Let's Talk | Second hand clothes

by - октобар 30, 2017

So hello my darling! Welcome to my blog!
Among all these reviews and wishlists, I'm glad to write some random post. Today we're launching my rubric 'Let's talk' and talking about one very interesting and attractive topic. Before we start, I want to apologize to my Balkan people, and ask them to translate this text into their own language. I have to write in English, because it's so easy for me to get in touch with my readers, although I know there are haters who visit my blog every day, and they spit on me here. Thank you haters, for all views! Love you!
Before all I want ask you something! Did you ever buy something 'secon hand'? Be real.

Second Hand wares...
The "second hand" goods are actually used goods which you can find today almost everywhere. Namely, those are things that someone bought, maybe even used, but decided to pass it on. In my country (Serbia), this is't the case, however, people wash them clothes, iron (press) them and left in special containers, instead of throwing it into waste. It's very humane, because the poor people can use that outfit. In time, a business developed in the world, and people are collecting and then reselling it.  So  that's way how people created ''second hand'' shops

Sometimes people collect things they do not want to wear, and resell them, which is very good. In this way, the environment is protected. It's also recycling. However, people often have prejudices about these things. Is this a mistake? Yeah. It's not a shame to wear second hand clothes. You bought it from someone, you did't steal it, why is it then embarrassing you to say that your clothes are used?


That's why I conducted the survey.
My city isn't too big, but there are so many 'second-hand' shops. That's why I decided to talk to the owners of these shops. Yeah, I've really done that. The answer I received was very surprising.
Namely, workers and owners claim that these shops are visited primarily by educated people. They say that their clients are mostly doctors, lawyers, professors, athletes, artist, students, journalists... Also they say that people who have money are mainly bought here. The poor don't enter. Educated people understand the brands, and they know what's the original clothes. That's why they enjoy buying marked items at low prices.

But that's true! At very low prices, you can find a branded items, often with labels. These are things that a wealthy people bought a long time ago and didn't wear, and decided to forward it. there are always exceptions when things are torn and ragged, but they are hard to find. Most often, these are worn but preserved things. It's the same as when you borrow a suit from a friend. You buy these things, take it home, wash, press, and they are like new. But what about prejudice ''Who knows who worn it before me?''? It's the same as you trying clothes in the store. Who knows who tried it before you? 


Well, to summarize! It's not shame to wear 'second hand' clothes. It's not shame to buy it! Please, forget all prejudice, please! Focus on enjoying your clothes, not what will anyone say! Visit these stores, buy if you like something, and sell your own surplus wardrobe (or donate) because someone needs more than you.
Write me in comment your opinion about this theme. Love you all. Bye!

    Ja sam baš prije koji tjedan donirala odjeću u second hand shop u blizini mene, planirala sam prvo crvenom krizu ili sličnim udruženjima,ali nažalost nisam uspjela naći pa je preostao second hand shop.

  5. Oduševljena sam postom draga Sandra. Ja sam par puta prosledila devojčici iz komšiluka brdo stvari iz razloga što su mi bile tesne a obučene su par puta. Neke su čak imale i etiketu. A moja sestra mi često prosledi garderobicu za decu od ćerkice, i sve bude novo kao da nije ni nošeno. Takodje dok smo bile male nasledjivala je garderobu od mene. Da, tako sam i ja čula da samo siromašni zaobilaze radnje polovnih stvari. Tako da, što se mene tiče ovaj post mi je baš super. Uzivala sam čitajući.

  11. I actually love thrift shopping, Sandra, and I love receiving hand-me-down clothes. I don't know why but I just like used stuff. hahaha. Except for shoes, socks, and undies of course. But I really enjoy thrift shopping and majority of the clothes in my closet are second-hand. I love second-hand books too! Aside from the mysterious stories behind each second hand item, I like the fact that even on this small act of mine, I help the environment. :)

  13. In Kolkata, India there is a big second hand market in the heart of the city. It opens at midnight, from 12.00 AM to 5.00 AM. There is no shame to purchase a good quality second hand garment, if you can not effort expensive branded one.

  19. Second hand clothes are pretty interesting, but there's some prejudice here in São Paulo and people prefer going to the mal to buy new ones. Here, there's the wrong idea that only very poor people wear second hand clothes, but I disagree. There are many interesting pieces of clothing for good prices and quality.

  25. Amei o seu post, as pessoas têm preconceito e a maioria são os pobres realmente, por achar inferior usar roupas que já foram usadas, mas na verdade não faz vergonha nenhuma. As peças foram higienizadas e colocam pra serem vendidas porque estão em bom estado e a preço baixo. Aqui onde moro tem bastante!

  30. Odličan post! Moje mišljenje je da nemam ništa protiv polovne robe. Vrlo rado poklanjam sve sto necu vise nositi, a znam da će neko uzivati u tim stvarima. Isto tako i ja uzmem nešto što mi se pokloni. Par puta sam naletela na extra stvari u second hand radnji, i ništa im ne fali. Tako da svako ima svoj izbor i tu ne treba raspravljati. :*

  31. Ti si mene doslovno oduševila ovim postom, u svakom mogućem i nemogućem smislu te reči! Tolika humanost, realnost i iskrenost su me ostavili bez teksta.
    Nemam ništa, bukvalno ništa protiv second hand prodavnica. Iskrena da budem, nisam do sada kupovala u njima, međutim, što da ne? Za sve postoji prvi put. Obećavam sebi da ću jednom otići do seknd henda, ako ništa drugo, da doniram svoju staru odeću. Do sam sam je nosila u H&M za onaj reciklažni program, ali opet smatram da je mnogo bolje dati odeću nekome kome stvarno treba (jer će neko u lošijoj materijalnoj situaciji to posle kupiti za 100- 200 din.), nego donirati to za novu brendiranu, skupu odeću. A malo si me začudila onim delom posta gde si napisala da advokati, lekari, studenti i otsali kupuju u ovim radnjama, a siromašni ljudi ne, jer znam da u jednom seknd hendu pored kog baš često prolazim viđam ljude u prilično lošoj materijalnoj situaciji. Mada opet, zavisi... Da ne dužim, mnogo mi se dopada na koji način si prišla ovoj temi i ceo post kao celina mi nekako deluje... lepo? Malo je reći. Svaka čast na ovome!

  50. Well I am romanian and when I lived i Romania I often saw this things happen, I too bought some second hand clothes. Now I live in Italy for more than 10 years and I have to say that I haven't seen similar stores yet. There are places where one can leave clothes that doesn't use any more and those things are sent to centers that help poor people and I find this a very good and useful idea.

  62. Izvrstan post, draga Sandra. Jako dobro objašnjeno i do detalja. Da budem iskrena mene malo ljuti kada čujem da neko komentariše kako nikada ne bih kupovao po ovakvim radnjama. Pa nemaju svi tu privilegiju da mogu sebi priuštiti novu odjeću. Pored toga i ta odjeća koja se nudi ili prodaje u takvim radnjama nije otrovana. Ali hajde, bitno da je "nivo" zavladao svijetom i da je iz poniženja reći da kupuješ u trgovini polovne robe. Sve pohvale, još jednom, za ovaj post ^_^
