Where To Shop for SecondHand Workwear
I look for items that are high quality and durable when I buy, well, anything. Those qualities don’t come cheap when it comes to consumer products, but especially when you’re talking about clothing. That’s why I love to shop secondhand for my wardrobe. It allows me to buy items for a fraction of the original price, and I can shop for brands that I would otherwise consider out of my price range. Are you new to thrifting? Check out the places I listed below to get started.
ThredUp is an online consignment store that has a huge selection of clothes in excellent condition. I purchase a lot of tops and jeans from here. They are up front about the condition of the clothing, and they are very picky about what they accept. ThredUp also have an generous return process that makes shopping online for secondhand clothes super easy.
Ebay has been around since the ’90s. It’s a popular site to buy and sell just about anything, and a great place to look for pre-loved clothes. I personally use it to sell some of my thrifting finds, including a lot of really great work pieces. Click HERE to check out my shop.
Local Thrift Shops
If you like to hunt for a bargain in person, check out your local thrift shops. A lot of them support local charities, so you’ll be helping out your community while you find great deals. You can search for thrift shops in your area at The Thrift Shopper’s website.
According to ThredUp’s website, “If everyone in the US bought just one item used instead of new in 2019, it would save nearly 6 billion lbs of carbon emissions – the equivalent of taking over half a million cars off the road for an entire year.”
