Vintage Search Engines and NYC Vintage Maps (with Liisa Jokinen of the Gem App)

On Episode 15 of The Hand Me Up Club, Lindsay speaks with sustainable, Finnish icon, Liisa Jokinen about the creation of the Gem App, the first search engine dedicated to vintage and thrift.  Gem currently has 8 million+ items listed and was born from the idea of looking for specific vintage items. Liisa also created the NYC Vintage Map, after she first moved to America and wanted to record and rank the vintage thrift scene in New York. Lindsay and Liisa go over some of their favorite thrift in NYC and talk about how Liisa’s Scandinavian culture influenced her personal consumption.   You can find the NYC vintage map at nycvintagemap.com, the Gem app (@gem.search) in the Apple store, the Google play store and at https://gem.app . Find Liisa’s street photography at nyc-looks.com or on Instagram @nyc_looks All this information and more is available on The Hand Me Up Club’s website, www.handmeup.club
