The Story of Stuff

Everyone needs to spend 20 minutes and watch this old but good video, the story of stuff. It's a sobering reminder about how we've become such an unsustainable, and consuming society, and the real cost of the stuff we buy. It might even change the way you think about what you want, what you need, and how you choose to spend your money. Reinforces the idea of buying vintage, handmade & local.

Here are some local designers below who fit the bill, reusing vintage materials in their creations.

Patsy in Light Blue Floral $65

KAYO Asymmetrical Wrap-Vest $85
