London’s fashion scene is famous the world over, but it’s not just down to trailblazing designers, thrift stores have a big part to play too. Canny shoppers in the capital have long been leading the way for second-hand fashion, whether it’s getting new garbs at swap shops or rummaging through one of the city’s many car boot sales.
Shopping second-hand ticks all the boxes: more eco-friendly, reasonably priced, and there’s less chance of someone else turning up in the same outfit. The only drawback? It takes dedication and a keen eye to rummage through those rails. But don’t lose heart, we’ve saved you some time by rounding up the best thrift stores in London.
