Why Shop Secondhand

Why Shop Secondhand

Shopping for clothes can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it can also be expensive. One way to save money while still looking great is to shop secondhand. Secondhand clothing offers an affordable and eco-friendly alternative to buying new items. In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of secondhand clothing, tips for finding great pieces, and how to make sure you get the most out of your secondhand shopping experience.

Shopping for secondhand clothing has many benefits. It can be significantly cheaper than buying new items, which allows you to save money. It can also reduce your environmental impact. By reusing or repurposing clothing, you're creating less waste and conserving resources. When you buy pre-loved fashion, you're also giving new life to items that would otherwise be thrown away.

Make sure you know your size when shopping secondhand. Different brands and styles can fit differently, so it's important to know your measurements before you purchase. If you're shopping online at Poetry & Pearl, be sure to check the FAQs section to see how we measure garments to ensure a proper fit.

It's also important to know your style, or at least have an idea of what you're looking for. Maybe you're up for trying something new! Perhaps a statement piece or just good quality wardrobe staples. Keep a list of pieces you're on the hunt for. We have a search feature on our website. You can also search by garment type, your size or one of our "imaginary muse" collections. You may be inspired by Margot or Charlotte.

Shopping secondhand can be an affordable and eco-friendly way to update your wardrobe. With a little bit of research and some patience, you can find great secondhand clothing at a fraction of the cost of buying new.

Check the Poetry & Pearl website often as new collections are curated and dropped.  You may just find your favorite piece de resistance!
