ABOUT EMERGENCY MOBILE THRIFT SHOP
I created Emergency Mobile Thrift Shop in June 2015 after managing my eBay store Janstreasures099 since 2003. I became interested in reselling and online sales even more after the birth of my oldest son Luis Janel in Dec. 2006 when I was forced to take time off of work to raise my newborn baby.
I became intrigued by the amount of people worldwide who like thrifting. I stayed home for 1year and during this time my online sales covered all of my bills. I was amazed at the success which further motivated me to start shopping at estate sales and offering consumers the designer brands they loved at affordable prices. I began using my style and fashion sense to pick out outfits that I believed would sell. In 2010 I began my career as a Police Officer for the NYPD and had my 2nd child Adonis by then.
My world as a mother, primary provider and visionary with dreams of becoming an entrepreneur were put on hold due to the vigorous training, lifestyle and time constraints. Until finally in 2015, after developing the style and deciding on the direction that I wanted my life to go in I launched my mobile thrift store. I bought a retired fully loaded ambulance and converted it into a mobile thrift shop. Every compartment inside and outside of the truck is now a closet or drawer filled with men, women and children’s clothing, shoes, cosmetics, neckties, belts, books, party supplies, eye wear, jackets, hats and even toys. There is something for every age group inside. The exterior lights are awesome when we park at flea markets or private events during evening hours. There is a speaker and Motorola radio system inside as well. Emergency Mobile Thrift Shop is the 1st of its kind in New York. I hope to help others dress and feel good about themselves wearing designer, handmade or vintage items they can buy at affordable prices.
