just as a sneak peak:1. Less energy, fewer chemicals.
2. Reduce your water footprint.
3. More thoughtful consumption.
4. Save money.
5. Donating your gently used clothing to thrift stores gives back to the community.
I seriously had never thought about clothing with regard to #1 and #2. read!
also, grist! (is amazing)
just because you buy things from goodwill doesn’t mean you’re into “vintage”. christ.
agreed. just because it’s from a thrift store doesn’t make it ~*~vintage~*~.
Is it just me or do people give you weird looks when you say you shop at a thrift store?
sometimes, most of my friends are just as cheap as I am or they cosplay a lot so we all thrift together.
I do remember one time a girl asked me where I got something I was wearing. I usually avoid telling people just because there are a lot of harbored misconceptions about thrift stores and people who shop there. She kept nagging me until I eventually told her, and she sort of made a weird face and walked away.
I wish more people were open to the idea of it, I hate how a lot of people assume they are dirty places that mostly poor/homeless people occupy. I know for a fact I could afford brand new clothes from the mall, but I’d rather have more unique pieces and a bigger wardrobe for 80% less than mall prices. And besides, there’s no guilt of you spending $30 on a pair of jeans and not wearing them.
