Madyson Willoughby ’19 used her business degree to start a vintage clothing shop in Tacoma.

Madyson Willoughby ’19 hadn’t planned to become an entrepreneur right out of college, but she was perfectly positioned for it to happen.

The Tacoma native majored in business at Puget Sound, and after graduation was waiting tables and selling her vintage clothing collection on the app Depop when she stumbled across an opportunity to lease a pint-sized storefront on 6th Avenue. Several months later, Willoughby opened Good Vibes Vintage & Resale, a pastel-pink treasure trove of pre-loved clothing.
