Some days I feel like the ultimate consumer. My work and taping schedule has me flying on planes, eating out of to-go containers and burning up those mobile minutes on my laptop and BlackBerry. But, when it comes to shopping, I was green by the time I was 10 years old! That's when I went to my first flea market. Buying found objects means repurposing something that was already made years before, sometimes decades before. It strikes a nice balance between the new and used equation we should strive for in our lives.
