Why buy second-hand?

Reasons to buy/swap second hand clothing from the good people at Posh Swaps!


  • Vintage clothes are a great way to get a really unique and individual look as the older the piece of the clothing, the less likely you are to see someone wearing the same thing.
  • You can reduce the impact of clothing manufacture on the environment by buying clothes that will last and recycling, swapping and selling your old clothes.
