Hello! Have you ever bought something in a second hand shop? If yes, what was your best purchase? I have discovered a very nice second hand shop not far from my home and the best is that nobody knows about it, at least none of my friends....it's my little secret...because there last time I found some really nice things and planning to go there again this Saturday, I hope I will get something!!! :) Thank for sharing your experience with me!!!!

I bought several designer items in a secondhand shop.I went to this secondhand shop last Saturday with some friends.let me tell you,finding great finds in a secondhand shop is very addicting.I got a lot of stuff worth my money.I got a Marc Jacobs trench coat,a BCBG and Mango dress,and a Zara top.aside from that,from my previous shopping,I got a Marc Jacobs skirt and D&G dress.I thought I could never afford designer items,but I have some now.cheers to secondhand shopping!

I think I like to go to second hand shops because as well I couldn't afford any designer outlet unless I do some savings for a longer time. But to my mind it is quite silly to save maybe one year till I could buy a LV bag for example but at that time I even cannot afford to buy a brad maybe - it's a little bit exaggeration but anyway -true!!! Good luck in shopping!!!

Hello Miss Sweety. Oh, ok, good to keep the secret ! LOL ! Any way, I do go to second hand shops once in a while, to see what things are available. One thing that I bought and have been very happy about is a printer. Very cheap, and have been using it for over a year now, and working very well too. Have a nice day !

Hi! I went to that shop again last Saturday and it looks that it is closed for ever...lights were off, doors closed and sigh was off... what a pity!

i love shopping at thrift stores and go there as often as i can. i am particularily partial to vintage and antique stuff which you can often find at thrift stores for not that much money. it is also a good place to find new stuff sometimes!

I usually do not go to the second hand shops. Not because, I consider it cheap, but I hate to buy things which are used by other for sentimental reasons. Of course I do buy second hand books and magazines.Apart from this, I avoid everything.

I got a leather coat that had hardly been worn for £4.50 (GBP)It didnt have a mark on it and the spare buttons were still in the little bag fixed to the inside of the coat. I've also been buying videos for just 10pence each. I watch them, pass them on to my mumto watch and then we take them back to the charity shop.
