So by now everyone knows there’s a crisis, so let’s not talk about that and let’s try to think of good things evolving out of this.
Before everything happened, I’ve planned to open up my own section of second hand fashion in already the second store here in Groningen.
In case you missed it: I have a little rack of vintage and second hand gems in fashion stores in Groningen. Everything is hand-picked by me and is selected on fit and fabric. Everything I buy, even second hand, needs to be from a natural material. I hate wearing polyester, so when I thrift, even for others, I only buy materials such as linen, wool, cotton and silk. All these items I then resell in fair fashion stores, to show that second hand is for everyone. It’s natural, its luxurious, it’s cheap and it’s clean.
Because of corona, the stores that I was selling my items in, had to close. However, one of the stores managed to open their own online shop.
Buying second hand is so much better for the planet. Will you save the earth with us?
