I'm my case i absolutely looooove second hand stores. Almost all my clothes comes from second hand stores.

But i know that there are people who hate them, maybe because don't want to use something that people has already weared.

Do do you shop in second hand stores?

Why not to shop the second hands? We can participate on saving materials as we can save earth <3
Second hands will look good too if we know how to match it!

I am not a wasteful person so 2nd hand stores/thrift/consignment stores are the way to go.
I pride myself of incredible fashion at a fraction of the price and would love to pursue a career in fashion consulting/styling but on a dime. I would suggest 2nd hand stores to anyone wealthy or not because some of the best statement pieces can be found. Utilize thrift stores, you never know what you can find.

I feel like people who are against 2nd hand stores arent fashion forward, wealthy snooty girls wasting their money on trendy crap for 90 bucks a pop. As for people who are concerned about the person who last wore the garment...Ever hear of a washer machine, bleach, detergent etc etc? Or dont buy that specific garment due to it being soiled.

Love them! I just can't shop at the Salvation Army anymore; I've read an article that some of the money they rake in goes to anti-gay operations and stuff, and...well, if I want to marry my (female) fiancée, I can't support a cause that's trying to take my rights away. :(

I love second stores. I've gotten an Oscar de la Renta cardigan, sperrys, jackets, sweaters. I always wash or steam the items before I wear them out. Sometime I may change the buttons or something. But, I love them and I always find something awesome.

I know right? Even when you see people standing outside stores with the bell and red bucket around Christmas time, the money they collect partially goes to anti-gay ops. It's terrible. I can't even buy Silk brand soy milk anymore, for the same exact reason! :(

love them, most high street stores only have things that are "hot" or "in" at the time, and the choices are fairly limited, and the designer labels have a heavy price tag i like most people cannot afford so off to opshops!!

Really like them!It depends what shops you look in really.Some of the second hand stores have more little treasures in them than others,depending on where they are located,if you see what I mean?!!We have a little town down the road that has mostly an older population,and the stores there tend to have more 50s/60s/70s stuff,and full of little trinkits and things.Where the ones in town have newer stuff :) X
