Thrifting as a lifestyle movement goes beyond mere consumption; thrifting (scouring the planet for secondhand goods) is used as a way to recycle, repurpose, create, collect, diversify, live sustainably, make meaning, and make/save money.
I have been part of this movement for over 30 years and use my thrifting skills to meet almost all of my family's consumer needs, from home goods and fashion, to making art and having fun. Plus, it is my favorite and most sustained way to do self care and affirm my values.
The podcast began as a way to share and discuss thrift lifestyle ideas and issues, such as do-it-yourself projects, collecting obsessions, vintage restoration, parsing goods, and reselling adventures. Join the community today!
