greenVALENTINE {SECOND-HAND SHOPPING}

Have you ever considered second-hand shopping? It really is so fun. You get to become a modern-day treasure hunter & let your creativity run wild…there are a ton of second-hand items out there to find! In the picture above we found Lightning McQueen for $10 and the scooter for just $3 at a yard sale! So consider checking out these options before you buy something new:Garage Sales
Thrift/Second Hand Stores
Consignment Stores
(Plato’s Closet has great clothes)

freeCycle
Swap Websites (like Swap.com)
Even Etsy.com

Up-Cycled Items
Antique Stores
Junk Yards
ReStore Outlets (Habitat for Humanity)
Swap Parties (more on this another time)
Your Friend’s Closets
The list goes on & on but you get the idea! There are so many gently used items out there that can find a place in your life and not in a land fill!  I have to stretch myself to think this way sometimes…but we don’t always have to get something brand new to love it!  I even try to think about borrowing items (like fancy dresses or shoes for a nice occasion if I’m only going to wear it once or kitchen items for a party that I am only going to use once)! it just makes my little GREEN heart so happy!

There are several things in these pictures that I got from friends who were getting rid of them, garage sales, thrift shops or antique stores…can you even guess which items are used?
