Bare.Thred is a secondhand shop dedicated to turning people's excess into outlets for creativity and style. We are not simply a retail store. We honor the original creator as well as the customer and partner. We redesign pieces into value, speak truth into identity, and bring into light the hidden injustices which face those we engage. Bare.Thred is a space curated to facilitate beautiful culture, encourage community, and impact the city through truth and artfulness.


We think of the Bare.Thred space as an environment that brings people together. To us, this space is about developing relationships, empowering others, and bringing awareness to the injustices of the clothing industry.

While we regularly curate our own events, this space is also available to anyone seeking to host an event in Knoxville. We envision this space to be utilized by the community- celebrating creativity and impact within our city.
