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.
