Attention all my fellow Thrifters!
If your like me and you can’t resist a sale brace yourself.
I had the opportunity to interview (more importantly shop) with fabulous store owner Jeff Wexler of a phenomenal second hand and consignment store on queen called Kind Exchange.
Kind Exchange is not only a consignment store, it is also triples as a place that you can donate or trade in clothing and accessories.
The store is FILLED with unique finds such as these great mustard yellow jeans and nude pumps from ALDO.
Here are some more shots taken at Kind Exchange and let me tell you, these pieces were tough to walk away from.
Especially the 90′s wind breaker. Something about it’s Fresh Prince of Bell-esqueness makes me adore the whole look.
Like all the items at Kind Exchange, these items were gently used.
I know I’m not alone when I say the thrifting adventure can be frustrating at times.
There you are… standing at the accessories rack.
Your eyes lock to a beautiful statement piece at a steal.
You take it off of the rack and raise it high above your head like the baboon in Lion King did to Simba.
You look a bit closer …the clasp is broken or there’s discolouration of the metal 🙁 . Alright I’m being a little dramatic but when dents or stains are sported as patterns on goods, a fab find quickly turns into an undesirable piece.
That problem is totally averted at Kind Exchange!
Aside from a thoroughly checked inventory, whats so special about this second store is the contribution made back to the community. The beauty and one of my favourite things about Kind Exchange is that it donates proceeds of
items customers donate directly to local charities or causes such as Multiple Sclerosis-The Partners MS Center at Brigham & Women’s Hospital. An example of a store who’s doing their part to make the world a more beautiful
place in their way. Keep it up Kind Exchange! This store is definitely worth checking out. For more info check out kindexchange.ca
A big thanks goes to Jeff Wexler and his beautiful partner in crime Courtney for giving the DO YOU team and myself a fabulous Kind Exchange experience!
Until next time lovelies,
Express and dress yourself in whatever way you choose.
The world is your runway.
