Yes, you read that right, STAN is opening its own pop-up thrift store the Kot Kringwinkel! From the 12th of September to the 12th of October, STAN and Kringwinkel Antwerpen transform our TakeOff into the heaven of second hand. At our Kot Kringwinkel you will find unique items to furnish your new dorm, pimp your old one or mix and match a brand new outfit to start the new academic year. Come and read with me why our Kot Kringwinkel is a match made in heaven for students in Antwerp.
‘Hi STAN, can we go thriftshopping?’
Macklemore knew that he was gonna pop some tags with only 20 dollars in his pocket and the whole world followed: ‘Can we go thriftshopping?!’ While secondhand shopping has become a global trend, there keep on being critical voices. But why is thriftshopping the way to go? Let us tell you about all the benefits this habit has! Thrift stores are the more sustainable way of shopping because they reduce wasteand create opportunities for recycling. You’re not going to throw away those pants you bought in the wrong size, are you? Or a vintage picture frame that’s still in great shape doesn’t belong in the trash, does it? This is exactly why you can find beautiful items of good quality at half the price in a thrift store. What’s not to love!
