Tor’s Thrifty Store was born from a desire to make your style scene a little cleaner, greener—and more fun.
Despite 20 years’ experience in fashion, I used to be ignorant of the industry’s harmful effects on the planet. But the truth is, the fashion world was built on churning out a full calendar of collections, promoting fresh must-have trends and feeding a need for newness. As I started to think about the negative impact of the industry I loved, I realized there was an opportunity to create positive change.
I had a lightbulb moment. Soon my friends and I were digging out tagged styles from the back of our closets…They became Tor’s Thrifty Store’s first offerings!
Today, Tor’s Thrifty Store is an ethically-minded resale platform that gives great clothes a second chance. Every purchase made with us instead of a mainstream retailer selling new goods brings us closer to a sustainable future.
My goal is to offer everyone a piece of curated, preloved luxury and encourage fashion enthusiasts to set their own style agenda by investing better and buying less.
A fabulous outfit makes you look great and feel great, too. It can turn a “fine day” into a “yay! day.” Add to that feeling by thrifting your fashionable favourites guilt-free with us.
If you don’t adore something, pass it on. It will become someone else’s treasure.
Enjoy your slice of luxury pie.
Tor, Founder of Tor’s Thrifty Store
