Good tips! I like vintage, classic stuff. For sure you don't find many new things with those characteristics!

Important to divert stuff from the waste stream. My grandkids’ friends (and their parents) do clothing swaps - lots of “new” hand me downs they like because they chose them. I don’t think they’ve had to buy new clothes in the last 3 years.
