About the Owner
Michelle Caves’ love affair with clothing began at a young age, always mixing and matching various styles, she took an interest specifically in vintage apparel from the 1960-70s. She began buying and selling clothing online through websites like eBay from her home in Rochester, N.Y. Set on pursuing her passion, Michelle moved to New York City to attend The Laboratory Institute of Merchandising, a Manhattan college that specializes in the business of fashion. From here, she obtained her bachelor’s in fashion merchandising.
In 2009, Michelle and her boyfriend decided to leave their lives in Brooklyn for a quieter setting. Once settled in Beacon, N.Y., an entrepreneurial spirit drove her to try her hand at owning a boutique. Blackbird Attic was born on the east end of Main street with a specially curated selection of affordable modern, vintage, and handmade items.
