Our guide to

Second Hand Shopping

Go to almost any town or city and while retail’s suffering greatly, the second hand shops, vintage emporiums and boot sales are booming. More people are second hand shopping these days, and it’s not just about austerity. As well as keeping still-functional clothes, furnishings and homewares out of landfill, you can find interesting, unusual items, often for a fraction of the price you’d pay on the high street. Second hand shopping also fulfills a basic human need for hunter-gathering; rummaging through a charity shop’s bric-a-brac shelf can be so much more fun than unfolding sweaters in a generic boutique.
