The last 20 years all this has changed and consuming was the main thing because people were encouraged to borrow large amounts of money from the banks to shop. So now there is an abundant of stuff acumulated in Greek households but still there are no shops you can leave the stuff so someone else can profit. (maybe in some big cities there are a few second hand shops but still not popular).
But there are still a few alternatives for second hand finds. Like I said, you can get huge amounts of clothes from family members , like aunts , cousins , sisters and mothers. Outside the family in the local markets where you buy fruits and vegetables, there are always a few stalls that sell clothes in discount prices that some can be second hand. And there has been a few clothes swaps lately in my town quite to my surprise!!!
So every week , after I do my grocery and have some money left I can stroll down some of these stalls and dig into the piles of clothes to occasionally find something really beautiful like today's skirt which cost me just one euro! Is this called thrifting or not?
