4 Common Questions About Thrifting

Surprisingly, some people still don’t appreciate the importance of reuse or love hunting through the racks at their local thrift shop!

You can easily score unique types of clothing that will revamp your closet but it all depends on how you approach your trips to the thrift shop.

Katie’s thoughts on #Secondhand

Katie from Sustainability in Style shares her thoughts on thrifting, shopping secondhand and supporting sustainable brands:

 “It can be difficult to get your head around the fact that once upon a time the item you owned was owned by someones else used for something else entirely but this model of purchasing often gives the best of both worlds.  Thrifted but not. New but old. Secondhand but firsthand. All very head-scratchinlgy-good!”
