The pictures above speak volumes about this woman (who do you know who looks this great at nine months pregnant?!). She is an artist in every sense of the word. I am fortunate enough to be able to call her "friend", and have been inspired by her determination and artistry ever since I met her more than ten years ago. We have reconnected as of late, and as usual the creative energy between us was palpable and impossible to ignore. Makkah owns the vintage shop Makkah's Crushed Velvet in Baltimore, Maryland, where she houses a collection of vintage clothing that span the decades and transcends cultures. Many people may also know her from the Patapsco Flea Market, where she sells the best wares in the entire place. I asked Makkah to allow me to interview her, to share the wonderment that is her, with the world. Behold, Makkah.
Girls of Plenty: Tell me about your store, Makkah.
