In the last couple of years, I've joined a few Buy-and-Sell groups on facebook.
A couple are specific to Moms. One is specific to the City of Hamilton.
Lately I have been finding total SCORES on these groups!
A couple of months ago, I was able to snap up this super-duper cutesy dress. The tags were still on, and it was obviously bought from an independent shop (which I OBVIOUSLY love!).
This dress, bought on a Mom's Buy-and-Sell Group, was only $15!
Belt- thrifted ions ago.
Shoes- Talize- $7.99
I love these boots.
I grabbed them off of a fellow Mom this past week. They are (perhaps faux?) wool on the outside and fleece lined. They fit as though they were made for my feet only. I LOVE them.
Taxi Grey Knee-Length Boots- $20 from a Mom's Buy And Sell Group.
I even took a chance on buying a CHI hair straightener on a Facebook Buy-and-Sell Group.
I use it for work (!!), but I thought, if it doesn't work well, I'll just use it at home on my hair.
Well, friends....it works perfectly.
The person selling apparently had "too many CHI irons". Well, good for ME, I guess!
CHI professional flat iron- $35 off of a Hamilton-based Buy-and-Sell Group.
Even with my hair-stylist discount, I couldn't get CLOSE to that price.
Just another idea for you readers out there on the different avenues you can use to buy second-hand.
Remember- buying second-hand reduces consumption (which produces less pollution, waste, and is more eco-friendly).
Buying from a Buy-and-Sell Facebook Group helps support someone in your very own community.
Check out some Facebook Groups that are based in your community- You'll be glad you did!!
