Exploring sustainable shopping in Alamance County

Sustainable fashion has made its way into stores in recent years. This sort of fashion can consist of clothing made with environmentally friendly materials such as organic cotton,  repurposed materials and any other sort of clothing made to last long.

Brace yourself for the human-free shopping revolution

The Daily Telegraph recently reviewed Boutiques by Lucien Boucher, a volume of lithographs of Parisian shopfronts published in 1925 and reissued by The Mainstone Press. It records a world poised at a moment of change, as reflected in its high street shopfronts. A grisly ensemble of prosthetic limbs in the Bandagiste’s window recalls the enduring devastation of the First World War, while a jaunty constellation of gramophone horns looks forward to the jazz age.
