My mom was repurposing, reusing and upcycling long before concern for the environment was fashionable. She knew what she'd stashed away would come in handy for something, someday. She was also thrifty and would drag us kids to---ewww---a dirty, smelly, icky resale store to buy clothes, books and whatever. It's not like we HAD to shop there, so why did we?
I got over the "dirty, smelly, icky" a long time ago. I love scavenging through resale shops, flea markets, antique shops and estate sales---and then repurposing, reusing and upcycling, just like mom!
