Thrifty Shopping Made Fun!

This is me


Joshua Sloan (aka Secondhand Prepper)

I’ve been a life-long thrify shopper. Ever since the age of eight when I spent 50 cents on a small banana-style pocket knife. I was hooked. It was the best treasure I had ever found until then!

Little did I know that from the late 70’s until today I would carry the love and fascination with junk shops, antique stores and flea markets and auctions. After years of helping friends “shop by proxy”, I decided to see if I could share and expand that experience to an online audience. And thus was hatched, the SecondhandPrepper.com.
