When we want to buy new garments it´s absolutely clear that there are mostly two places we go to: Either we pay a visit to our favorite store or we go online and browse through the various online shops. Either way, we are being offered hundreds and thousands of different clothes, and they all have something in common: They are brand-new.
This might sound so obvious that it´s not even worth mentioning, but think about it for a little while. To be more precise, think about the differences in price between e.g. a shirt that is brand-new and one from a second-hand store or used from ebay. It´s a striking difference to say the least. That´s not to say that one should only buy used clothes from now on, but it definitely is an option to keep in mind.
Used, not dirty
Some people still do have their prejudices against used clothes and think they are dirty and tattered. While this can be true for some of them, most clothes that people are willing to sell either on ebay, flea markets, garage sales or in second-hand stores are still in very good condition. A very high percentage of them aren´t even old, but were a mispurchase and therefore only worn one or two times.
You can literally find every possible kind of clothing in the above-mentioned places , but it´s mainly a great opportunity to get your hands on cheap vintage clothes. These are en vogue again, especially when combined with modern clothes to create an absolutely unique style.
As occasions to buy used clothes do arise spontaneously most often “one just stumbles across a second-hand store” it´s a good idea to make use of mobile payment since you will probably not always have the exact amount of money with you. Instead of having to look out for a bank and withdraw some money there, you can just make your payment via your mobile. This way, you will always be ready to take the opportunity to add a great new piece of clothing to your wardrobe as soon as you glimpse it!
