Once upon a time second hand meant second best. But as we increasingly become more conscious about the size of our carbon footprint, many of us are finding new old ways to decorate our wee ones' corners. Scouring second hand stores like Salvos and Vinnies (if you're in Oz land) can even be like going on a mini treasure hunt. (I know, spoken like a true thrifter!) And often mixing up some preloved with high end wares is the ticket to a unique space that's also affordable. So, do you feel the prelove too? Any favourite haunts for goodies? Do tell!

Thanks to Pepper Stitches for the heads up on Nothing New Month.

  3. I sincerely hope someone comments about a great source for vintage/pre-loved/second hand in Sydney, because I am yet to find one myself. We semi-frequently attend markets in Toukley where a few gems shine among the junk.
