Certain items are the lifeblood of every store. These are called staples. They’re the things that sell consistently, no matter the time of year, what’s popular, or what the weather is outside. If you’re an ice cream shop, you’d better have chocolate and vanilla ice cream in stock. If you sell shoes, unless you sell one specific brand or a specialty type of shoe, then you should probably carry some Nikes. And, if you own a vintage clothing store, then there are some staples that you should certainly be carrying as well.

In today’s blog from American Recycled Clothing, we want to discuss the five staple items that every vintage clothing store should offer. If you don’t have them or run out of them, you could risk losing customers. Staples drive the majority of sales, and without them, you might not have a business.

Fast Fashion has changed the way consumers think of clothing. Disposable, mass-produced, and widely distributed, fast fashion has become the default for what the world thinks of when it comes to dressing themselves. Clothing is one of the few items we continuously use, no matter what. However, the consumer consciousness has led us to believe we need to keep up with the current trends in order to feel some sense of satisfaction, when in the case of clothing, less is more. 10% of fast fashion produced for retailers will actually sell, leaving the remaining 90% to be thrown out in landfills or burned. That number is startlingly high, especially considering the amount of resources needed for fast fashion.

We have established relationships with textile clothing mills to recycle their unwanted inventory and repurpose it to fit the trends of today.

In September of last year, American Recycled Clothing’s Ricky Kaplan had the opportunity to speak with Kamea Chayne of the Green Dream podcast to discuss fast fashion, sustainable clothing alternatives, and consumer consciousness. The podcast was featured on The North Face and REI’s websites as part of a collaboration series with National Geographic called REWIND NATURE. We wanted to take a moment, first, to acknowledge how cool it is that Ricky had the opportunity to be featured on these big-name sites. More importantly, though, we want to emphasize the points he had to make during the podcast, in order to encourage anyone reading to shop sustainably and consider their consumer consciousness.
