Earth Day is approaching on April 22nd and it’s the perfect time to reflect on our lifestyle habits and how they are affecting the environment. A simple practice to implement into your life is to shop secondhand, from thrift stores, flea markets, and community yard sales. Shopping from one of these markets is not only super fun, but also helps to reduce waste, while supporting the local community. We’ve rounded up a list of Philadelphia’s flea markets, antique shops, thrift stores and community yard sales.
