Daniel Troppy has dedicated his life to salvaging vintage clothing and furniture, dusting it off, and making it new again. WABE’s Kate Sweeney dropped in on his boutique in Atlanta’s Fourth Ward to discuss going green by going vintage.  

He welcomed her, how else?, with music on a vintage record player.

Daniel Troppy writes a blog at thethrifters.net, and runs Double Take consignment shop. 

In 2010, the United States produced more than 13 million tons of textile waste, according to the U.S. EPA.
