Tell us a bit about your story. How did you arrive where you are today?
I used to be a regular customer, and was inspired by what Crave was doing. Now I'm part of the movement, operating the Toy Box out of Crave. We're trying to give awareness to the neighbourhood about sustainability - our toys are second hand and vintage and in top knick. This doesn't have to be such a throwaway society. Come see our collection!
