August 15, 2023 5 Fashion Treasures in Secondhand Shops

Secondhand shops are full of fashion treasures. Some of our favorite wardrobe staples were found secondhand!

With so many years of secondhand shopping under our belts, we have a system down for visiting stores. In fact, there are 5 fashion treasures we always check for, because they’re major finds.

1. Premium Denim

Great denim has plenty of life in it, so look for excellent-condition denim that still has years of wear ahead. Check brand labels to get a sense of the quality.

2. Vintage Handbags

Handbags are one of our favorite accessories, and a vintage one makes a look unique. We’re always drawn to vintage designer bags, but even non-designer bags can be high-quality and beautifully structured.

3. Leather Jackets

Leather is another material that can last a lifetime, so instead of buying a new leather piece, opt for used leather. Look for classic styles that will fit your wardrobe for many seasons to come.

4. Boots

Every closet should include boots, so we look for them in any secondhand store. They’re also so easy to take to your local shoe repair shop to get freshened up for fall.

5. Retro Prints

Retro prints are playful and eye-catching. This silk shirt with a postage stamp print is a perfect example!
