Ready to update your wardrobe + elevate your personal style? Instead of shopping retail in a big, cavernous mall, opt to spend time (and coin) at a second-hand or vintage store. From fenton bowls to Y2K Disney sweaters, here’s everything you need to know about shopping second hand in San Antonio.
- First, it’s eco-friendly — meaning you are lengthening the “life” of an article of clothing.
- Second, there are higher chances of finding unique pieces that’ll help you stand out from your peers.
- Third, you’d be directly supporting local businesses.
