We all agree on the point that it is a bad thing for the environment to buy new things all the time. Why not try the second hand market? Because the offered things are already worn? Because you will miss the thrill of the consumption? No. I found myself having fun scrolling trough the never ending feed of Kleiderkreisel.de (equivalent to vinted.com). You can give in the settings of your account that you search for unworn things with original price tag, how much you are ready to spend… etc. To prove that one can find nice things on the second hand market, I made a selection of 3 outfits from the online platform Kleiderkreisel, with the links to the seller. Of course, there is only one sample of these items, so it is more inspiration than a shopping list!
The + of second hand:
- less expansive and possibility to bargain
- unique sample
- access to items that are not on the “new” market anymore
- every day are different items offered
The – of second hand:
- cannot try things on before buy
- cannot return after purchase.
BUT: if you already know your size in the corresponding brand, no problem!
AND: the best is, you can make money by selling your own stuff…
I could post selections from the second hand platform KK on a regular basis… give me your opinion in the comments of this article!
