    All of the items shown in this video are from Wildlife Thrift Store. They have 2 locations in the lower mainland but I usually shop at my local Wildlife Thrift Store in my neighbourhood of Marpole (South Vancouver).

It feels good to shop somewhere that is more socially conscious than most big box stores. And it feels even better to know that they are backing local community initiatives.
