Somewhere between Piata Romana and Piata Victoriei you can find ReSale Shop, a small vintage clothing store that is trying to save the planet by finding new owners for some really cool vintage items. The clothes are sold by the kilo and they sometimes come from famous people or designers, but they also became popular thanks to some original outfits worn by the contestants of a fashion-themed TV show well-known in Bucharest. The friendly atmosphere, stylish clothes and really good prices make this store a must-visit place that most probably you’ll want to ReVisit.
If you’re exploring the streets of Bucharest, there’s a good chance you will find a Monda store, because there’s nine of them scattered across the city. This second-hand store has clothes of all types, from elegant to casual wear to sportswear, all of them brought from England, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. You will find well-known brands but also no-name brands here, but be aware that the prices change almost daily. You can see how popular Monda is by the big number of people you’ll find in their stores, but don’t let that stop you! We’re almost sure that you’ll not leave empty-handed from there.
This popular second hand brand has been around for more than ten years and has around 40 stores in Romania. Their mission is to sell top-quality second-hand clothing, footwear and accessories at an affordable price to raise funds to support development projects in poor communities in Africa, India and Latin America. They also concentrate on protecting the environment by promoting reuse and recycling, so buying your clothes from there will make you feel a lot better than buying them from the mall.
