Local vintage seller Everyday Ejiji is back with its biggest move since Vintage Village!
Owner and founder Ashley Becerra is no stranger to hard work. After clocking countless hours sourcing around the country, burning the midnight oil cleaning and tagging items, and appearing at a multitude of markets and popups over the past two years—all while holding down a day job or three—she’s ready to turn the page and write a new chapter for her business.
That’s right, Everyday Ejiji officially opened its South Minneapolis brick-and-mortar shop on May 13, 2023, and it will be open nearly every weekend. (Don’t fret—if the shop is closed for the weekend you’ll be able to catch Ashley at a local market instead.)
Here is the rundown on the new shop.
When will you be open?
You can find Everyday Ejiji in their storefront from 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM most weekends. The best way to know when to shop is to check her website. You can also get the upcoming month’s hours on Instagram, and the schedule will always be posted next to the shop’s front door.
Where is the shop located?
You can find Everyday Ejiji in South Minneapolis right off Hiawatha Ave S. Directions.

Say “Hey” 👋 to Ashley Becerra
Ashley Becerra is the owner of Everyday Ejiji, a business she would describe as her little pocket of vintage bliss. Originally from the event planning world, she made a switch to vintage after stumbling upon a hidden gem. Scores of people faced with newfound free time and freedom were leaning into creativity, switching fields, and wholeheartedly following their passions.
With some encouragement from friends within the vintage community and the universe giving her every sign, she took a leap of faith and created Everyday Ejiji, which she likes to think of as a rescue service for garments. Becerra lives for the thrill of the hunt and she gets great joy from pairing one-of-a-kind and staple pieces alike with their forever homes. When she’s not elbow-deep in vintage, you can find her trying out new recipes, planning her next trip, attempting to learn how to sew, or enjoying free time with her husband and two rescue pitties.
