Years ago, buying secondhand items, especially branded bags was nothing to be proud of. If someone bought used bags, most would assume they simply could not afford new ones. In recent years, however, buying a secondhand or popularly called pre-loved good has become a popular trend in fashion. The newfound popularity of the used bags market has created an enormous opportunity for fashion shoppers to have a positive impact on themselves, the planet and society at large. And developed countries in Europe and America have embraced this trend openly, resulting in an increase in the number of pre-loved stores attracting consumers from many other channels.
