The Little Thrift House
Lauren Reis is the creator and curator of The Little Thrift House – a local Instagram shop that provides an affordable and socially responsible way to purchase stylish clothes for your little ones. The Little Thrift House offers some new and preloved clothes NB to size 12 in curated bundles.
Lauren is a mom of three who saw limited sustainable local options for dressing her kids without compromising style. “I love to dress my kids in quality stylish clothes”, says Lauren. “However, it is hard to ignore the impact fast-fashion has on the environment. I want to raise our children to be socially responsible and I couldn’t ignore the waste my love for fashion was creating.” Lauren has two daughters very close in age and after they reached the age of two she didn’t know what to do with their outgrown clothes. “Once they outgrew them, most of their clothes were packed away in boxes and put in the basement. I thought, there has to be a way to get quality clothes that have been gently loved to other families who want to love them again.” This is where Lauren got the idea for The Little Thrift House.
The Little Thrift House’s mission is to provide families with a sustainable option for purchasing their little one’s clothes without compromising style. “We are hoping to destigmatize shopping second hand”, says Lauren. “We’re here to show shopping sustainably can be a wonderful experience! So much love and care goes into everything we do, including our packaging. Everything can be recycled again after use.”
The Little Thrift House is excited to announce their “Sell to Us” feature, a concierge-style service where they pick up, process, photo, style and sell your quality outgrown kids clothes. “We are thrilled to provide London with an affordable sustainable option for purchasing children’s clothes. As the The Little Thrift House continues to grow, we are hopeful it will have a lasting positive effect on our environment and consumer habits.”
Follow along with them and shop their Instagram @thelittlethrifthouse with product launches happening every Monday night at 8pm. Lauren and the Little Thrift House team cannot thank you enough for your dedication to shopping local, making sustainable choices for your family and your support! “Together, we are reducing our textile waste footprint!”
