É tempo de reformar! Neste clima e mais vintage do que nunca, acontece em Londres as “jumble sales”, vendas de peças usadas, artigos de decoração, misturados a música, comidas artesanais, tipo vendas de gargem mesmo, aquelas americanas famosas. Tudo por uma boa causa – reciclar – e gerar um cash pra quem vende e estilo vintage para quem compra. Anote as dicas do roteiro!
