Designer clothing has become firmly embedded in our consumer culture, we aspire towards our desires for the best to impress our peers, yet designer labels come with hefty price tags that often only the ‘Rah’s’ amongst us can afford.

So in this instances, why not swap your clothing. Pre loved shops are on the rise within the UK, with individuals taking in designer labels they no longer want and selling them, or trading them, to make room for the new ‘it’ item.

Yorkshire (my very own hometown) homes several pre loved stores selling designer items at a fraction of the cost. Pre Loved Boutique (Boroughbridge) and Ripon’s Revivals are amongst my favourite. Recently I managed to locate a pair of Vivienne Westwood Pirate Boots, in black, selling for £390 via Vivienne Westwood, resold by Pre Loved for a mere £55. Not to mention the Chloe Satchel oversized bag, RRP of £600, selling for £150. The store allows anyone to take in their designer items for them to sell on your behalf allowing you to both earn some cash, without doing any of the leg work, and purchase new bargains with your earnings!
