As the owner of Abelina Shop I have always had a passion for shopping secondhand and wanting to share my unique finds. This hobby and passion for thrifting turned into an Instagram shop, which has now evolved into the official Abelina Shop site where I share my own sustainable designs and products. But why do I love thrifitng so much? What are the benefits of thrifting?
BENEFITS OF SHOPPING SECONDHAND
I've been thrifting ever since high school out of necessity for affordable clothes and now continue to shop secondhand, not out of necessity (although saving hundreds of dollars is still a huge benefit!) but because I love supporting my local communities by supporting its secondhand stores and antique shops and helping the Earth and my environment by reducing my carbon footprint by reusing/recycling and preventing items from ending up in landfills.
I also love the thrill and adventure of thrifting, finding things you've never seen before, that has a history and that no one else has! Every time you shop secondhand there's a surprise waiting for you instead of the cookie cutter products at malls. And when you purchase with Abelina Shop, you can know that you too are helping the environment.
