more about 2020’s selected organization, KSMocA, please visit them here. We’d also love you to consider adding a donation to any of your purchases on this site, to go directly to the year’s recipient.

Vein of Gold is a place to do it all. But mostly, it’s about a collective of friends who appreciate the same kind of stuff (and T shirts), and think you might too.

My cute Mom and Grandma, Taiwan, circa 1956ish. I credit my love to finding treasures, and my sense of style to my Mom (and probably Grandma. Look at her! I never got to meet her.) As a kid, Mom would take me hunting at all the estate sales in San Francisco's Sunset District after violin lessons.
