Why Green Friday?
While we respect those that practice “Buy Nothing Day” on the day after Thanksgiving, we respectfully suggest a compromise. How about “Buy Nothing New Day?” , or as I like to call it – Green Friday. Shopping for resale clothing and consignment accessories at local resale and consignment shops helps the local economy and recycles gently used clothing all in a far more relaxing and sane atmosphere than a big box store. Our resale shops have lots of gift-worthy choices, many consigned, many still new with tags! At Here We Go Again, browse our selection of new accessory items we’ve hand-selected for gift-giving: necklaces, earrings, bracelets, scarves, leggings, socks and more!
I’m not suggesting that everyone in Portland forego the latest i-accessory, Xbox, or whatever is on your family’s wish list this season. I’m hardly a Scrooge-type character, I love the spirit of giving and the beauty and wonder of the holiday season, too! But remember to shop local whenever you can–you’re supporting your neighbors and all the employees who work in local boutiques and shops, whether resale or not!
