Fast fashion impact on the environment is serious, we know too well. Let's share something positive about the joys of thrifting and circular economy. I've always enjoyed a Sunday stroll at a flea market back in France and when I travel I can't resist visiting vintage fairs. Special mention for the sellers with a vast knowledge of manufacturing process and history, I always learn something from them.
Even my kids seem to have developed a good eye for vintage bargains. Little G spotted a Hess fire truck toy at a fair for $1, later we found out it was a collectible selling on eBay for $40!
Well-made and guaranteed items have a longer life cycle.
My finds of this month: A wool blanket from to watch Netflix, an Alpine Lowe backpack spotted on Kijiji for my upcoming hiking expedition, a pair of Northface waterproof pants for all-weather bike commute from FB Marketplace, a crepe skirt from the Realreal because... this is Prada for the price of Zara!
