Where can you find a pair of silver sequined pants for 30 SEK? Or buy a hat from the 1950’s that becomes your main accessory on the beach this summer? The answer – probably in a small, and slightly moth-smelling, shop on a corner.
I’m talking about second hand shopping of course! For all you fashionable ladies and boys out there, that have been developing some mad shopping skills since your early teenage years – if you haven’t already mastered the art of vintage and second hand shopping – now is the time!
As you probably know, one of the biggest benefits of buying second hand is the saving of environmental resources. But if you are a self-centered individual (and most of us are), and your answer to the argument “you are contributing to a better world” is “it’s so insignificant so it doesn’t matter” – Here is a list of garments perfect for second hand shopping, that you might find more convincing, you selfish bastard! (just kidding)
So, poetically expressed – find your little street corner and spend less while giving more.
