SustainACTIVITY: Vintage styles and clothing swaps

This one is for the style junkies out there.  Here’s a video highlighting a Chicago-based vintage stylist… shown on, from Conscious Living TV on Vimeo.

Although it’s nothing new to folks who have lived frugally on the clothing side, altered and tailored clothing represents the potential for great creativity and demand for those skills in a more sustainable economy.  I’ve never learned to sew, and it’s something I could have but did not demand to learn as a child.  Sewing class anyone?

And for this Weekend:


Sunday, Oct 17
Amarachi Lounge (325 Franklin btwn Clifton & Greene, BK, NY)
Bring: $5 and no less than 5 items to swap
