While perusing Orange Crush Exports in the cash & carry section at Capsule Show Las Vegas earlier this year, I stumbled upon one-of-a-kind Levi’s 501s. These jeans were made for me; not only were they my size but these 501’s were decked out in hand-painted detailing that enveloped perfectly distressed denim. With no ATMS in sight and a booming crowd of vintage aficionados shopping Jess Tart’s immaculately curated selection of threads, a sudden case of FOMO emerged. “Cash only.”
The nearest ATM outside of The Venetian Ballroom was miles away. As I stood there amidst a swarm of shoppers, staring longingly at my dream jeans, a woman exclaimed “Those are a great find!” We chatted for a few minutes about a mutual love for vintage denim, she offered to rescue me in my moment of distress and spot me the cash. Then, she introduced me to Square Cash (aka my savior), a no frills app compatible with iOS and Android that makes money sharing so simple, I appointed her as the Jean Genie. Within seconds money was quickly deposited into her account. Dreams do come true.
A few weeks later I excitedly "paid it forward' as I handed two twenty dollar bills to a vendor at the Williamsburg Flea Market for a cashless friend who found her sole-mate and she repaid me using Square Cash.
