Secondhand Shop List

Following on from my epic update of the main brand list, which you can find over HERE, I decided to make a list of all the second-hand shops I know of. They will follow roughly the same format as the brand list, so they should be easy to understand. NOTE: some will require the use of a shopping service.



These shops are simple enough -they offer brand clothing and accessories at a discount price because it's either used or damaged in some way. Damage can range from a miniscule dot of dirt (easily removable) to unstitched lace or an open seam. Most shops offer a ranking system for you to judge the condition of the item.

* * * * * * * *

Alice+fururun
Overseas Shipping: Yes.
NOTE: Can sometimes be incredibly slow in responding to emails. I usually give them five days before emailing again.

*

Candyone
Overseas Shipping: No

*

Clothing Drop
Overseas Shipping: Yes
NOTE: American shop.

*

Closet Child
Overseas Shipping: Yes
NOTE: I mentioned this in the last list, but it deserves a place here too. Incredibly popular, so items sell fast. Usually update between 5 and 7pm Japan time on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Sales update regularly, and offer either 20% or 30% off. There is a Men's section HERE, perfect for finding trousers for aristocrat or just casual trousers as well as brand jeans. Also, an accessory-crammed Rakuten HERE

*

Dolly
Overseas Shipping: No

*

Fairy Angel
Overseas Shipping: Yes.
NOTE: Can become very pricey very quickly.

*

Grand Bazaar
Overseas Shipping: No

*

JIMU
Overseas Shipping: Yes.
NOTE: Usually rather expensive, so you don't save much, but occasionally you can find gems. Also stocks Vivienne Westwood, Gaultier, and other designers. To go direct to the gothic/lolita section, click HERE.

*

Lolitadesu
Overseas Shipping: Yes
NOTE: Danish-based shop.

*

Magnet Holic
Overseas Shipping: No

*

Maiden Clothing
Overseas Shipping: HERE.
NOTE: They currently don't accept Paypal.

*

One Day in Paradise
Overseas Shipping: Yes
NOTE: Australian shop, also stockists of Baby and Alice and the Pirates.

*

The Red Queen
Overseas Shipping: Yes?
NOTE: Netherlands-based, operates through Facebook.

*

Tokyo Alice
Overseas Shipping: Yes, just email them.

*

Trample Clothing
Overseas Shipping: Yes.
NOTE: American based shop.

*

Usagi Youhinten
Overseas Shipping: Yes

AUCTION SITES


MBOK
NOTE: Costs can easily add up. Shopping service needed, and it has a monthly subscription fee the user has to pay in order to bid. (Currently, it's 315yen a month.)

*


Yahoo! Auctions Japan
NOTE: I love this place. Shopping service needed, usually. I THINK they still charge a fee if you want to bid on items over 5,000 yen.



As usual, let me know of any changes, additions, etc. Please note: for this list, I'd rather keep it reserved for secondhand shopping, rather than just resellers of new items. I'm also thinking of creating a list for indie brands/seamstresses/things of that nature, so if you think it's a good idea, let me know. I just assume that if these lists are added to the memories or something, they'll be a good reference point, and save a lot of Googling.
