Flea Market Insiders is run by vintage & antique enthusiasts who enjoy discovering the world’s best flea markets and antique shops. Their mission is to help their readers find flea markets that are actually worth their time, where they can find true gems, instead of mass-produced fake items. What was started as a passion project by Nicolas Martin in 2010, has quickly become an acclaimed online reference for vintage and antique shopping. Flea Market Insiders blog helps travellers to discover the best flea markets all around the world, provides shopping tips and inspiring home decor ideas. In 2017, they also launched Fleamapket, an interactive, web-based app, featuring reviews of the world’s 300 best flea markets. They are particularly proud of Fleamapket’s flea market calendar, which we created for our premium subscribers. Nicolas, born and raised in France, is an expert on French flea markets and antiques. He loves to decorate his home with unusual vintage objects. His wife disagrees, but he is convinced that one can never own too many antique and vintage chairs, right? Although Paris is still his go-to place to find antique treasures, Nicolas is now based in Vienna, Austria, where he runs Flea Market Insiders. The initial idea behind launching fleamarketinsiders.com was to show the world that it is not always necessary to spend a fortune on new items when you can find amazing things at flea markets that might otherwise get disposed of. They like to think that Flea Market Insiders helps its readers to live a more sustainable lifestyle, where old objects get repurposed & upcycled instead of thrown away. Naturally, they have plenty of flea market shopping tips to share, but the most important advice we have, is this: “Remember, that the most valuable items are not those that you think will be valuable for resale. The really priceless things are the objects you personally love”. Of course, there are hundreds of haggling tips and advice such as “arrive before sunrise”, but the truth is that it actually takes not that much to become a successful treasure hunter. All you need is good spirits, a minimum dose of fantasy, charm and a little bit of perseverance. Your eyes will sharpen over time, and before you realize it, your home will be full of fabulous finds.

At Reborn Closet, we don’t think that clothing lost all its value. We believe in preserving past dreams and memories of lived-in garments. Your carefully selected first-day-of-school outfits, the band t-shirt you wore on your first date, the onesies your newborn quickly grew out of, the college gear that somehow made its way through countless fall Saturdays – these are your memories. They tell your story, where you come from and who you are. Would we waste this? We’re revolutionizing the way we treat your clothing, that has finished its current chapter. We see this as an opportunity to pay homage to its origins while transforming it into a new product and new life that you can cherish for years to come. We hope the end result is changing the way we think about clothing from the start – because we know its future. At Reborn Closet, we take upcycling seriously. We understand that you have options for your outdated or unused garments. We believe that upcycling is the most sustainable option, but with a huge caveat – we have to create meaningful new pieces that will continue to be cherished and used. If we don’t, then we’re not solving your current problem. That’s why we take pride in each creation, and continually strive to create intentional, well-designed pieces.

The boutique Amedeo Canfora was founded in Capri in 1946 by Amedeo, who created an incredible array of sandals, in hundreds of styles and an infinity of colours. They are all handmade in genuine leather and with fabulous decorations using beading, artificial flowers, and other accessories. This said, in the late 1940’s, Capri’s economy was still based almost entirely on fishing and there were only a very few hotels on the island. Opposite to the most important of these, the historic Grand Hotel Quisisana, Amedeo Canfora decided to open a sandal shop. A modest little shop, with a workbench on which to make his sandals, walls hung with soles and costume jewelry, and shelves filled with books in which the measurements of the most important regular clients were recorded and carefully conserved. Today, Amedeo’s daughters Angela and Rita and their families continue the tradition, adding a touch of originality to every annual collection. Many celebrities have been fans of Canfora’s creations, among these the unforgettable Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. More than once, late at night, Amedeo opened the shop just for the first lady, letting her choose her favourite sandals; he made created a style exclusively for her called “K”. Other customers of international fame have been in the shop, including Grace Kelly, Princess Margareth, Princess Caroline, Soraya, Maria Callas, Oona Chaplin, Sofia Loren, Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, Dawn Addams, Anita Ekberg, Naomi Campbell and many others.
“Piedàterre Venezia” an icon of la dolce vita since 1952. From our heritage heart to our handmade soles, Piedàterre is synonymous with Venezia. We are the original and authentic Venetian slipper ‘Friulane’ specialists, pouring decades of Italian ingenuity and world-class craftsmanship into our artisan velvet shoes. Each pair is still handmade in the homes of our community of craftspeople and continues to be one of the most enduring icons of la dolce vita. The traditional Venetian slipper was born in the 19th Century north of Veneto, in Friuli, where, during a period of post-war necessity, Italian families began to stitch together sumptuous velvet curtains from closed theatres and flattened bicycle tyres to make new shoes with genius and flair. Though resourceful, the slippers were beautiful works of craftsmanship, stitched passionately by the region’s women with precision, skill and purpose to put shoes on the feet of their neighbours and loved ones. The slippers quickly found a captive audience in cosmopolitan Venice and its influx of visitors. Versatile, chic and - crucially - non-slip, the design was perfect for navigating the city’s cobbled streets. In 1952, a dreaming businessman and his cart full of handmade slippers took a spot on the historic Rialto Bridge. Piedàterre was born. Fuelled by a swathe of enchanted shoppers, the cart remained faithfully in place for 40 years, before the doors of the Piedàterre Rialto store swung open to become the first store in Venice dedicated solely to the historic slipper. Today, Piedàterre slippers are a symbol of la dolce vita across the world, bringing understated chic and a timeless sensibility to contemporary wardrobes from Piazza San Marco aperitivos to New York red carpets and Amalfi Coast sunsets. Each pair is unique, crafted to the highest quality from 100% natural cotton velvet and hand-stitched by our network of Italian craftspeople. Our historic Rialto store and our Campo Santo Stefano flagship remain Venice’s original shops, focused solely on the traditional Venetian slipper. Every shelf explodes with colour. Timeless and 100% made in Italy, Piedàterre’s slippers continue to be our ode to the ingenious Italian spirit that forever finds beauty wherever it looks.
In the 1980s, Tony Margolis, Bob Emfield and their wives mused about never leaving the beach. This led to the invention of a character named Tommy Bahama. By asking "What would Tommy wear?" and imagining the details of his life, they unwittingly created the springboard for a new brand and the Tommy Bahama Group, Inc. In 1991, Tony and Bob discussed their concept with Lucio Dalla Gasperina. From the outset, the three envisioned the kind of upscale casual apparel Tommy would wear: printed silk shirts and tailored pants for refined island living. They soon launched a collection of menswear that transported people to an island state of mind and celebrated the best part of the week - the weekend. Tommy Bahama has since become a total "island lifestyle" experience that includes men's and women's clothing and accessories, food, cocktails, home furnishings, beach gear and more. From days at the water's edge to elegant evenings out on the town, their guests are treated to subtle textures and refined finishes that are all carefully considered and meticulously crafted. Since 2003, the Tommy Bahama Group has been wholly owned by Oxford Industries, Inc., an international apparel design, sourcing and marketing company. Oxford's acquisition of Tommy Bahama gave the brand more exposure and the secure financial backing to grow. They share their values and respect their desire to maintain the unique culture of the brand. Tommy Bahama is committed to extending the relaxed, positive vibe of our brand into philanthropic efforts. Their primary areas of focus are cancer research, assistance for disadvantaged families and children, and the ethical treatment of animals. Their support of the Garden of Hope and Courage is an example of this commitment. Janet Emfield (wife of Bob) was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1990; she envisioned a peaceful garden in the midst of a sterile hospital setting. In 2004, the Garden of Hope and Courage Foundation became a reality. Its goals: to increase public awareness of breast cancer; to improve early detection and treatment; and to fund research. Since 1996, they've donated a percentage of sales from apparel and accessories designed specifically for this cause. They donate to hundreds of other organizations including Make-A-Wish Foundation®, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, United Way, American Heart Association, Gift of Life, Shane Victorino Foundation, Ryan House, Food Bank for New York City, Citymeals-on-Wheels, Olive Crest and the Humane Society. Their retail stores also provide community support by hosting events like Shop for a Cause, with a portion of the profits from the events going to local charities. And each of their restaurants sponsors annual golf tournaments to raise funds for the local non-profit organizations of their choice.
At thredUP, we believe in a sustainable fashion future. Thrifting is about more than just finding amazing deals on your favorite brands. It’s about shopping with intention, rejecting throwaway fashion culture, and standing for sustainability. The clothes we wear have the power to create change. Thrifting Can Help Solve the Fashion Waste Crisis. Our love for constant newness has come at too high a price for our planet. Shopping secondhand reduces the cost of fashion by giving new life to used clothes. Resale moves us one step closer to a circular fashion future. New clothing production is hurting the planet. One new garment takes 77 gallons of water and creates 17 lbs of CO2e. Over 100B garments are produced each year, which is 2X more than 15 years ago. Perfectly good clothing is being discarded. 1 in 2 people throw their clothes straight in the trash. 73% of apparel is sent to landfill or incinerated, 95% of which could be reused or recycled. Extending the life of clothes fights fashion waste. Shopping secondhand displaces the need for new clothing production and diverts items from landfills. Buying one used item reduces its carbon, waste, and water footprints by 82%. In 2009, our co-founder & CEO James Reinhart realized he had a closet full of clothes he didn’t wear. He wasn’t alone. He knew there was value in those clothes, and “looking back at that moment, I certainly didn’t appreciate how that insight could eventually upend how we look at innovation in retail, the apparel industry, and our environment.” We’re an online consignment & thrift store, where you can constantly refresh your style while creating less waste. At ThredUP, we created a smarter way to shop and sell. We deliver a modern resale experience on one of the largest online platforms for women’s and kids’ secondhand apparel, providing a fun and convenient place to shop and clean out your closet. The circular closet, powered by proprietary technology. We’re able to process and recirculate clothing at an extraordinary speed and scale, all in support of sustainable fashion, freer closets, and a better world. thredUP does good for people and the planet. We give new life to millions of used clothes, offsetting the environmental and financial cost of fashion. We’ve made it our job to educate consumers and bring awareness to the global fashion waste crisis. We created a first-of-its-kind carbon calculator to help consumers understand how their fashion habits contribute to climate change. Our industry report highlights the rapidly emerging resale economy, which is estimated to grow to $36 billion by 2024, and includes a fashion waste analysis that shines a light on the global issues of overproduction, disposable fashion culture, and single-use fashion. We teamed up with designer Zero Waste Daniel to create an upcycled collection made entirely from secondhand garments and fabric scraps. thredUP’s customers get to shop the closets of their favorite celebrities and influencers, and thrift gets a celeb-endorsed popularity boost. We believe our impact can be amplified when we join forces with the broader fashion industry. thredUP is powering resale for some of the world’s leading fashion retailers and brands, like Walmart, Madewell, and Reformation.
Swap Society is on a mission to make sustainable fashion, accessible to all. Swap Society is an online clothing swap that makes it easy and affordable to mix up your wardrobe sustainably. Send them your clothes that don't fit or aren't your current style and swap them for clothes you want to wear now. Their alt currency SwapCoin™ gives multidimensional value to garments and makes sure you get equal value for the clothes you swap, so our swap is super fair. Plus, you'll save lots of money on clothes while lowering your clothing footprint. We accept all brands and sizes because we believe that all wearable clothing should be kept in circulation for as long as possible. Swap Society harnesses technology to promote circularity in the fashion industry. Our circular business model is a sustainable alternative to the take-make-dispose linear consumption model and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, and waste. We envision a fashion future that emphasizes extending the life of garments through proper care and reuse. “I love fashion, but I don’t think the clothes we wear should harm the environment or our fellow humans. When I learned the truths about the fashion industry, I started looking for alternatives and started swapping with women in my local community. It was easier than trying to resell my clothes, and I was hooked. I launched Swap Society in 2017 to take swapping to the next level and make it available online to women across the USA. Clothes swapping is fun, saves money, and is more sustainable than shopping. When you swap, you don't have to sacrifice style at all to have a more sustainable wardrobe!” says Nicole Robertson, the Founder and CEO of Swap Society. Prior to founding Swap Society, Nicole’s passion for the environment led her to work as VP of Marketing for bioplastics manufacturer Cereplast. A cosmetics industry veteran, she previously held senior-level positions for beauty companies including Beautyfix by Dermstore.com, Fred Segal Beauty and Procter & Gamble’s Reflect. She is also an accomplished musician and retired dancer who lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their two sons. The average American sends 70 pounds of clothes to landfills every year. That’s 21 billion pounds of post-consumer textile waste per year! Total greenhouse gas emissions from textiles production, at 1.2 billion tonnes annually, are more than those of all international flights and maritime shipping combined. Less than 20% of what gets donated to charities gets resold. The majority of people who make clothes for the global market live in poverty, and are subject to exploitation, working in unsafe and dirty conditions with very little pay. 36 million people are living in modern slavery today, many of who are working in the supply chains of Western brands, and 80% of garment workers are women. Let go of the clothes that don't fit or aren't your current style and swap them for clothes you want to wear now. Swap Society makes it easy and affordable to mix up your wardrobe sustainably.
Thrift+ was founded to make the charity shopping experience as good as the best online clothes retailers, ensuring fewer clothes end up in landfill. Our founder, Joe Metcalfe, left his job in 2014 with the mission of bringing charity shops online. In 2015, he built & launched the UK's first Click & Collect app for high street charity shops. In 2017, Thrift+ was born, and we’ve been growing ever since. We’re building the best online shopping experience for second-hand clothes while making it easy for individuals and brands to re-sell unwanted items and give them a new life. At the same time, they also raise important funds for charity. Sales of second hand clothes are predicted to over take sales of new clothes in the next few years, and we want to accelerate that journey by working alongside brands & retailers. Thrift+ is our way to help clean up the fashion industry, bring the fun back to buying new clothes, and create a circular economy that reduces waste and builds a more sustainable future.

The destination for luxury recommerce, Hewi boasts an expert curation of brands and an unparalleled commitment to customer service for buyers and sellers alike. A forerunner in resale, since its inception in 2012 the platform has pioneered and paved the way for pre-owned fashion, revolutionising the industry in building a circular economy that's now leading global conversation and urgent change in how the world shops luxury. "We knew it was a good idea from the start", says Tatiana Wolter-Ferguson, Hewi's chief executive officer, who founded the company with her mother, Sharon, and sister, Natalya. "We were moving from the south of France to the U.K., we were going through our wardrobes, deciding what we should and shouldn't keep and we kept telling each other, "I've hardly ever worn this - sell it," she explains, adding, "Other people were taking storage units, additional home space or even new houses for these wardrobes. Because of the quality of these pieces, it was never stock that was going to end up in landfill, so we wanted to create this safe space where members could benefit - and profit - from giving their pre-loved fashion a new lease of life." Headquartered in Mayfair in the heart of London, Hewi also offers a VIP service to sellers from the worlds of fashion, film, and royalty, helping them to manage their wardrobes and decide what to sell on. The business has become a global brand, recently collaborating with Sotheby's to create its first ever luxury handbag and accessories auction; and partnering with Vogue to host a sale of items from the wardrobes of 23 supermodels including Kate Moss and Gigi Hadid with proceeds going to charity. Combining digital innovation with unequalled sartorial expertise and bespoke customer service, Hewi honours brands and empowers people to drive fashion forward for good. It's All Good.

At Goodfair, we’ve created a unique online thrift store experience that encourages our customers to go beyond shopping secondhand and become full-fledged conscious consumers. Our mission of “No New Things” cuts down on the need for low wage factories and combats clothing waste and pollution that are the result of fast fashion. There are already so many clothes in circulation that conventional thrift stores and recycling plants can hardly keep up with donations. And, unfortunately, global R&D efforts have yet to produce a scalable method for recycling fibers. That’s where we come in! We rescue clothes on their way to landfills, quality check them, and then wrap them up in unique thrifted bundles just for you. Fast fashion provides trendy clothing at cheap prices, but it comes at a tremendous cost. The fast fashion industry doesn’t want you to know just how bad its practices are, but we’re here to help you get educated. Browse fast fashion statistics and data related to carbon pollution, water waste, labor violations, and more. Then share with your friends and family — become and advocate for change! Shopping secondhand is so much more than a trend! The benefits of buying thrifted apparel go far beyond obtaining that elusive “vintage or worn-in” look.

Ossi, a seasoned ecommerce and logistics professional, and his wife, had their first baby in the spring of 2013. It was obvious to them that it makes both ecological and financial sense to buy second hand. Most baby gear are in perfect condition after one or two previous owners, and cost a fraction of the new equivalents, let alone the environmental footprint of producing new. Unfortunately, the local flea markets didn’t have everything Ossi’s family needed. As an online retail professional, Ossi finally found all the missing items from various internet marketplaces. But the effort of doing that was certainly a major unnecessary hassle in the house with a newborn. Scanning through Facebook groups and various classifieds sites, negotiating prices and delivery costs, agreeing shipments and trying to avoid fraudulent sellers was all too much when searching for dozens of necessities worth a few euros each. And it wasn’t once or twice when the perfect product-seller-delivery-payment match led to nothing, as the product had already been sold to someone else. Of course, the problem was not confined to new parents. Many of us have too many unused items at home that we simply could not get to new homes with reasonable effort. Most people had thousands of euros lying in their shelves and cupboards, simply because there was no way to monetize them easily. All of us need something new almost daily, but most of us prefer buying a 2nd hand product if it is easily available. By the time the baby was crawling, Ossi had decided to fix the problem. He wanted to create an online space where all products for normal life can find a second home after they are not needed any more. Not only the expensive and prestigious ones, but also everything we needed for our daily lives some months ago, but not anymore. Europe is full of products that are not being used by the owner, but that are still valuable for someone else. The monetary value of each product is low, but making all these products move effortlessly around Europe to those who need them next was Ossi’s dream. This dream became Netflea.com.

I’ve always craved seeing the world, and even more so, Europe. After studying in Italy in college, I’ve been obsessed with travel. I just want more of it. I started The Flying Mum blog to show other parents that your wanderlust doesn’t have to end when you have kids. You just have to be more prepared with different expectations! Now that we have kids, I want to make sure we get the most out of our trips, so I’m on a hunt, albeit obsessive, for crazy adventures! We’ve done zip lining, via ferrata, crazy hard hikes, suspension bridges, cliff walks, alpine slides, water slides, and we’re just getting started! And that means, the kids are comin’! But I’m not stoppin there. I want to help all children be able to travel more easily, no matter their abilities or disabilities. That’s why I’ve started a clothing line – to help raise funds for my cause, in partnership with Wonders Within Reach. I think it’s my work as a physical therapist in a trauma center that motivates me. Seeing sick and dying patients every day, I see firsthand that tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. Start living today. Many think my husband and I are cuh-razy for traveling with kiddos. But we think we’d be crazy NOT to! We love the adventure of it all. We hope you will too! Not convinced? Read my Top 10 Reasons to Travel With Your Baby or Toddler. Explore my site for adventure ideas, tips, gear, and destination guides. The Flying Mum has just launched a Clothing with a Cause range.
We are Sealand, a lifestyle brand that is focused on responsibly made gear and apparel. Our mission is to ensure that every decision we make keeps the planet and its people front and centre. All Sealand bags and apparel are handmade by valued craftspeople from waste or responsibly and ethically sourced materials. These materials are then combined with high-quality hardware, conscious design, and expert craftsmanship to create gear that will last a lifetime. The upcycled and responsibly sourced materials we source are sturdy and weather resistant, making them perfect for any adventure – no matter if on land or sea. We believe that out the box creativity, innovation and considered action are required to mitigate the generation of waste. Sealand was founded in 2015 by two surfers, a dog and a Cruiser. They trekked around the country together in search of the best waves and a dream. Today, that dream is lived out at the Sealand Campus where professionalism meets laid back living. Nestled somewhere in the folds of the iconic Table Mountain, a short drive from where the waves curl onto the shores of Hout Bay Beach, you’ll find our Sealand Campus. It’s a place where functional design meets bold action; where wave riders and adventure seekers come together in a collective effort to affect positive change within the lifestyle brand industry. At Sealand, we understand that the oceans, outdoors and urban spaces we call home need protecting. Each of us at Sealand nurture a personal connection with nature and are inspired by our home’s rich biodiversity. We surf, run, hike, camp and skate – whatever activities we can do to get out into Mother Nature and connect with people. We’re all on a mission to protect the outdoors and empower our communities. We’re as passionate about environmentally responsible fashion as we are about catching the perfect barrel at daybreak. To us, life is about adventure, community and appreciating the simple things, which we weave into every Sealand product. We encourage ourselves and others to approach the things we do and the way we behave in a new way. We explore the unfamiliar or unknown with a curious, questioning mind and always put people and the planet first. Sealand forms part of the vibrant South African community and environment around it, while dedicating itself to profound social and environmental impact.

Nestled in the heart of the Apulian countryside, among the green foliage of two thousand and four hundred olive trees, Mazzarelli Creative Resort is a 5-star Boutique Hotel ideal for those who choose to spend a refined holiday dedicated to relaxation and Made in Italy excellence. A Creative Resort was born from the experience of the Mazzarelli shirt factory. That of the Mazzarelli is a story that moves on the thread of passion. A story that has its roots in knowledge and experience, handed down from generation to generation. It is the story of a family that sees Domenico at the helm with his wife Tonia and his daughters Monica and Mariangela. Puglia is the place where everything starts, this is where this beautiful, long and positive story begins. A lively region, rich in beauty and culture, a region that knows how to preserve the knowledge of the past but which also knows how to look to the future. It is precisely in Puglia that Mazzarelli decides to give birth to a new story, a new bet: a manor house from the end of the 19th century is transformed into a welcoming accommodation facility, designed for those who choose to visit Puglia in all its beauty and immerse themselves in the fascinating reality of a historic company, which produces Made in Italy tailoring products of excellence. Mazzarelli Creative Resort was born from this idea, a 5-star resort in Polignano a Mare surrounded by over 2400 olive trees in a 20-hectare countryside. The tailor's room is a magical place steeped in history and tradition. Here you can live a personalized and unique tailoring experience by requesting your garment: an exclusive Mazzarelli tailored shirt made by hand with fine fabrics in cotton, wool or linen. Dall'esperienza della camiceria Mazzarelli nasce un Creative Resort. Quella dei Mazzarelli è una storia che si muove sul filo della passione. Una storia che affonda le sue radici nella conoscenza e nell’esperienza, tramandate da generazione in generazione. È la storia di una famiglia che vede al timone Domenico con sua moglie Tonia e le sue figlie Monica e Mariangela. La Puglia è il luogo in cui tutto nasce, è da qui che inizia questa storia bella, lunga e positiva. Una regione viva, ricca di bellezza e di cultura, una regione che sa custodire il sapere del passato ma che sa anche guardare al futuro. Proprio in Puglia Mazzarelli decide di far nascere una nuova storia, una nuova scommessa: una villa padronale di fine ‘800 si trasforma in un’accogliente struttura ricettiva, pensata per chi sceglie di visitare la Puglia in tutta la sua bellezza e di immergersi nell’affascinante realtà di un’azienda storica, che produce prodotti sartoriali Made in Italy di eccellenza. Da questa idea nasce Mazzarelli Creative Resort, un resort 5 stelle a Polignano a Mare circondato da oltre 2400 alberi di ulivo in un agro di 20 ettari.
