There is little doubt that in the past year or so, our buying habits have changed, becoming more deliberate and considered. We want to save money and reduce waste more than ever. The most common items bought used include home furniture, cars and books. With this in mind, we’ve devised a list of handy things you may not have considered to buy second hand.
Like many people who grew up in the 1970s and 80s, buying secondhand clothing is ingrained in my life experience. I have always had a diverse wardrobe that reflected both the choice to spend a little more on quality new clothing as well as pay less for a unique spattering of thrift shop gems (these are called Op Shops if you’re from Australia – literally short for “Opportunity”).
If you're anything like me, you'll relate to this. It's that special feeling you get on finding a perfect item of designer clothing at a second-hand shop for a majorly discounted price. There's nothing like it, it's so satisfying, isn't it?!
