Somewhere In The City: Viva La Thrifty on King Street!

Somewhere in the City is not just a blog, it's a cause. There is a need for community everywhere and it starts with getting involved in your city. We divide ourselves based on our political stance, our religion, our income, our sexual orientation, our pastime, our education but if we unite ourselves on our similarities we have the capacity to be so much more. The goal is not to challenge who you are, but to challenge who you will be to our city. A strong community fights for each other and not against each other. MetroJacksonville proudly presents their recent photo essay about Viva La Thrifty in Riverside! Join us for awesome photos after the Jump.

We’re loving all these grand additions to King Street in Riverside. It really seems to be the place to go for lunch, a snack, and vintage shopping. Who can’t resist a fine priced vintage tea pot, I can’t. This is Malori, super sweet and cute. We had to snatch her picture before we left with our buys. She’s been collecting vintage items for the past two years in hopes to open up her own shop. I think she’s in the perfect location and has really set herself up for success!








I kind of want to sing like Arielle when I went shopping in here, “Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat?” I did however, refrain because two girls with cameras singing Disney may have come off a little strange to Malori.





There is a ton of neat stuff in her shop. Every piece carries a little history which Malori can let you know about. She hasn’t been just selling cute items, she’s been collecting them so her knowledge is keen. Oh and let’s talk about prices, everything is researched then compared to prices on Ebay. You will never find a better steal on Ebay than you would in Viva La Thrifty. She also has great sales! So take a gander to King Street, welcome Viva La Thirfty to the neighborhood, and gawk at the beautiful items which can quite easily end up on your kitchen table.

Somewhere in the City is not just a blog, it's a cause. There is a need for community everywhere and it starts with getting involved in your city. We divide ourselves based on our political stance, our religion, our income, our sexual orientation, our pastime, our education but if we unite ourselves on our similarities we have the capacity to be so much more. The goal is not to challenge who you are, but to challenge who you will be to our city. A strong community fights for each other and not against each other. We exchange out pity for compassion, our hate for love and our selfishness for kindness. This is a call for action. Lets be a powerful community!



About  Morgan Thompson

Since I started this blog, I haven’t told you much about myself. So, lets start over; Hi, I’m Morgan! I started a Photography business over a year ago and from the beginning I knew that I  wanted to work with small businesses and entrepreneurs. I ran into a road block because I needed to make money and I loved doing things for free! So, I focused in on my other loves –wedding and portrait photography to make a living and put my first passion on the back burner. I stumbled upon a local blog called, “Create Like Crazy” and I was inspired to start a blog on my own! I have met so many awesome people these past couple of weeks and I now have the opportunity to help support and show some love to  the  people and businesses  in our community!

If you ever want to show me some love and support, Check out my photography website www.mothomp.com

And now for some random facts about me. I love my moccasins! if I’m not wearing them I’m either barefooted or wearing my rainbows. I obviously love my camera but now you know I’m a Nikon gal! My Breed Love guitar is my baby.  I occasionally write songs and sing and play at church. I also have a husband that I love dearly! My favorite part of the day is 6:30 when he gets home from work. The door opens, I smile at him, give him a big hug, he picks me up, cracks my back, and I kiss him on the cheek…favorite moment of every day. My two favorite places in Jax– Chomp Chomp and Maple Street!
