Festival of Thrift at Lingfield Point
<< The weekend raised all sorts of questions, such as: what is thrift about? Saving money or individuality, vintage style or sustainability? In any case, being surrounded by makers and menders is wonderful for your wardrobe. It breaks the chain between fashion and turbocharged capitalism, so you can get excited by other stuff: sewing skills, materials, human ingenuity … canned fish. Next year, go there. For now, thrift is a cultural force with staying power. >> - Lucy Siegle, The Guardian
