Why Buy Vintage

According to an article in Readers Digest "Consignment shopping is probably the only consumption that's environmentally friendly: When you buy an item you're keeping it out of the landfills, where an estimated 85 percent of used clothing winds up every year."

As someone with a very sensitive nose, I have often avoided buying used or vintage clothing in the past. Surprisingly, most designer pieces - even used, are actually quite expensive and usually quite tattered. One consignment boutique that alway impresses is "Our Little Secret" in Port Credit. Not only is the scent inviting but the selection is extensive. I was not blessed with patience and have never found digging through racks of putrid smelling clothing in hopes of finding some treasure appealing. This consignment boutique only carries clean, well thought out pieces, creating an oasis of unique vintage treasures. You are guaranteed to find many pieces you love! Recently I traded a small purse for the sandals above (Burberry $99) by far the best find ever.

There are many ways to recycle your old wardrobe or eliminate the need for constant replacement. A "clothing exchange party" is always a fun way to recycle your wardrobe amongst friends. The primary focus should be on reducing and reusing our consumption. The key to this is creating a versatile wardrobe made of sustainable yet durable fabrics and similar colour palettes. This allows you to mix and match your entire wardrobe easier, and when you add a unique piece it will fit right in. Buying vintage is a great way to recycle and a perfect way to find that unique piece you may otherwise not be able to afford.
