Jamie Wong, owner and curator of Raggedy Threads, a successful vintage clothing boutique with locations in Los Angeles and New York sits down to talk to me about growing up Chinese American in San Gabriel and Rancho Cucomonga. We discuss childhood, the teen years and how she first discovered a love for collecting and selling vintage and fell into a career thanks to some very nice local business owners and some not so nice men in corporate America.
