For us, it is important for people to be conscious of how they spend their money and the knock on effect it has. By changing our consumer behaviour and taking time and consideration over the items we purchase, buying for quality and longevity, we can cut down on mass-produced manufacturing demands as well as the amount of household waste we create. All whilst filling your home with beautiful and truly unique items in the process.
Shopping second-hand is actively choosing to support a small, independent supply chain. Most of our items are bought through charities or individual market sellers who make a living from these purchases. The money you spend feeds back into small communities, rather than getting lost in large corporations.
Vintage homewares, especially ceramics, tend to be of a much higher quality than modern, mass-produced, mass-replicated items. Before the demand for cheaper and cheaper homewares, the materials and making processes were of a much higher standard. Proof of this can be seen in the flawless condition of the items found on the website, decades after they were first made.
When you buy second-hand, you are re-investing in materials and resources that have already been used. No matter how ethically or sustainably made a new item is, buying second-hand will always be the best option in terms of the environment, creating very little demand on the worlds resources.
