Dear Selena, I am so inspired with your magazine and always look forward to the next issue. I just wanted to thank you for your article on Tim Willcocks and his “one shot photography project”. In this fast-paced world, I am grateful to know that there is someone that has their own version of the truth, and poetically make it their own. Congratulations to Tim as well for releasing a book and I look forward to having my own copy next to my Junkies magazines. With love!

how to make the most of your op shopping expeditions

Check before you buy While there are plenty of wonderful clothing items to be found, not all of them have been donated in pristine condition. Faults needn’t be a problem if you can mend a tear, remove a stain, or refashion the piece. Tip: Check buttons, zippers and seams and for tears and stains. Know your own style Quality fashion labels can be some of the best op shopping investments you’ll ever make. Designer pieces are usually well made with good quality fabric. But don’t get carried away with the latest fashion style – just because something is in fashion doesn’t mean it’s stylish or will suit you. Tip: Keep your favourite labels in mind and check the styling to make sure it suits you. It takes time to find a bargain Stamina separates those who leave…

urban reusables

“The idea for Urban Reusables simply came about one morning driving my child to school”, she tells us. “Living in an area where hard rubbish collections are booked as needed by households, I was always seeing piles of discarded wooden furniture.” Melissa started with an ordinary pine chest that she painted and upholstered with fabric from a jacket bought in India that she couldn’t bear to throw away. “Let’s face it. We are predominately a throwaway society”, Melissa tells us. “Many usable items are discarded in favour of the new. Our love of pursuing perfection and minimalistic design within our homes is driving us and future generations to buy more rather than rework, restyle and reuse”. She adds, “So many people are discarding brown wooden furniture, not just 20 to 40 years…

making the e-connection

Many of these items contain valuable materials such as gold, silver, copper and rare earths. But they can also contain hazardous material as well. These include broken glass, sharp metal, hazardous chemicals, heavy metals and mercury vapour in batteries. There are also recyclable materials such as plastic, glass and metal. At the end of their useful lives, all of these items are electronic waste or ‘e-waste’. E-waste is equipment powered by a connection to an electrical outlet or by batteries (eg, televisions, computers, printers and mobile phones) that have been discarded as waste without the intention of reuse. E-waste must be separated from the processing and disposal of general waste, as it can contain both hazardous and valuable materials that can be safely disposed of through treatment or recovered for reuse. E-waste…
