Sustainability continues to be a growing concern throughout every industry.
From fuel and cars to food and fashion, consumers understand the environmental impact of the products they use and are looking for ways to decrease it.
WE'VE PUT TOGETHER A LIST OF 8 OF THE BEST SECOND HAND SPOTS TO GET YOUR THRIFTY FASHION ON!
Let’s kick it off with the pre-loved store with a purpose. Yes. They all have a purpose.
Help The Rural Child is a charity shop chain that forms part of the Goedgedacht Trust!
The people of Cape Town donate all items, and they carry not only great second hand fashion but also have books, household goods, and so much more.
So you and your home can look good while you do good.
This purpose-driven second hand clothes store was started when founder, Abigél Sheridan, felt the need to do something about the poor quality of early childhood education and poverty in South Africa.
What started as Exclusive Fashion Exchange parties in her home has now become Chic Mamas Do Care.
With a store in Wynberg, another in Hout Bay, and two more in Joburg and Durban, these ladies will have you looking designer chic for cheap with gorgeous second hand clothes.
They don't call it the windy city for nothing!
And depending on the time of year, you might want to visit this store before you do anything else. The coats range from new to second hand and vintage.
We’ve heard the men’s section has quite the gems, so don’t be shy to start there. But the store, which can be found on the popular Long Street, is also a great place to put together an entire ensemble.
You might need to do some digging as the store is packed with affordable second hand clothing, but it will all be worth it!
If it’s an all-around vintage experience you are looking for, SecondHand Rose is where you’ll find it. The second hand store, the oldest in Cape Town, has been running since 1971.
They carry items that go as far back as the early 1900s, while their newer pieces include international luxury brands like Fendi and Burberry and local greats like Country Road and G-Couture.
You can put together a stunner of an outfit with SecondHand Rose at Cavendish Close in Claremont.
Firstly, what a fun name! Secondly, what started as a vintage store in the trendy Long Street 45 years ago, has now grown into an online offering, still serving up second hand vintage realness!
The unique pieces are specially selected to cater to the thrifter with a bit of a dramatic flair.
Think of an era in fashion, and they’ve got a great item from it.
