One thought on “Everything Old Can Be Made New Again

  1. This sounds like a very good place to live. You did a good job of illustrating your concepts. Why do you think the fashion/swapping charts went down and then went up again to about what they were at the beginning?
    I hope you return next year with another project. Nice work.
