As the old adage goes, one man's trash is another man's treasure. At Lee Romberg's newly-renovated mens' consignment store Off The Cuff , there are only treasures. Labelled Gucci, Hugo Boss, Dolce & Gabbana and the like, Romberg carries only the very best cast-offs from the closets of...

I suffered and reveled in my own misery for months until one glorious day last summer. I decided to take a trip to a few local thrift stores that I had seen around town. Initially, I had always found it a bit strange to wear clothing previously worn by another person. Thrift stores, in my...

One of my favourite things to do in Christchurch is visiting the Sunday Market, where literally one man's junk is another's treasure. There are so many nicknacks but the best of all is the vintage accessories. Last Sunday, Engy and me stumbled upon this lady who was selling off A LOT of...

"One's man trash is another man's treasure". You've heard that before, right? There are so many people who can turn old junk into something lovely: an old coffee table bought for $8 at a garage sale becomes a fabulous bench, old t-shirts are made into lovely pillowcases, a very old door is...
