My theory in second hand stuffs. 二手物品

I bought these second hand children dresses in Value-Village yesterday (look at the price I paid :) ), V V is a store that selling all re-usable cloths, housewares, all kind of accessories, household items and many more. Everything was 50% off yesterday, so I bought these dresses for my grand-nieces in KL, only because they don't mind second hand stuffs.
I love this store, I know some people don't like buying used-stuffs, for me, I really don't mind, the items that on sale here are mostly in good condition especially clothing, I guess because we have 4 season's here, so, people love spending money every season's change or when there are new products out in the market (human kind, the desire to own everything, have everything), they will give away old yet good stuffs to this store for re-sale.My Theory is simple (This week IF topic), kid grow up fast, there's really no need to spend lots of money on children clothing when I can spend less buying cheap yet good quality re-use clothing here. Other than saving, I also have a little contribution on the Global warming problem, I Re-cycle, Re-use and Re-duce. Best of All this store will donate part of the money to Charity. I see lots of benefits in using, re-use second hand stuffs....前天我去VV買了幾件裙子給我姪仔的兩位公主。這都是二手的衣服,我知道有些人對二手的東西有所保留,不過我卻不介意, 也知道姪仔和他太太也不介意我才會買這些裙子的。
VV是一間二手百貨公司,賣的東西可多,有電器、衣服、家具、家庭廚具、鞋子、書本、雜誌 等等,大部份品質還是很好。可能有些人的慾望太多,一有新產品或換季時就去買下新款的物品,之後一些認為過時的衣、物就用不著了,他們就會送去這一間二手店便買。
這些被認為廢物的東西我卻認為是寶哦(of course, in reasonable conditions..)!尤其小孩子的衣物,他們長的快大的快,如果在此可以買到一些便宜又好的二手衣物,何樂而不為呢!我對二手物品的理論不但可以節省家中的消費,對環境也有好處,可以減少垃圾之餘,也十分環保,因為將好的"廢物"再循環利用呀!更有意義是這一間二手店將收入除去開支,將一半的錢捐獻慈善團體,所以我對這些二手物品不反感!
