Secondhand September is well underway, and we’re bringing you more great places to shop second hand. You may have seen our Circular Fashion Edit: 7 Places To Visit For Pre-Loved Luxury article (if not you should check it out!), here is another list featuring a wider price range so something for every budget.
Secondhand September is a 30-day campaign to curb everyone’s fast fashion and consumer habits! The aim of Secondhand September is to encourage EVERYONE to stop shopping or only buy secondhand clothing for the month of September! This can seriously reduce the amount of textile waste and overproduction that is common within the fashion industry. And if you’re reading this past September, no worries! This is a great thing to do anytime –or like a lot of us at No Kill Mag, ALL the time 🙂
This list includes some of our favorite websites for vintage and thrift shopping! From classic polo T-shirts to luxury bags, these shops have it all!
