If you have been reading our website for some time. Then you probably already know that we are huge fans of environmentally (and wallet) friendly options when it comes to clothes, decor and even what we put onto our skin. Which should come as no surprise then that we are also huge fans of second hand shopping. With so many clothes and furniture dumped into landfills every year, it feels only right to sell your unwanted goods instead of just throwing them away. Its also a great way to make a bit of money. Below are just some places we like to go for our online shopping needs.
- eBay: Tried and tested ebay is the place to go for everything you may need. Looking for a vintage silk scarf? eBay probably has it. Even some barely worn Nike trainers are up for grabs on this go to shopping site for buyers and sellers.
- Gumtree: Gumtree is the eBay equivalent for South Africans. Be ware of scammers however and make sure to pay cash on delivery so you get what you actually want.
- Vestiaire Collective: This global platform is THE secret of fashion insiders around the world. Not only is this site full of beautiful vintage finds. But also newer and more stylish clothing options.
- 1st Dibs: If there was a second hand clothes olympics then 1st Dibs would win first place. This high end site that sells everything from designer (second hand) couches to limited edition Hermes hand bags. 1st Dibs is a treasure trove for true collectors and fashion enthusiasts.
