Buy Curious: Sales, Swaps, and Expos


As gas prices near $5 a gallon, food prices soar, and our environment turns to shit (cough, cough), many of us are searching for ways to legitimize our still-present shopping habits. (I will only buy organic cotton; I’m supporting the economy; I’m buying high-quality expensive clothes to reduce the likelihood of them ending up in a landfill; I’m helping decrease aesthetic pollution; I’m making myself happier so I won’t have to self-medicate – you get the picture.) No matter what your brand of excuse, this weekend’s East Bay events will provide ample opportunity to put them to use – including a massive clothing swap with cheap food & booze, a DIY expo, and a bunch of sales on high-priced clothes you won’t want to toss away next season. The Decider will thank you.
