From time to time I plan on hosting consignment sales for local women to put their gently used items back into circulation where someone else can acquire and love them!
In the meantime, I encourage everyone to think of "Second hand first!" When you have the desire to go shopping, or to consume, please do so mindfully. I always resort to trying to find what I'm after at a secondhand outlet. Barring that, I turn to local businesses and see if they have what I need and if I still come up short then I do my best to shop from a source that has as much transparency and good practices as possible.
I know the Amazon is easy and efficient. But it's like in Peter Pan where each time a child says they don't believe in fairies, a fairy dies. Every purchase though Amazon or a big box store hurts our local businesses and I want to stem that tide as much as I can.
