Lovers of second-hand clothing and accessories, rejoice! 2nd STREET has arrived. The boutique opened its doors just days ago in Old Pasadena, joining its two other local storefronts in Los Angeles and Costa Mesa. Yes, 2nd STREET has arrived in Southern California; however, its home resides in Japan. In fact, there are over 500 2nd STREETs in Japan, where over five million items are added monthly. Because of this, “inventory is always fresh with a wide variety of stylish items…that can’t be found just anywhere” ().
2nd STREET’s mission? Along with dressing you in one-of-a-kind pieces, it aims to reduce waste of unnecessary resources and landfill. A Win-win so-to-speak.
According to its website, “In the U.S. alone, over 15 million tons of clothing end up in landfills annually. But with your support, we’re able to continuously drive the sale of gently-used clothing and reduce waste around the world. Even items that fail to sell in our stores are resold or recycled.”
Interested in helping?
If you’re looking to add to their inventory, be sure to bring your ID to the store. Seasonal items are most coveted and will receive best prices compared to non-seasonal pieces. 2nd STREET purchases clothes, bags, shoes, and certain accessories for both men and women. Items it won’t purchase include monogrammed items, items in poor condition, wedding dresses, swimwear, babywear, certain jewelry, and stockings. (For a complete list, please visit their .)
Shop while they look over your pieces and receive cash on-the spot for items they want to buy. (Currently, unlike , 2nd STREET does not buy for in-store credit.)
If you’d like to purchase 2nd STREET’s inventory, you can shop either in-store or online. Much of its inventory includes designer pieces, which means prices are high; however, they’re still a fraction of the original prices. Take a look below:
