Give new life to old treasures as a re-gift this holiday season


Christmas is known as the season of giving. Specifically, give Christmas gifts.

And with inflation prices punching Americans’ pockets and shipping delays, it’s even harder to shop for what you want. Many Americans are predicted to give less this season.

But many often forget, when thinking about what to give as a gift, that giving back gifts is a wonderful way to breathe new life into old treasures.

But during a re-gift, where should you look, if they can’t find something to pass on in their own home?

Second Time Around Consignment owner Roberta Hamlet says consignment stores offer a unique range of gift options at a great price.

Roberta Hamlet, Owner, Second Time Around: “Anything vintage, high school kids love. We have all kinds of gift items you can find. Everything from vintage and coins to you know your holiday fashion items, ugly sweaters galore! “

And she adds that one of the best things about holiday shopping at a consignment store is that they offer unique items that can’t be found everywhere.

Roberta Hamlet, Owner, Second Time Around: “They’re one of a kind, so if you buy a photo from us, you don’t go to your neighbor’s house and see the same photo, it’s one-of-a-kind. . There is glassware your grandmother had on her table. When you browse the store, you will see a lot of souvenirs.

And with so many people struggling to receive their vacation shipments … Searching locally is the best option for leaving with a gift in hand.

Roberta Hamlet, Owner, Second Time Around: “You can come here and buy a sofa or a bed and you can take it home, there is no waiting”

So whether you’re looking for a last minute giveaway, a unique item, or you just don’t want to deal with shipping and handling this Christmas, consider shopping local and shopping second-hand.
