Many of us have a passion for shopping and staying updated on the latest fashion and lifestyle trends through online vloggers, videos and platforms like Pinterest. While some of us go to luxury brands to quench our retail cravings, the rest of us go shopping at a variety of places. One of the favorites is thrift stores. These stores sell items that have been gently used and sent to these stores to be reused and sold. These items are cheaper and better for the environment as these products are being recycled. In the age of fast fashion and high consumption, where much is created and discarded with changing trends, thrift stores are an important intervention to reuse and even re-love all things that carry a story and a history.
