  • Yes. My kids get a bigger variety and get a bigger wardrobe by having 2nd hand clothes. My kids get new too, and they're actually getting more new lately than 2nd hand (2nd hand prices going up, new prices going down with sales), but we still find some gems in 2nd hand stores.

  • Yes I do. Especially for the kids. They grow out of clothes too fast to pay retail for anything but special items.

  • I have once or twice but truthfully I have bought many many things cheaper (for my kids especially) that have been brand new so for me why bother

  • Oh, yes, I do too. I've been losing weight and don't want to wear my good clothes for work so I buy what 2nd hand stuff I can find.

  • Most of what my kids wear was either used or on sale. I belong to the local mothers of twins club and sell all our outgrown stuff an their semi-annual sales. There's one on Saturday and I need to finish tagging my stuff.
