In years past, I’ve avoided Black Friday like the plague that shares its modifier. And believe me, I’m not about to brave even the relativity tame Canadian sale day IRL anytime soon. But with more and more sales heading online and small businesses taking part, I’m not as opposed to shopping this time of year as I was before.
I adore resale fashion. Whether it’s consignment, vintage or a thrift shop find, I love that resale fashion helps me determine my own distinct personal style with pieces that I truly love and treasure. I also love that shopping fashion resale means that there’s just that much less pressure on the fashion industry to produce more collections faster.
I’ve heard about the online shop Dolls Kill for months now as a purveyor of all that is off-beat and quirky. But I found Helpsy, its ethical fashion twin, instead!
