Used clothes vs Brand New

August 27, 2010 10:29pm CST
Ever heard of For Sale Used Clothes from different countries? Here in our country there are a lot of shops selling used clothes. Most of the clothes are designer brand very costly when bought brand new. When I went to one of the shop I recognized that not all are used clothes. I found items with tag price and in original packaging. Wow if you have patience to search for good finds then you can go to this places. However, not all would like to buy used clothes. They prefer brand new which according to them to avoid skin disease, etc. What do you prefer used clothes or brand new?

Sometimes I buy used clothes. There's a place called Value Villiage here that a lot of girls shop at. The only thing I don't like is that you have to dig threw hundreds.. if not THOUSANDS of clothes to find something decent. Then sometimes if you find something decent it's too worn out, or the color is too faded for my liking. I shop there sometimes though. Mostly I like to buy new clothesm nto because of any kind of diseases or anything, I just like the colors of my clothes to look fresh, and on used clothes (depending how used they are) the color is faded so they don't look new anymore.

if your on a tight budget used clothes is a great way to save some money. I don't mind buying those used clothes as long as you wash them thoroughly before wearing them.

not too sound proud or boastful,but I have great skin which is insensitive to cloth.I feel blessed of it because I have great skin and I can buy clothes from secondhand shops because of it.I have a lot of secondhand clothes and they are lovely.I also found several items still with their tags on it.I prefer secondhand clothes because I hate seeing people with same items as mine.I don't like retail.

I would always choose new clothes over used ones. There is too many risks with used ones. I guess the clothes can be washed, but they will never feel like mine. I'd rather wear them in!
