Mission & Values
At Death Trip Vintage, we stand for a few principles and values that are simple yet imperative to us, and impactful for many. We empower people to dress in the way that they feel comfortable and confident....in a way that represents who they are. We fully support and stand up for LGBTQ+ communities. Our clothing gives our shoppers the opportunity to dress in a way that allows them to express their true selves and feel lit up. If you're here then you've found your place.
Our mission isn't just to make people look good and feel good, we want to uplift and support our community. Over the years we've made donations to several charities, campaigns and mutual aid funds that support black, indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals and communities. Some recipients of our donations include: Magic & Melanin, People over Profits, SD Black Queer Housing Fund, and House of Resilience, La Chula Crew. We don’t just talk the talk, we walk it.
Lastly, Death Trip Vintage aims to reduce our impact on mama earth. Buying vintage, second-hand clothing reduces waste from fast fashion and big box stores by a staggering amount. Leave the annual styles out of the landfill, and pick out something timeless.
Come as you are, dress as you please, and feel good while doing it.
