Spring is here! While the flowers bloom and the sun shines, maybe you’ve considered adding a few pieces to your closet. What could be more ethical and in the spirit of rebirth than buying from small shops that specialize in refurbished clothing and accessories? Stand out from a crowd and sift and thrift through these one-of-a-kind shops. You can visit these stores in person at BUST’s Craftacular on April 23rd in Brooklyn, NY!Screenshot 2016 04 18 at 3.36.17 PM

Ummm hello. Reclaimed vintage pieces? Highly decorated sunnies born from broken broaches and jewelry? Bags with little dino accents? House of Correia has warmed my cold icy heart.
