The Art of Re-use

This video has been making the rounds of the cooler blogs and sites around the web. Apparently, a collective of style aficionados from Toronto travel to neighboring cities setting up pop-up shops filled with the choice pieces of local thrift stores. I really appreciate the concept of taking what some consider a pretty lowly experience and injecting it with class and sophistication. I do a lot of thrift shopping myself with about 25% of my wardrobe being stuff I bought second hand. Seeing what these guys do is really inspiring and informs some of the recent retail work I'm delving into. There's a great editorial and interview over at The Madbury Club that's definitely worth checking out as well.
