Right now, there is a situation in Japan in which clothes are not selling very well. In fact, it has been going on since before the global pandemic.
Today, unfortunately, more and more people are avoiding buying in stores, instead, people are more likely to go shopping on the internet.
On the other hand, there is a growing phenomenon among the younger generation who enjoys buying used clothes instead of new ones. They are looking for cheap clothes that have rare designs.
So, after this terrible global situation is over, let me share with you some ways you can enjoy shopping for eco-friendly fashion when you come to Japan.
Go to a famous second hand clothing store chain in Japan.
In Japan, there are several large second-hand clothing chains throughout the country. These days, they not only sell clothes, but they may also sell electronics.
They don’t just buy anything, but they screen the clothes very carefully. This is why Japanese used clothes are in very good condition, so you can shop with confidence.
To be honest, they will probably buy your clothes at a very low price, but there are some brands that they will buy at a higher price, so you may be able to get a good deal.
Recommended Sales Apps
If you want to make some quick money by selling clothes, you should actually go to a thrift store and sell your clothes instead of using a sales app. However, they charge very low prices for the clothes.
You will not make the money you expect from selling clothes there.
In my experience, I had 10 pieces of clothing screened by them, and they said they would only buy one piece. Then I sold them on a sales app, it took a while, but I was able to sell them all. What a surprise!
So if you don’t need the money right away, I would recommend using a sales app. The transaction may take a while, but you will definitely make more money using it.
Koenji’s vintage clothes: The hidden gem in the city of Tokyo
“Koenji in Tokyo is a must-visit town for anyone who loves clothes in Japan. When I say vintage clothing stores, I mainly mean brand-name vintage clothing. In this connection, there are many small clothing stores in Koenji that sell vintage European and American clothing. The stores are small and can be quite uncomfortable, but they exude style and you’ll be able to feel their fashion sense.
The items they sell are very rare, which can be very expensive. At the very least, you will need about 30,000 yen to buy them.
As for the clothing store owners, I’m not quite sure about their goals and intentions, but I think this can be interpreted as an eco-friendly and sustainable fashion business, since they are selling clothes that were made before we were born, not new clothes.
In addition to enjoying the clothes, you will also be able to enjoy the local atmosphere of this city.
What do you think?
Interest in sustainable fashion is growing in Japan as well, and I hope it will lead to less mass production and less mass disposal, not only of used clothes, but also of food and other industries.”
So, let me know what you think about this. I appreciate you taking the time out to read this blog.
