My name is Jo-Anne Lauzer and I live in Vancouver, British Columbia. Originally from Noranda, Quebec I am a huge advocate for all things secondhand and hope to share some of what I have learned about this lifestyle. It is a quirky way to live but a good one.
I had initially started this process with a directory based Web site called Secondhandsavvy.com but I have decided to focus more on the writing…hence now in a blog format. I also used to run secondhand shopping tours, called Secondhand Safaris. As much as I loved doing the tours I have stopped doing them on a regular basis, but will conduct private tours upon request.
I am also a freelance writer and communications consultant. As a freelance writer I am now a regular contributor to The Upper Canadian (a national antiques magazine sold at Chapters/Indigo) and am currently the Frugal Living Examiner for Vancouver. Through my business Savvy Media, my goal as a communication’s consultant is to help entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations successfully communicate who they are and what they do to the people they want to reach.
