Second hand tour in Wrocław

City of shopping centres

Wrocław is a city of shopping centers, but why go to the easy way? I know a better way to shop, demanding more creativity – second hand.

Second hand is a style of being giving new life a dress after grandma releases creativity. The times in which we live are individualism related to the music we listen to or the ideology we proclaim. The clothing store in the “Magnolia Park” or “Wroclaw” gallery gives us ready-made stylizations, clothing sets that limits our creativity. Lumpeks is a fun style, with a small financial outlay. His success is related to the fact that the buyer spends a lot of time to find something that suits his style, is of a specific brand, has the right quality and is not damaged. When a product meets these requirements, it becomes our treasure, which we are happy to boast about friends.

“I remember my anger when I came to one shop with used clothing, where I found polo identical, to the one from the gallery. The worst fact in this situation was that for the shirt I bought at Magnolia Park with the price of 329 zlotys for that which was worn once I paid PLN 15. On such examples of life, you can radically change your habits. “- says Marcin.

Eco alternative

The clothing store is a great alternative for people affected by the disease of the 21st century – shopaholism. Each of them has a different promotion for a particular day. I know from experience that “lumpeks” hides many pearls, and Jessica Mercedes herself would be quartered for some vintage handbags. Nowadays, eco, where most people realize that we are throwing away a lot of things, many of them give them a new life. Not only is it much cheaper, but it also does not create a large garbage dumb from our world.

Livia Firth speaks for one of the website, saying that the clothing industry has become one of the largest sources of waste because one consumes the most. It became the cause of dramatic working conditions of adults and, what is worse, children, as well as the suffering of animals. This fact is increased by the poverty of the Third World countries in which workers are exploited, secondly animal harm is another reason and an equally important pollution of the environment, which is constantly changing by the constant interference of people. Consumer awareness is growing in Poland, paving the way for ecological clothing that respects the Fair Trade environment. This awareness is still low, because clothes made of renewable materials are much more expensive. A good alternative for those who can not afford eco clothing is second hand.
