Not so long ago, resale meant thrift and thrift shops were dingy little stores hidden behind dated storefronts. There was a fair amount of shame involved with shopping in them, it indicated something unpleasant about who you were. Pleasant people shopped at Nordstrom and might make a yearly pilgrimage to Macy’s in California or Saks in New York.
Fortunately, our collective social conscience has begun to shift, and our awareness awakened. We’ve started to think about social responsibility, respecting the environment, minimizing our carbon footprint, the indecent level of consumerism and consumption present in our culture, the struggle of the locally-owned company, trade deficits…
Can we live more simply? Can we consume less, recycle more, support each other in better, more mutually beneficial ways; can we live our lives with a global mindset – remembering that every decision we make contributes to a wave of impact?
How can we live conscientiously while honoring our inner fashionista? Must we give her up?
We don’t think so.
We believe that resale shops like Second Glance are a wonderful way to experience the thrill of fashion while remaining socially responsible.
