I had planned to write a post about buying second hand, but Eva at Style Me Minimimal wrote a great guide a few months ago, so I just decided to reblog her post. Please visit her blog and give her posts some love :)
I’ll still write a post about what I do and what I don’t buy second hand yet on another day!
I’ve been avoiding jeans shopping for months. Thankfully patience and persistence paid off, and now I have two pairs of jeans to replace my ripped ones and my wide-leg ones (they didn’t fit well).
I bought these at a consignment store. For shopping some items consignment is easier than thrift because the selection is smaller (less overwhelm) and the quality is better.
Either way, remember: Patience and Persistence.
Successful second-hand shopping can take a lot of repeat browsing. Yet most minimalists don’t consider shopping recreational, so this may seem counterintuitive. Still – sometimes you need to replace worn items or freshen your look, and buying second-hand is the most responsible way to do so.
