Do you ever buy second hand clothes, and if so, what types of clothes do you buy?
If you have a favorite item of second hand clothing, what is it?
I buy almost all of my clothes second hand. I am of average size so it is easy to find things at thrift stores and garage sales. I rarely ever buy anything new, except electronics. I buy suits, ties shirts, coats, pants, almost exclusively used. Things I will not buy used are underclothes including socks. I dont buy shoes used either. I am quite happy with this arrangement.
I love to shop at consignment shops for a good bargain. We have a couple of Goodwill boutiques here with donated designer clothing and they are always crowded with shoppers. I have found some really nice items through the years and I enjoy the hunt.
I cant really recollect the last time I bought second hand clothes for myself. Though some members of my family still do especially if it is fascinating.
I buy things at yard sales all the time. When my daughter was a baby, we found some yard sales that were selling designer clothes. She wore designer clothes that we sure could not afford new. We both love to shop at yard sales and thrift shops and do so frequently. We have gotten pants, skirts, blouses, shirts and coats. I bought a coat last fall which still had the tags on it. It is a white parka with the furry trim around the hood. It is twice as thick as the ones we find in the store so it obviously came from a colder area. I only paid $5 for it. How much did you pay for your new winter coat?
I only buy second hand clothes I love to shop thrift stores because you get a better deal. I have my own style and I love the uniqe peaces I find. I aslo like to donate old clothes and items I no longer use. I find thrift store shopping alot more fun its a much more comftorble experince than shoping it expsinve stores its aslo more convent than the mall.
I like going to vintage store and buying shoes, dresses and belt buckles.
I buy second hand clothes all the time- and I think it is so nice to get some new clothes for 5 or 6 dollars.My two girls love it too- they are 5 and 10.
Second hand clothes are part of the "green" trend! There are a variety of ways to purchase clothes, not only for yourself but for your children. I know that people may feel strange sometimes buying something that isn't new, but it isn't much different than a hand me down from a friend. Most places that offer second hand clothes, have certain standards for accepting the clothes and inspect everything they take in.
For myself, I love to look for something vintage, designer or unique. Second hand maternity clothes are a great way to boost your wardrobe without breaking the bank too! There are also lots of cool accessories you can find at shops as well - like handbags and costume jewels.
For my family, I have found some almost new pieces that have worked great. Kids outgrow their clothing so fast that the clothing may have only been worn a handful of times. Items that are normally more costly, like coats, sweaters or dresses, can be found at a fraction of the price. Some places even have items that still have the tags!
To start, I would suggest you find a store and visit it. Once you see the items you may then feel more comfortable expanding to some of the online options.
I had never bough the second hand cloths. Even I buy work wear from the reputed shop like workline safety Ltd. Here I get the high quality cloths in much affordable cost.

What is the best second hand shop or thrift store in your area?I live in Illinois. I know a lot of attention is given to Goodwill and Salvation Army stores and I'm happy to support them, but they have really gotten more expensive. There are a couple of "mom and pop" thrift stores...
