The taste for the past and the desire to differentiate oneself have become important levers for the purchase of second-hand clothing and accessories. Today, finding vintage pieces, accessories or clothes, is a real craze for the sole pleasure of hunting for the “collector” object. Women’s magazines are full of advice on how to hunt for and sell the best pieces or how to combine them. Instagram is getting into the act with accounts featuring fashion photos from the 1960s or 1980s. Among the most sought-after pieces, the 2.55 bags and the Timeless by Chanel, the Kelly by Hermès, and its silk squares. The “Trench Coats” of the British Burberry are also popular. Buying vintage is also an investment. Some buyers spot the models that will increase in value tomorrow, so they can resell them and invest in another piece. Apart from online stores, the best places to buy vintage clothing and accessories are at international vintage clothing fairs, thrift stores, and flea markets. For the latter two, don’t hesitate to get your hands dirty and go through racks of clothes with a fine-toothed comb to find rare items that can sometimes be resold at a high price.
