Who We Are
Stash Collective opened its doors in April of 2013 in Harrisburg PA and is co-owned and co-operated by Haley Harned, Jen Merrill, and Anela Bence-Selkowitz.
We carry a wide selection of vintage, handmade, repurposed and hand-altered clothing, accessories, housewares and furniture pieces. As a collective, our common goal is to bring new life to older items that still have a lot of life left. We believe in supporting local art, providing reasonably priced merchandise in a wide range of styles and sizes, and offering customers an alternative and sustainable shopping experience by up-cycling what's been left behind.
The Stash Gals
Born : Pennsylvania
Other Work : Freelance Editorial, Portrait, and Architectural Photographer
Vintage : Haley has been a thrift store, yard sale, and flea market shopper her entire life. At first not by free will, but by the frugal nature of her mother. As a teen she realized the value of American and handmade clothing and goods and has been hooked ever since.
Haley was born and raised in Northwestern Pennsylvania. From 2004-2008 she traveled to the South to attend The Savannah College of Art and Design and received a BFA with a focus on photography and drawing. After college she came back to her native state of Pennsylvania. She worked in Pittsburgh as a freelance commercial photographer, retoucher, and digital printmaker for five years. Haley moved to Harrisburg in 2012 and was instantly inspired by the small but mighty local art community and powerful female professionals in the area. www.haleyharned.com
Born : California
Vintage : 1996-1999 thrift store shopping addict, 2005-2013 vintage Etsy store owner, 2012 Vintage Closet Nights held at Studio A
Upon moving from Los Angeles in 2010 and having to start from scratch, Anela began again by transferring her vintage Etsy store from LA to HBG. She started photography back up with a new venture in Boudoir and Pinup and soon after, opened Studio A with local photographer Alan Wycheck. When Stash work and photo gigs subside, she hosts gallery openings for local artists at the studio and works on her own fine art photo projects. anelaphotographer.com
Born : Pennsylvania
Vintage : Jen fell in love with thrifting in high school, much to her mother's discontent. Anytime she'd wander through the door with plastic bags stuffed full, her mom would roll her eyes and ask, "What did you buy now?" After rocking an altered vintage pink satin dolman sleeve number (which she swears mimicked the silhouette of a F/W '07 RTW Lanvin look) to her senior year homecoming, she was officially hooked.
Jen graduated with a Bachelors of Humanities in Communications from Pennsylvania State University in 2012. A Mechanicsburg native, she now lives in Harrisburg with her toddler-aged daughter, Audrey, who is a constant source of inspiration. And clutter. But mainly the inspiration thing. jen-merrill.com
She's not with us anymore, but shout out to one of the other original Stash founders, Jessica Flynn!
