The holidays are just around the corner. Why not choose vintage goods? Buying second-hand is eco-friendly in that you are not using new resources and energy to produce a new item. In addition, I find that vintage items were made to last - therefore they are better quality. Finally, the items may be more unique because they are not mass-produced.
Unlike our Lionhead bunnies, I’m not a fan of eating carrots. I’m also not that fond of sauerkraut. But I know that these foods are packed with health benefits.
