Secondhand Sunday

Secondhand Sunday

By Stephanie Seferian

Is that Christmas in the air, or is it capitalism? There's no doubt about it: overconsumption degrades the planet. Enter Secondhand Sunday, a new-ish shopping holiday that's nestled between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It's dedicated to all-things thrifted and redirects shoppers away from mass consumption and toward pre-loved items instead.  On today's show Poshmark's Kelly Mason inspires us to think differently about shopping during the holidays. (P.S. Are you putting up your Christmas tree this weekend?

This is what market research says [15:00] Skeptics, unite! How to best dip your toe into the secondhand lifestyle [21:00] Why it's individual voices (a.k.a. yours and mine) that contribute to the collective gifting mindset shift  This show is listener-supported. Thank you for supporting!
