About

The Secret Catalog is a mail order print catalog that features limited edition goods by small, independent brands. Curated by Adrienne Antonson of STATE, the catalog features clothing, accessories, home goods, artwork, and more, delivered right to your door.
The goals of the catalog are simple: with all the time we spend looking at screens, an object like a print catalog connects us to something tactile – it helps us stop, consider, and be present. Our intention is for the Secret Catalog to be an experience. Along with gorgeous photo spreads of covetable goods, it also contains extra stories and treasures we hope will surprise and delight. After all, the keen anticipation of waiting for an exciting piece of mail is a feeling we all know and love. Combine that with the old fashioned wonder associated with a mail order catalog and there’s nothing quite like the Secret Catalog.
Each issue, we invite designers and artists to make work exclusively for the catalog. The makers are encouraged to create fresh work that inspires and excites them, something they’ve never made before. The catalog is a wild and free creative space that aspires to motivate our collaborators to take risks and to try something new. The results are pure magic as each issue has grown bigger and better than the one before.

I lost a bunch of followers yesterday with my post asking white business owners to think about how we benefit from our white privilege in our business. This follow up by @thehoodwitch is everything. #Repost @money.witch with @get_repost ・・・ Yesterday I interacted with quite a number of people who said some variation of this: “i belong to _____ group that you are saying has privilege, but i am not privileged/ i have not led a privileged life.” So lez talk about it. All privilege means is that you are Not Being Oppressed Because Of a certain aspect of your existence. So on the topic of race, if you are white, you are not being oppressed because of being white, which means you are privileged in that way. Because people of color ARE being oppressed because of the body they are inhabiting. On the topic of size, if you are small/thin, you are not being oppressed because of being thin, which means you are privileged in that way. Because people who’s bodies are larger than consensus-acceptable size ARE being oppressed because of the body they are inhabiting. That’s literally all it means. You are not being oppressed on the basis of. So because existence and identity are intersectional (citation to Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw), you can have privilege in certain parts of your existence and experience oppression in others. For example, you can be a poor white cis woman who is experiencing oppression on the basis of gender and class And Also experiencing privilege on the basis of race and cisgender identity. Oppression is systemic. It is not about personal bias. So you can be privileged and experience personal bias against you. But the difference is that when you are experiencing oppression, the entire culture has been trained to be biased against you, and to see that bias as normal, commonsensical, or factual. So it doesn’t matter if you don’t personally see or “experience” your privilege. It doesn’t matter if you feel privileged. It is your placement within a system that we all exist within. People also have different experiences of seeing, experiencing or feeling ways in which we are oppressed. Cont.'d in comments

That's a wrap on 2018! Im so grateful for the friendships, hardships, work and challenges, without which I would shrivel and parish. Being able to sit in the sand after this last day of work, listening to waves crash at my feet is a dream. I feel so fortunate to spend the last working day of the year with people I love. The losses were tough but without them I'd have no time or energy to nurture the coming opportunities. Bring it 2019, I'm fucking ready for ya

This. Whew! Especially this time of year we're reflecting and hopefully already doing the work. For those of you who aren't, please start to look within and see how your whiteness (privilege) has gotten you to where you are. I've spent a great deal of the past couple years actively working on dismantling my own shit. Please read below as @money.witch nailed it. #exercisethedemonsofwhiteness #Repost @money.witch with @get_repost ・・・ This list was created by @feminineshift and showed up in my feed through the lovely @holy_sponge . If you are a white woman entrepreneur, especially in the healing arts, instead of acting/commenting reactionarily, can you spend a day or three reflecting on ways that this might be showing up in your business? I see it in my own. This is an exposure and critique of systemic bias. All privileged people (for example my self) are responsible for understanding and dismantling systemic bias, even as we are simultaneously aware of how overwhelmingly incomplete we will likely be. White fragility is a form of white delusions of grandeur (aka white supremacy) and means an emotional intolerance for withstanding conversations about race and systemic racism or oppression. Fragile comments not to post below include but are not limited to variations on: "not all white women" "not all skinny people" "don't fight hate with hate" "I agree but I don't like how you said it" "this hurts my feelings". As a white person, when systemic oppression is exposed, my job is to process any personally difficult feelings that arise and then integrate that information into my concept of reality. That's the job. That's part of this incarnations spiritual assignment if you are in a white body that's reading this post. Exorcise the demons of whiteness. That's the job.
