Bringing together vintage and designer looks for an affordable price, Yuri is redefining what thrift shopping is with one of a kind authentic fashion and lifestyle pieces. Aside from her vintage garments, we can look forward to Yuri's themed restocks which will be sure to turn an average shopping experience to a fun one! We took a minute to chat and get a look at Yuri beyond the market!

 Q: Lets start by introducing yourself. Who is Yuri? Where did the name Yuri's Market come from?

A: Yes, Hi I’m Yuri! I own Yuri’s Market the resale and consignment company. Who is Yuri? Yuri is Yuri’s Market. I am my brand. Everything I sell, is who I am. Yuri’s Market came from my name Yuri which means Lily in Japanese. I added Market because Yuri’s Market encompasses everything Yuri and the shit I like. From Clothing, to Art to books to furniture. 

 

Q: If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?

A: Multi-faceted. I love so many things, from Art to Finance. 

 

Q: What inspired you to become a fashion and lifestyle buyer?

A: I’ve been buying and selling resale since I was in high-school. My mother owned a consignment shop on the south side of Chicago for years. I’ve worked at multiple consignment shops. It’s embedded into who Yuri is. 

 

Q: What was your biggest obstacle with getting Yuri's Market off of the ground?

A: My biggest obstacle is that the industry is becoming over saturated, but I’m here to bring a different twist to the Resale Industry. 

 

Q: What is one item you can’t live without?

A: A BELT. I always love incorporating belts to my wardrobe. 

 

Q: If you could only shop at one place for the rest of your life, where would it be?

A: Dover Street Market ( the one in Tokyo ) My favorite store on the planet, and of course Yuri’s Market for your resale needs. 

 

Q: One of your recent restock was 70’s themed- will future restocks also have themes?

A: Yes, every restock will have some sort of theme. Every drop is a new collection. 

 

Q: Besides running Yuri's Market, how do you like spending your free time?

A: I love traveling, I love eating, I love shopping, and I love going to wineries. I love enriching myself in learning about new cultures. I just love living and having fun! 

 

Q: Is there a process in which you choose the items which make it onto your site?

A: I don’t really have a process. Its more about just shopping ALOT and having great consignors. If I see a piece and I get a good feeling about it, I acquire it. 

 

Q: Do you prefer to be behind the scenes or in front of the camera? Why?

A: Behind the camera. I’m a bit shy of the camera, and behind the scenes is really where all the magic happens. 

 

Q: What is your favorite piece that you have acquired for Yuri's Market to date?

A: I just got this Alexander McQueen pleated asymmetrical Mini Skirt. It’s to DIE FOR! Everything about the skirt is perfection. The design, the way it fits. Everything! 

 

Q: Where do you see Yuri's Market in 5 years?

A: Yuri’s Market will definitely be much more than just consignment and resale company. Just watch and wait. Just know I see millions in my future. Lol
