I got the bargain of the year this week in the form of a huge bag full of 2nd hand children’s clothes for Lowenna and I only payed £10 for the lot. The clothes were in immaculate condition and were all good makes such as Next, H&M and M&S. I found them on a local Facebook selling site.
Today I thought I would share with you my top 5 places to source 2nd hand children’s clothes.
I have found some amazing bits from charity shops in the past and It’s very rare that I go into one without coming out with something, much to the annoyance of the other half.
You will often find people selling a bulk load of children’s clothes on Ebay and they normally go for a cheap price because they are ‘pick up only’ which limits the amount of people that will bid on them.
Facebook Selling Pages
This is where I found all of the lovely clothes above. There are loads of different selling pages on Facebook you just need to search for one in your area.
Car Boot Sales
If you are after some real bargains then car boot sales are your best bet. I have often brought an item of clothing for as little as 20p and if you approach people towards packing up time they are really keen to get rid of stuff so you might manage to get it even cheaper!
Pre-Loved Clothes Stores
I have found quite a few of these since we have moved down to Devon. There is one that is particularly good in a town nearby called Treacle Corner. All of there clothes are marked at about a third of the original high street price and they stock lots of great designer labels.
Last time I was there I brought a gorgeous girls Joules jumper that cost me £6.00 and it looked brand new! Keep your eye out in your local area for shops like this.
Where do you source your 2nd hand clothes from or do you always buy new?
