In Defense of Inefficient “Hobby-Hustles”

I refer to selling the vintage proceeds of my thrift-store explorations(on Etsy and Ebay) as a “lightly monetized hobby” and it’s kind of like this. It’s not going to make me rich, but it offsets some of the cost(both financial and time) of trawling thrift stores in search of goodies. 
I tend to think it has a greater benefit in that it gets things that might not find their buyer in Northeast Ohio exposed to a wider range of potential owners, thus hopefully reducing the number of things that go to landfills. I’m not sure how much of a difference it really makes, though.
