I went to a clothes swap last month, and at the end of the night, as we were cleaning up, someone was about to throw away this broken belt, made of braided suede that was coming unraveled at one end. I quickly snatched it up and saved it from a gruesome death. I knew just what to do with it!
Not bad for something that would've ended up in a landfill!
