Re-Sale Industry Facts
The Trend in Shopping for clothing is changing. More people are looking for value and quality in second hand garments. Not only just saving money but considerations in environmental costs. Victoria's Closet and Vic's For Men take Gently worn or New items and turn them around and make a New Home for them. Here are just a few things we have heard and wish to pass along to you:

"Society places value on having the latest styles over sustainability. One day, I looked at my closet and realized it was filled with disposable pieces I didn't love, so I decided to change the way I shop. My solution was to start buying quality secondhand pieces over fast fashion. It turns out great style doesn’t have to cost a pretty penny.

The next generation of shoppers have more circular fashion habits.

Some Consignment Shoppers are motivated by sustainability. Not only that, but it’s the unique experience of Thrifting and Hunting for that Special piece they crave the most.

"For Gen Z, thrifting isn’t just a way to shop — it’s a lifestyle. Thrifting feels emblematic of the way Gen Z strays from the beaten path. They want to be independent. They want to save the planet. They want to save money — and make money. And they want to do it all in a cute outfit that costs less than $10. Thrifting makes that possible.

Eliza Huber, Fashion Market Writer at Refinery29

Around 70% of fashion’s Greenhouse Gas emissions come from upstream activities, such as fabric production. Throwaway fashion culture perpetuates the problem, with the average consumer discarding clothes after only 7 or 8 wears.

If items are unacceptable for display and sale in our stores they are sent to several community charity programs where the garments may be repurposed again. 

Victoria's Closet and Vic's For Men is a Female Owned and Operated business. 

Thank you for shopping with us and we look forward to your return.
