The Exchange

I have been back in San Francisco for 7 months. I stumbled upon this video of The Exchange and wanted to share it here. I mentioned The Exchange in a previous post but basically it is a Salvation Army-esque thrift store, but instead of a set price on goods, you pay what you can. So incredibly smart!  Here is the story of The Exchange. I love that the founder says that their mission is education. He also says, “I love to make chaos out of order.” There’s a thought for you to chew on. 😉 He refers to the basis of The Exchange as ART:  Appropriate Recycling Technology. The idea is being able to use things in a certain time, place, and which are appropriate. I have seen many Exchange-finds be used in new and innovative ways. Oh, Orcas Island. ❤
