Meet the Maker

Andrea Byrne

Just call me Dre!

2020 presented an opportunity to try something new, and here it is. When the pandemic hit, I wanted to help in any way that I could. As a student currently studying Hospitality and Tourism Management, an industry that has more or less collapsed, I was lost for work and uncertain, like so many of you.

I started All and Extra primarily as a side hustle a few years ago, but it has developed into much more. I live a very seasonal life and tend to be on the move. A lot. Having the ability and freedom to work anywhere has always been important to me and crucial in aspects of my life that don't allow time for a regular job. In the winter months I ski. In the fall I go to school. In the summer months I traditionally work a seasonal job to support myself.

But now I have this blooming love child, All and Extra. I called my brand All and Extra because I make things out of the surplus and partially because I have crafting ADD. My goal with AE is to reduce textile waste and revolutionize the accessory market with my own two hands!

If you've made it this far, thank you for reading and for your support!
