Second hand shopping ehk isetut heategu pole olemas

Ma olen suuuuuuuur taaskasutuse ja second hand poodide sõber. Viimased paar aastat ei ole ma põhimõtteliselt isegi kaubanduskeskustes käinud (noh nii et kohe shoppamas või nii), vaid soetan suurema osa asjadest mõnest taaskasutuspoest. Põhjuseid on rohkem kui üks, nt 1) hinnad on kordades soodsamad, 2) leida võib tõeliselt uskumatuid pärleid, 3) võid kindel olla, et sama asi ei ole igal teisel samal ajal seljas 4) heategevus.

Eile sattusin ma Moelvis juhuslikult Storgatal mööda sõitma sellisest poest nagu Ting og Tøy. Lillehammeri samas poes on suurepärane valik cd-sid ja dvd-sid (hinnad ca 2 eur/tk) ja ma tahtsin näha, kas ma ehk leian Idale mõned norra keelsed filmid. Läks nii hästi, et ma sain lisaks muule ka Kardemoni linna röövlite ja Vahtramäe Emili cd. Ja “øisteini pliiatsi”. See viimane on selline khuul lastesaade, kus mees nimega øistein õpetab joonistama, nii et natuke pingutades oskab ka minusugune täielik võhik mingeid naljakaid kasse ja trolle joonistada. Dvd kaanel on näha C tähte, mis kassiks muutus. Geniaalsed ja kihvtid ideed. IMG_3061.JPG

Endale sain ma linase Noa Noa kleidi (50nok) ja kaelaeehte (20nok) ja siis leidsin ma SELLE, mida ma juba eraldi postituses näitasin. Pluus on küll kahjuks väike (komplekt oli ilmselt valesti kokku pandud), nii et kui kellelgi on vaja rahvariidelikku pluusi suuruses 86, mul on. Kingad sain ka Idale. Praktiliselt kandmata. Täpselt parajad. 20 nokIMG_3005.JPGIMG_3065.JPGIMG_3063.JPG

Kui ma siis maksma läksin, selgus et minu kaart selles poes ei toimi. Mul oli rahakotis sularaha vaid pool sellest summast, mis vaja läks ja teate mis…ma sain täpselt 50% allahindlust. Ei mingit “mine otsi sularahaautomaat” või muud sellist, lihtsalt äärmiselt sümpaatne suhtumine.

Täna kui meie kohvreid pakkisin, sorteerisin ma ka natuke riideid ning mänguasju. Neid on ikka kogunenud. Ma otsustasin need sinna poodi viia. Mitte et ma oleks ainus või teinud midagi nii üllast, kuid mind võeti vastu nagu heategijat, keda ette ja taha tänati, nii et mul paratamatult tekkis selline hea tunne sisse. Et olen päeva õigesti alustanud või nii. Ma lubasin järgmine kord kui kohvreid pakin, jälle kriitilise pilguga asjad üle vaadata. Kellelgi on neid asju kindlasti rohkem vaja. Kusjuures osa tulust selles poes läheb Eesti, Läti , Leedu, Rumeenia abivajajatele. 2x kohe hea tunne oli. Kunagi jäi mulle kõrvu üks selline lause, et isetut heategu ei ole olemas. Ei ole jah vist. Sest mina sain vastutasuks sellele kotitäiele asjadele hea enesetunde. See hea tunne.

Kui satute siia kanti (Moelv on 20-25 km Lillehammerist), siis külastage kindlasti seda Storgatal asuvat poodi.

// I am ahuge fan of reuse and second hand/vintage clothes. I think it happened when I was preagnant with Ida that I suddenly almost stopped shopping in “real” stores. Of course I’ve been to shopping centres and regular shops, but I find second hand shops with much more soul. The prices are good, the choices are better, you don’t have to be worried that everyone else is wearing the same thing and then there’s of course the part of charity. It’s important to help others. I hope one day I can do more than I do now.

But back to the topic. Yesterday I by accident drove by a Ting & Tøy second hand store in Moelv. Right on Storgata. Of course I stopped, because in Ting & Tøy Lillehammer there are wonderful things to find. And they have dvd-s and cd-s. Last I bought “Once we were warriors” ( a new zealand movie, which Faylyn introduced me) and “Men of Honour”. For 40 Nok. Today I hoped to find some movies and cds to Ida. In Norwegian, so that perhaps she will keep a bit of Norwegian language when we move back to Estonia. I found more than I could expect. Two fairy tale cd-s and some movies she likes. 20nok/pc. 

For myself I found a linen Noa Noa dress for 50 nok and a necklace for 20 nok and then the festdrakt for Ida, which I showed in last post.

When I wanted to pay we found out that my credit card is not working in this shop and I only had a bit of cash in my wallet. To little to pay for everything. And you know what -. I got a discount. “It’s enough with what you have” the lovely lady in the shop told me. I was so surprised of her kindness. 

Today when I was packing our suitcases I thought we have too many clothes and toyes. I decided to take them to this shop. As a thank you for yesterday. I didn’t do anything special, but the lady who was working there thanked my like i was some kind of a saint. And it was such a good feeling to start the day so positively. I promised to come back with more things later in September or October. I especially liked that one of the purposes of the shop is to help people in need in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Romania. Life in Estonia looks pink and bubbly on magazines, but the reality is somewhat different. Especially in small places. 

Anyway when you are in Moelv (it’s 20-25 km) from Lillehammer, between Hamar and Lillehammer, make sure to visit the shop on Storgata. It’s filled with kindness, warmth and good prices and nice things.
