Our Story

Giving up your day job to become a full-time artist is risky, especially when you have 6 kids and endless bills piling up. Brittany Johnson, owner and creator of Monroe Washington’s Vintage & Rust boutique followed her childhood dream and made that happen. How? The way all great things happen… by accident! After being told that her doodles and sketches wouldn’t put money on the table, she ditched her aspirations of pursuing a career in something creative and fell into fields deemed more secure. Brittany settled for various jobs in banks and hospitals before she really had her “ah ha!” moment.
