With the holidays coming, tough economic times and trying to reduce our carbon footprints, why not try some secondhand gifts. You can find wonderful items that would make great gifts in creative places like used books on Amazon, used, vintage and antique items on internet sites like eBay, Craig’s List and Freecycle and secondhand stores around your town like Goodwill and Salvation Army. A couple of my favorite secondhand places in Eau Claire are Eclectica on Grand and Piney Hills Antiques. Over the years I’ve found great things for my home as well as gifts for friends. Hey, you can even look around your own home. Just remember to make sure it’s something the recipient would really want or need. Don’t just re-gift to get it out of your house.
