Our Story


Humble Coalition is an online boutique providing handpicked vintage and secondhand clothing, incorporating an active, free-spirited coastal California lifestyle. We want to make secondhand shopping more accessible by providing a curated boutique experience.

My name is Shalini Desroches and I have always been interested in vintage clothing and enjoyed the unpredictability of finding that unique and eclectic piece. In recent years, the secondhand market has grown tremendously and has become more mainstream. One reason being that there is awareness about the fashion industry’s role related to climate change & sustainability, and how strategies such as purchasing secondhand help relieve some of the adverse environmental impacts. This further solidified my commitment towards “thrifting” and eventually led to the evolution of Humble Coalition. Our goal is to provide a platform for seasoned fashionistas and rookie "thrifters" who want to embrace this movement but are not ready to dive into vintage stores and flea markets themselves. Let us find the hidden gems for you.

Thank you for being part of this journey and happy shopping.
