Why Buy Pre-Loved Clothing

There are so many benefits to buying pre-loved clothing.

If you explore some of the vintage or pre-loved clothing stores you can find some wonderful, exciting bargains at a fraction of the price that the brand new item would be. Quite often clothing is donated which is brand new or hardly worn at all. Some items still have the original price tag on when it is donated. Many items may have been donated simply because the previous owner changed their mind or decided they did not suit that garment because of preference, lifestyle, colouring, size or style personality.
