About READY TRADING

READY TRADING specializes in naturally beautiful clothing designed and produced locally in Atlanta and the USA. We focus on natural fabrics, rich color, rustic neutrals and versatile looks for women of all ages.  

We look for pieces that pack and travel, move seamlessly from work to dinner, and look great at home or around the world. We select styles that can be layered, worn year after year, and pieces that can showcase treasured accessories and adornments.  

Owner and designer, Lee Read Pilgrim is an Atlanta native and has developed her mission and aesthetic over many years. Lee opened her first clothing store, Almanac, in 1978 in Athens, Georgia. Almanac was a gathering place for women of many ages and interests. In that same small town tradition, READY TRADING continues to focus on providing a personal shopping experience.  

Our TAOS label is designed, cut and sewn in the USA. TAOS offers flattering basics in seasonal fabrics and colors.  Our READY COLLECTION includes signature pieces designed locally by Lee Read Pilgrim in addition to tried and true TAOS silhouettes, recreated in limited, seasonal fabrics and colors. All styles are designed, cut and sewn in the USA and created with you, our customers in mind.

In addition to our own lines, expect to find favorite American brands such as CP Shades, Bryn Walker, Johnny Was, Zuri, and Comfy USA. 

We believe that supporting American designers and artisan communities around the world through their products helps to sustain and preserve important techniques and traditions. Our Heritage Collection incorporates Fair Trade accessories from cultures around the world. Many of our artisan lines are created by American designers who have embraced their heritage and returned to ancestral communities to produce their designs using traditional techniques, materials and craftsmanship.
