Trends come and go almost cyclically but some things remain evergreen. Thrifting or thrift shopping is the act of buying pre-loved items at a discounted price. These items that have lost their value to another might still prove to be invaluable for you. Respecting the things we own is important as opposed to treating them as merely replaceable. The capitalist culture would lead you to believe that buying pre-owned things is a waste of your resources but oftentimes you can hunt for real treasures in thrift stores that far surpass their retail value. Thrifting is not only beneficial for you and your wallet but also for the planet.
