Pixie Geldof explains how she brings joy to the world of second-hand shopping https://mijasguide.com/pixie-geldof-explains-how-she-brings-joy-to-the-world-of-second-hand-shopping/ Sun, 08 May 2022 06:05:11 +0000 https://mijasguide.com/pixie-geldof-explains-how-she-brings-joy-to-the-world-of-second-hand-shopping/

In fact, the best fashion purchase Geldof — who now buys the majority of her wardrobe second-hand — has made to date was at a vintage boutique in Paris. “It’s a denim jacket with a scene from Rodeo Drive on the back, with rhinestones on it. It’s very Dolly Parton, super 80s and I’m obsessed with it,” she says.

That’s not to say she doesn’t like the world of online resale either, especially when it comes to pieces she’s been watching for a long time. Currently at the top of her wish list? A pair of Miu Miu floral cowboy boots from Spring/Summer 2012. “I do alerts on all the sites for different things I’m looking for,” says Geldof. “I’m still waiting [the Miu Miu boots] at the ping – it happened once and I missed them.

For Geldof, it is crucial that second-hand shopping is normalized, given the enormous environmental impact of the fashion industry. “When I was growing up, there was a [stigma] on buying second-hand clothes. Vintage was cool, but second-hand was something else,” she recalls. “I think that’s changing, thank God I’ll never understand why we need all these new clothes.”

Going forward, Geldof hopes Resale Therapy will continue to grow, allowing people to donate and repair their clothes, as well as buy used. “We want it to become a place where people can really get involved in making their clothes last,” she says.

In the meantime, however, it’s all about enjoying the process of buying and selling pre-loved pieces. “Really, it’s friends hanging out and doing something together – it’s super fun,” Geldof concludes. “But if we can engage people with this idea that the occasion is actually super cool, then that’s great.”

Resale Therapy is hosting a sale at The London Edition on May 8 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Admission is £3.

Student groups and local thrift stores unite to drive change in fast fashion – The Cavalier Daily https://mijasguide.com/student-groups-and-local-thrift-stores-unite-to-drive-change-in-fast-fashion-the-cavalier-daily/ Sun, 01 May 2022 20:09:21 +0000 https://mijasguide.com/student-groups-and-local-thrift-stores-unite-to-drive-change-in-fast-fashion-the-cavalier-daily/

In the face of the ever-escalating climate crisis, local Charlottesville thrift stores are fighting to continue making an impact while facing the threat from large online retailers that thrived at the start of the pandemic, while college students University act through various clothing drives and build awareness

Although shopping online from the comfort and safety of one’s home tends to be more accessible and less expensive, local thrift stores and community options have a lower environmental impact that can outweigh the immediate outlay. As the second largest producer of pollution and 10% of total annual carbon emissions, the apparel industry as a whole has an important role to play in the impending climate crisis.

In particular, fast fashion – the rapid production of trendy clothing – is a major contributor to the amount of clothing produced and then discarded each year, exacerbating climate change.

Megan Young, a third-year College student and member of the University’s sustainability outreach team, said fast fashion lends itself to micro-trends and themed clothing, which can be harmful to the environment. environment.

“As fashion brands, their only goal is to make a profit, which means they’re not really interested in the quality of their clothes, but more in the quantity,” Young said. “It produces huge amounts of styles without thinking about the long-term impacts.”

Nina Burke was the manager of Uplift Thrift, a Charlottesville thrift store that closed in March. She believes shopping at second-hand clothing stores like hers is an important way to reduce individual environmental impact.

“We kind of operate in the model of a circular economy where people who have too much stuff donate it to us and then we sell it to people who need it,” Burke said. “We keep it out of the landfill, because we hardly throw anything away. Honestly, the waste generated by fast fashion and retail is staggering. »

A circular economy is one in which clothes are recycled and kept in circulation indefinitely in order to minimize clothing waste and maximize their use.

However, Uplift Thrift encountered many difficulties and struggled to stay afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic. The store closed for four months at the start of the pandemic while paying rent.

“It was really difficult, but we held on.” said Burke. “It’s only because our community is super supportive.”

The community aspect is essential to Burke’s business, and it is one of the main reasons for the warm and supportive environment that emanates from Uplift Thrift. One of the major themes of Uplift Thrift is the importance of having a safe space for everyone, especially the LGBTQ+ community. Uplift Thrift creates this safe space by providing clothing for everyone and all genders.

Since reopening, another primary focus for Uplift Thrift has been to keep procedures in place to mitigate the effects of the pandemic. This has been done by ensuring that all customers use masks, although this can sometimes be difficult to enforce.

“It’s really important to us to protect the most vulnerable people in our community,” Burke said. “Everyone who enters here is just as important as the others.”

However, as online shopping and fast fashion trends flourished during the pandemic, Uplift Thrift struggled to stay afloat despite its best efforts. Although the doors to Uplift Thrift last closed on March 25, Burke intends to continue making a difference in the community through pop-ups and community events.

Burke said University students should continue to shop secondhand at the variety of local thrift stores in the Charlottesville community.

“One of the things I loved about our resale community in Charlottesville is that we all work together rather than compete with each other,” Burke said. “We work together to attract customers and support each other.”

Another way students have reduced their carbon footprint through sustainable clothing purchases and use is through clothing swapping and driving, as well as targeted shopping.

Global Problems, Local Solutions seeks to bring about meaningful change at the local level by hosting a University-wide clothing drive in April. Third-year college student Allison McCue, co-chair of the club, is one of the leaders of the upcoming clothing drive, which she says will greatly benefit the sustainability efforts of the college community.

“We’re going to do a pop off — basically like a thrift store, but with the donations we got for people here at U.Va. might try like swapping their old clothes with new clothes their peers swapped,” McCue said. “It at least reduces purchases by a few parts, and then it also connects students within the community.”

In light of the climate crisis, Young emphasized the importance of conscious consumption to reduce one’s environmental impact.

“I think progress from perfection is my biggest thing,” Young said. “Just having an impact and making positive choices in the areas that are achievable for your lifestyle and for your life stage right now is what’s really important.”

$50,000 worth of clothes stolen in ram raid near Auckland airport https://mijasguide.com/50000-worth-of-clothes-stolen-in-ram-raid-near-auckland-airport/ Sat, 30 Apr 2022 04:52:56 +0000 https://mijasguide.com/50000-worth-of-clothes-stolen-in-ram-raid-near-auckland-airport/

Around $50,000 worth of clothing stolen from a shop raided by youths near Auckland Airport early Saturday morning was recovered by police.

A group of youths drove a car through the store’s front doors around 3.20am on Saturday.

1News understands that the store is the Icebreaker outlet and that bollards were installed a few years ago, but the car managed to bypass them and enter the store.

The store manager says CCTV shows the alleged violators rammed the entrance four to five times before it gave way.

The young people took clothes before fleeing in a second car.

This car was later spotted speeding down the Southwest Freeway by a police officer. The car received the signal to stop but did not. He was not prosecuted.

The car was later found crushed through a school fence on Bader Drive, Māngere. One of the alleged perpetrators was located a short distance away with a broken leg. He was taken to hospital for treatment.

The other occupants of the car managed to escape.

Clothes stolen from the store were found in the wrecked car, police said.

“Investigations are underway to locate four other youths involved in the burglary,” a police spokesman said.

The early morning ram raid comes after a series of similar incidents in Auckland and across the North Island involving several teenagers.

Police said social media is a key driver behind the spike in ram raids across the country.

Detective Inspector Karen Bright told reporters on Wednesday that offenders as young as 11 were posting their exploits online.

For Sale: Other People’s Clothes, A Little Worn: Bushwick Daily https://mijasguide.com/for-sale-other-peoples-clothes-a-little-worn-bushwick-daily/ Mon, 25 Apr 2022 05:46:55 +0000 https://mijasguide.com/for-sale-other-peoples-clothes-a-little-worn-bushwick-daily/

If you’ve been browsing Troutman Street lately, you’ve probably seen a new store door open: Other people’s clothes – OPC for short. It opened earlier this month and it’s the second location within walking distance with the name – there’s one in Ridgewood that’s been in operation since 2020. Both stores look like nice open spaces; full of good vibes, and, well, other people’s clothes.

Owners Christine Costello, Pat Noecker and Jane Herships are no strangers to the buy, sell and trade game. Their journey to OPC began with a boutique Costello and Noecker owned in Ridgewood called Feels, which opened in 2018 and closed a few years later. It was a small shop filled with vintage clothing, artwork, and other accessories. It was “really exciting,” Costello says now. “We met a lot of people in the neighborhood, [but] there is one thing that kept happening… Everyone was asking if they could sell. And I was like, ‘Ah, okay.’ And it was a year of that.

Costello and Noecker tried to do it a bit at Feels – “I come from a background of buying, selling and trading, I worked for Beacon’s Closet for 13 years,” says Costello. The space at Feels was small, however. The operation of a purchase, sale, trade requires “space and personnel”. This brought Costello into contact with Herships, which ran a booth in Brooklyn Flea under the name “Other People’s Clothes”. Now they are here.

Owners Christine Costello, Pat Noecker and Jane Herships are no strangers to the buy, sell and trade game. Their first brick and mortar store opened in Ridgewood in 2020 (below)

“We’d like you to help us…but we’re going to have to take your name.” It’s a little too good. said Costello. Now she says her business in Ridgewood rivals more established vintage names like Beacon’s Closet or L Train Vintage. “It’s cool to be part of this group,” she says.

Moving to Bushwick was also a big deal.

“Bushwick was really that next frontier,” she says. “You see all the trends in full force…Bushwick is his own destination, and as a business owner, that’s exciting.”

Unlike many other “buy, sell, trade” stores, Costello says OPC has a mission.

“When you ask [someone] what their sell-to-buy, sell, trade experience is like in New York, it’s usually pretty intimidating, or it’s like a cool kids’ club,” she says. Per Costello, this is not the case in the two stores she runs.

On a regular day, a vegan leather bag — from Canadian brand Matt and Nat — can be found for around $20. Prada wedges are $50. Both stores regularly post new items for sale on their stories feature. instagram accounts. Costello says, “If you’re from this neighborhood, regardless of your income level, you can walk in here and buy something for $7.98.

“We aim to be a truly inclusive store,” she adds. “There’s no brand we absolutely say no to and no size we say no to.”

OPC Bushwick is located at 333 Troutman Street and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Their Ridgewood location is at 885 Woodward Avenue and it’s open daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Both also sell things directly on Instagram.

Proctor students launch free thrift store – Duluth News Tribune https://mijasguide.com/proctor-students-launch-free-thrift-store-duluth-news-tribune/ Sat, 23 Apr 2022 13:30:00 +0000 https://mijasguide.com/proctor-students-launch-free-thrift-store-duluth-news-tribune/

PROCTOR — High school students now have more access to new and gently used clothing thanks to a new free thrift store on campus.

The store is a collaboration between Proctor High School’s Business Leadership Class and several business and community partners. It has grown from a stash of clothes stocked in the school laundry room to a chic and welcoming well-stocked store suitable for all students.

“We’ve had a few students come forward and say the school needs clothes for students who need them,” said Sarah Klyve, dean of students and coordinator of Proctor Pathways. “We had about 30 kids coming in every month, so we saw the need and the value of having that space. But we also realized that a lot of kids wouldn’t necessarily want to go to a laundry room to do their shopping. We So we started dreaming a little bigger.”

The idea was to build a space where students could grab clothes when they wanted or needed them and make it more accessible and not a needs-based space. Students in Proctor’s Business Leadership Course were tasked with creating a business plan, building awareness among community members and businesses, and using their prior knowledge of advertising and marketing to build the business.

“And the community response has been amazing,” Klyve said. “So many companies have helped us get here.”

The Boxcar Thrift Store at Proctor High School was designed to be a welcoming environment where all students can visit and find the clothes they might need.

Teri Gift / Duluth News Tribune

The original closet began with a $1,000 grant from REA3D, the Proctor Area Educational Foundation and with 25 boxes of clothes donated by Maurices. When it came time to build the thrift store, Maurices once again donated large contributions of clothing. Frandsen Bank provided a $5,000 grant for the redesign; an architect from Architectural Advantage helped design the space with the students; and members of the local painters union came to donate and install wallpaper.

Other students from the school also participated in the project. The students of the school construction project have drawn up offers for the various construction projects, such as shelves, tables and counters. Construction students bought materials and also built the various clothes racks. The students also took it upon themselves to create a corner of basic hygiene products so that the students could access supplies such as tampons, soap and toothpaste.

“It was pretty amazing to see these students take the lead on this project,” Klyve said. “They took ownership of this space and did a lot to make it what it is now.”

For junior Laiken Ettestad, designing space is what makes her proud.

“I really like the way we designed it and how we did things like add plants, lighting and a rug,” Ettestad said. “It’s the little touches that make it a really cool and friendly atmosphere.”

Bryce Twaddle, another Proctor student, said he liked the variety of clothes.

“There’s a lot to choose from,” Twaddle said as he picked up a Minnesota Timberwolves t-shirt.

The store is open several days a week until lunchtime and several times throughout the school day to allow students to shop. Donations of gently used and new clothing are always accepted. Anyone with donations can drop them off from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the school’s main office.
