The Finders Keepers Markets Melbourne? It's only 2 weeks away. Wanna come? Check out the profiles for a little taste of who will be at the markets... the first image for the Melbourne profiles is one of our cushions which is pretty cool. These markets are well worth the look, they are so well organised. Not only do they have the finest designers there is live music and you can even have a glass of wine or beer while perusing the stalls. Can't wait to meet you all there... come say hi!! Love it!

It's surprising (or not so surprising) how many people out there who have taken these ideas on board in a serious way....
I have been following Katiecrakernuts blog this year and admire her pledge to only buy second hand clothing, while also having a little giggle(with her) along the way and often marvel at her designer bargains!
Via Pia Jane Bijkerk's blog I came across Kim Knelpps a sustainable designer who's quest is to rework what you already have in the wardrobe in 'a bid to pacify the retail urge and reduce fast-fashion consumption', she helps you transform your existing garments into fresh pieces while sharing new ideas for the individual. She can come re-work my wardrobe any day!
So at this stage I am not sure where to start? I need to open my wardrobe! I haven't been a huge shopper of late and have started to make more clothing for myself...hence inspiration for Elkhorn clothing. I have to admit I am not 100% comfortable buying clothing from op shops, as I am super sensitive to musty old smells..
I think it will be more of a life philosophy rather then hard & fast rule. What do you guys think? Has anyone else given it a go out there?
