In praise of the Goodwill
Goodwill has come into the 21st century with a whole new perspective. Check out their site at Goodwill: http://www.goodwill.org/blog/shop/five-back-to-school-fashion-trends-you-can-find-at-thrift-stores/.
They remind us, “So the next time you are out thrifting, make sure you keep an open mind. If you like the pattern on a shirt but don’t love the style, consider how a few snips and stitches might improve it. (And save it from the landfills!) Look for furniture that could be repurposed to better suit your needs or for paintings that you could remake according to your own theme.”
From designer to shanty chic, this little cabin on the Klamath River was 100% furnished from secondhand giveaways, throwaways, thrift shops, salvage.
You can have an extensive wardrobe without breaking the bank and at the same time, remain confident that you did not break your moral code in fashion.
Thrifting offers zero guilt for your zero carbon footprint clothing.Also, your secondhand purchase has already bypassed
- Slave labor,
- Child labor,
- Harsh chemicals,
- Scarce resources, and
- International shipping.
Don’t forget shoes, accessories, jewelry, lingerie, and gifts galore!
