WEST ST. LOUIS COUNTY ( KTVI) -A unique reality show is filmed right here in St. Louis. ‘Thrift Shop Divas’ is a web series that follows the exploits of three women shopping at local Goodwill stores. They pick-up bargain clothes and turn them int beautiful outfits and upcycle furniture into beautiful home decor.
The three divas in the show are an 87-year-old seamstress and fashion designer named Naomi, a fashion blogger named Susannah and in interior designer named Jenny B. We introduce you to Naomi and Susannah.
Erik Light, producer for the show, says he got the idea after meeting Naomi at a Goodwill store. Naomi is energetic, entertaining and flamboyant, and Light knew that she was exactly the kind of personality that he could build a show around. He took the concept to Coolfire Media, the company behind such shows as Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s and Funeral Boss. After adding two more divas — Susannah, a fashion blogger and stylist and Jenny B, an interior designer — they had all they needed for a show.
