I think it is exciting that an object has a history that it has been lovingly taken care of and may have a story to tell. If you find this difficult think about this instead, if the object had belonged to a friend you would probably not think twice about giving it a good wash and happily using would you?
Well it’s just the same.
We live in a throwaway society yet our Earth needs us to be keepers now, to take care of her and of our possessions so we don’t keep draining her resources.
Buying pre loved (or second hand/vintage/retro is a great start and a fabulous way to thrift. Keep an open mind and try something new.
