Tracy started up-cycling clothes as a creative outlet while working full time as a professional geologist. Fast forward to 2012 when Shannon(Tracy's sister) moved back to Arkansas and reunited the duo. Together they began playing, up-cycling, and selling clothes online and at local festivals. When a local shop owner fell in love with fun and one-of-a-kind looks, the sisters joined forces with her. After her retirement, ReThreadz boutique, now known as rtz boutique, was born. A 30000 sq ft brick & mortar shop was filled with boutique clothing, up-cycled fashion, accessories, and local artisan marketplace.
