Second hand shopping means different things to different people. You may find some of your clients to be prejudiced towards it because of the stigmas associated with previously owned clothing. Other clients may be completely unaware the option would even be useful to them. A select group of clients will likely know the allure of thrift and consignment stores, but may simply not know how to properly shop at them. In Second Hand Shopping, you'll learn the ins-and-outs of thrift shopping, consignment shopping, and vintage shopping. You'll also read through the dos and don'ts of thrift shopping, and can even pass the guide on to your clients.
