SECONDHAND FIRST: Link-up + Express Yourself

We've already featured Becky and her shop already last year, but Pink Cheetah Vintage deserves a return visit. Becky's always got a fresh crop of colorful and bold vintage items in her shop, and her warmth can be felt from her present digs in Asheville, North Carolina all the way across the interwebs. She's always got a kind word, and a supportive gesture, whether it be her liking something on Facebook, sharing a tweet or commenting on Instagram, Becky is there to cheer you on! 

So, here's a chance to cheer her back. 

Pink Cheetah Vintage exemplifies the values of shopping SECONDHAND FIRST. Becky's shopping choices that she makes for her family are all about  being sustainable and ethical, and she personally looks for secondhand options before she buys anything new. As a small business person, Becky is part of the booming cottage industry that helps keep our economy going, while keeping usable items out of our landfills. As an artist, her eye is keen on colorful and expressive clothing, so when you shop her goods at Pink Cheetah Vintage, you're sure to find plenty of ways to purr-fectly express yourself on the go! 

You can express yourself over at her Etsy shop: Pink Cheetah Vintage and if you use promo code ROSEBUD between now and March 5th, you can get 10% off your purchase! 

Be sure to find + follow Pink Cheetah Vintage on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Now it's time to share your #SECONDHANDFIRST looks. Please feel free to leave a link to one of your looks featuring a sustainably shopped garment, accessory or item that's been swapped, thrifted shopped or ethically produced + sourced. We'll be hosting this first ever SHOP SECONDHAND FIRST event for one week, so you'll have plenty of time to share and be social. 

If you know some one (including yourself) that deserves to be featured as a #SECONDHANDFIRST SHOPPER, SELLER or ICON, please let us know in the comments.

I love Becky, she's got wonderful taste and a wicked sense of fun. Secondhand? Oh yeah. The less money wasted on clothes the more cash left for life! xxxx

The photo with Becky playing the accordion, wearing those amazing trousers and saddle shoes...and serenading a skeleton is beyond priceless! I love it. I'm linking up today because I have been sewing garments made from fabric pieces purchased at thrift stores! Thanks for hosting!!!

Everything I wear is always second hand. I don´t remember when I bought anything new.
Thank you for this chance to join.
Will you share-in-Style today?

Sounds like an amazing idea to me! I am sharing two posts today, one with two clothing items thrifted at Goodwill, and another post with an accessory (scarf) thrifted at the same Goodwill! Thank you for hosting, Bella!!
