You don’t have ordinary friends, so why buy ordinary presents?

Your friends are inventive, imaginative, fun-loving and perhaps even a teeny bit frivolous.

They’re anything but BORING, right?

So why would you go to a chain store and buy them a BORING holiday gift, when you could explore your local consignment, thrift, or resale shops for something as unique as they are. Here’s some examples from across the continent (please bear in mind that these wonderful items are in all likelihood gone to a new owner… but remember too, that resale shops get new merchandise in all the time, so there’s a treasure or three just waiting for you.)
