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.

To support our community, 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.

We'd love to hear from you! Please be in touch! Email veinofgoldpdx@gmail.com.

My cute Mom and Grandma, Taiwan, circa 1956. 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.
