Second-handed and second-handing

There’s a big second-hand market close to where my family lives in Gothenburg, and whenever I’m here I like to visit it. It was one of the things I did yesterday.

The ladies who work there do it for free, and all the profits go to good causes. They also run a café that serves breakfast on odd china and they make the best carrot cake I’ve ever had.
