The benefits of this buying strategy include being able to provide a much more diverse assortment of products from our favourite markets, bringing in very small quantities per style, but a greater variety of styles. This means that everything you see is truly unique, and not produced en masse. This also means that our rapidly changing assortments creates that “treasure hunt” shopping experience every time you visit online or in store.
