You already know that I love thrift stores and flea markets! Last year I made myself a promise not to buy new clothes for myself or the kids. Apart from 3 coats (one raincoat and two wintercoats) I succeeded. I think this is not only good news for my budget but also for the environment. I didn’t even buy one new piece for myself. Can you imagine? And no, I don’t look like a vagabond. :)
I think it’s really easy to buy only 2nd hand in Belgium. We have so many great thrift stores and flea markets! Last Sunday I bought a t-shirt for LIsa. But actually it was a bit too short… I loved it so much that I quickly refashioned it. I added a thrifted piece of fabric. Total cost of this ‘new’ dress: 1,10 euro!
Lisa is so proud of her new dress. I had to take pictures of her even thought the light was not perfect. So some of the pictures are blurry but perfect to me.
How about you? Do you buy 2nd hand? What’s your best deal so far? Do you refashion clothes from time to time? I’d be happy to read your stories!
