The Beginning

I've made a commitment.

I live in a country of extreme materialsm. I can have anything I want for a price. It's shiny, its new, its made in bulk.
 To defy the odds, I've decided to buy used.

Used tells a story. Pre-owned means someone else loved it first. Thrifting means saving money for more important things. Putting love into improving an otherwise unloved item gives a sense of pride and success that will never be experienced from swiping a plastic card. Ugly can be beautiful, a throwaway can be a gem, it just takes time and energy, like most good things in the world.

I extend my hand to you to join me on my journey to living a secondhand life.
Find joy as I share my love for making things beautiful.


  1. Ok. What blog number is this? Like 10? We'll see how long this lasts you...ha.

  2. Thanks for the vote of confidence Jenni! I'll have you know this is only blog number 2 and I actually have something to say this time instead of just rambling about my life. Ha.
