I realise that I am embarrassingly late to the party but I had only just begun to come round to the idea - for myself, that is.
I recently discovered that Helena of The Junior had amassed an amazing haul of heart-stoppingly cute second-hand childrenswear. A graphic designer who lives in Norway with her husband and adorable toddler, Helena has an unbridled passion for all things vintage and a great eye for detail.

She decided to sell a few select pieces in her new webshop and this got me thinking.
Buying second-hand is not only a brilliant way to reduce one's carbon footprint but a means of getting one-off pieces. Also, if a garment has survived the natural wear and tear that toddlers are known to inflict upon their garments, that can only bear testament to its quality.
I think I have talked myself into this sufficiently, don't you?
Helena plans to update her webshop regularly so I shall be keeping my eyes peeled for some yummy finds.
