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 secondhand or vintage store. From fenton bowls to Y2K Disney sweaters, here’s everything you need to know about shopping second hand in San Antonio.

The perks

  • 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.
