I love second hand clothing. I love to have a cup of tea and trawl through the listings looking for the perfect item at a bargain price too.
You can get really good deals on pre-loved clothing . New, nearly new or good quality second hand. Whats not to like. Some people don't like the idea of wearing something that someone else has worn. But when you think about it, most clothing you try or buy in shops has been tried on my many many people before you actually hand over your money for it. Of course there is also the fact that you pay over and above for brand new items. The retailers make a huge mark up on items that you will wear for a couple of months and then discard or put to the back of your wardrobe. Its environmentally good too ( if that's your thing). I do love a good rummage through a second hand shop too but in my rural area there are not that many good ones
You can find high end designer items and medium end items ...whatever style you like and you can guarantee that you will look different. You will have your own look that is unique to you . You can be your authentic self. I love quirky and love dressing a bit different.
I find pinterest great for sourcing things I love then putting them together on a board as an outfit and then seeing if I can find the items on ebay or pre-loved. Great way to spend a hour (or three)!!
Do you like buying and wearing pre-loved clothing?
