That’s So Retro

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”… or so the saying goes and to be completely honest, that’s completely true.

What you may have once considered too old for your new, fashionable way of living may be another person’s wondrous idea of a great retro buy! These days, with our parent’s and grandparent’s fashionable clothing styles making a comeback it really is all about those swings and round-a-bouts when it comes to buying and selling your unwanted items.

 

Clothes

Clothes have been the forefront in style and design for generations, they’ve shaped the way we perceive ourselves and the people around us, personifying beauty in its various swinging forms around the world.

Women tend to be the ultimate clothes buyers, the stereotypical shoppers, routing through clothes racks and the worlds online store rooms for the best value of clothing for their money. Yet men have been known to adore the retro fashions. Patterned blouses, a stunning range of jeans and skirts, dresses and heavy fur and suede coats have all brought on a new wave of in-demand styles you can be sure somebody will want to get their hands on!
