Together, we are more than we are separately
Aimee McQuilkin (she/her)
Founder of Betty’s Divine and co-founder of Divine Trash Vintage, Aimee has been a Missoulian since 1995. Fashion, per se, doesn’t interest her as much as costumes and playing dress up does, thanks to her Gramma and her bottomless trunk of garage-sale-procured play clothes. Old things, telling stories, studying maps, smelling things, dropping single track, eating food, reading, laughing and adventuring around in her fj6o are her passions. Current style inspirations are the village witch, Russian babushkas, TSA agents and rock n roll Moms.
Ree Vanderkarr (they/them)
Ree is an artist, expert cat whisperer, and tree hugger. Growing up in Sandpoint, ID, they became all artsy and outdoorsy just like all the other lovely folks that inhabit that beautiful place. They moved to Missoula on a whim and couldn’t be happier with the many wonderful surprises that this city has brought into their life. Ree aspires to live a nomadic lifestyle in a van with her cat, Fable, living off her art as she travels daily. They love to take lazy walks by the river and explore the mountains in their free time, which is currently the main inspiration for their artwork. Ree can be seen around town crouching behind a dorky fantasy book at a coffee shop or frantically searching for the next vintage addition to their denim collection. They have a serious soft spot for 90’s grunge, funky socks, and that tie-dye jumpsuit they wear literally every day in the summertime.
Sam Burris (she/her)
Sam fell out of her Mom in Oklahoma, clowned around Seattle for 10 years and is now pretending to hike in Missoula, Montana. She’s got her pard’ner, Joe, at home to help tame their beasts, Ollie and Milosch. You don’t need to know much, but the highlights are: She hates chocolate, is allergic to grass, can’t drink champagne, and only likes roses when they’re made of Shakespearean sonnets. Sam’s personal style is rarely trendy (tried and failed one too many times) and can be best described as that of a bag. More than anything, she believes in the power of personal style! She’ll never push you tooooo far, but maybe just far enough to talk you into those janitor pants…you know you want them anyways!
Quinn McQuilkin (she/her)
Quinn is a born and raised Missouligan (she is also unsure if that's a word) She has considered herself a fashionista since the 5th grade when she pulled off a combination of florals and suspenders. She enjoys weirdly flavored kombucha, funky jewelry, and long drives in her mini mini van Jeff. Quinn also has a odd habit of looking up photos of scary sharks when she can't sleep. You can find her reading a book, at your local goodwill, or rewatching Harold and Maude. Her fashion inspiration can range anywhere from 'hot kindergarten teacher' to a 2019 rendition of Claire Danes (Romeo + Juliet)
Macy McQuilkin (she/her)
Macy has been living in Missoula Montana for her whole life and is now working her way through high school. Macy enjoys snowboarding at Snowbowl and is now learning to skateboard. She has a bit of an obsession with shopping (mostly thrifting) and finding fun, small pieces of jewelry. She also weirdly likes to pierce her own ears over going and getting it professionally done. Macy has no clue what to call her fashion sense but is constantly wearing fun pants paired with either a small top or a giant grandpa shirt. She also once wore the same pants as her high school janitor...Macy is a basement troll at Betty's Divine and Divine Trash Vintage. She is a vintage buyer/helper and will always go to the men's pant section in a thrift store first and will be occasionally seen at the store bringing up the trash club packages or stocking the vintage section with the newest treasures.
Annie Sweatland (she/her)
Annie Sweatland has bounced around the country. She was born in DC, crawled around there for a few months, then moved to Denver. After staying there for a few years, her family packed up and moved to the tiny town of Page, Arizona, where she quickly learned that stapling your own finger hurts. At the ripe age of 6, Annie then moved to her new home in Missoula. Years later, Annie became a basement troll at Bettys Divine. While she doesn’t know how to describe her style, her outfit inspiration comes from the men’s section of goodwill and the cool people she sees walking the streets. Annie likes to ski, draw, attempt to skateboard, and play her beloved viola for her even more beloved cat. She assists as a vintage buyer, and is rarely seen at the store, unless she is struggling to get up the stairs with 10 too many clothing items in her hand, or has a box full of deliveries for our trash clubbers.
Beth Rademan (she/her)
Beth Rademan is the oh-so-talented seamstress for Betty’s! In addition to being a master of the sewing machine, she has also been a dental assistant for past 38 years. Beth learned to sew from her mom and in home ec classes (looks like someone was paying attention in school!). In 2008, Beth started her own mending business, “Mending Done Right.” In her spare time, she likes to make tee shirt quilts and donate them to International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, who her SO is a member of. And when she’s not mendin’ or cleanin’ teeth, you can find her visiting her lovely daughter in Spokane, or shopping at thrift stores.
