Second Hand September Shopping in Dundee

Hello lovelies,

Jillian here, today I am chatting about my favourite places to buy pre-loved and vintage clothing in Dundee. Did you know it is Second Hand September? This is a month to say no to fast fashion and the waste that comes with it and find joy in second hand clothing. 

Did you know that according to Greenpeace the fashion industry is the world's second biggest polluter after the oil industry? Every single second, 2,625 kilos of clothing becomes waste! Also it takes around 10 - 20,000 litres of water to produce just 1 kilo of cotton! 

There really are already enough clothes on this earth so shopping pre-loved just makes sense! Here are my favourite places to shop for second hand and vintage clothing in Dundee.

1 - Sook Souk

Sook Souk is a gorgeous new vintage shop on Perth Road. Luckily enough for me it is directly opposite my shop The Little Green Larder so I can pop in any time I like.

Sook Souk has such a gorgeous range of vintage clothing, there is honestly something for everyone. It has such a fun and laid back vibe and always has great music playing! Head down to The Perth Road and stop by! 

2 - Average Alice 

Average Alice can be found on Instagram and Depop, however this month she has a pop up at The Little Green Larder. 

Throughout the month Alice will be adding new clothes to the pop up so make sure you stop by more than once. 

I have already raided her range and found these 3 outfits that are just perfect for my upcoming trip to Bali!

3 - The Little Green Larder Second Hand September Pop-up Shop

Here at The Little Green Larder we are hosting a Second Hand September Pop-up Shop. We are accepting donations of adult clothing, accessories, shoes, bags and home wear. If you donate you will receive a voucher to spend at our pop up on a new item (see here for Terms and Conditions). 

Transition Dundee is a community led social enterprise in Dundee. They run The Community Fridge in Dundee's West End and The Wardrobe - a preloved clothing shop with a difference. 

Not only does The Wardrobe sell a fantastic range of pre-loved clothing, it also hosts workshops, knitting socials and clothing repair drop in's.

5 - Tilted Duck Vintage

Tilted Duck can be found online, on Etsy and at Dock Street Studio's in Dundee. 

There is a gorgeous selection of vintage clothing down at Dock street Studios and even more to be found on their website. I am obsessed with this green floral dress! 

The Shelter Charity Shop
in Dundee is fantastic. It is right next door to my shop The Little Green Larder, so I shop there a lot! 

Karen and the team always have such an amazing selection of clothing, shoes and accessories and the shop looks fantastic. 

All of these dresses are from The Shelter Shop

Next time you would like to buy a new outfit why not have a look around your local vintage, pre-loved and charity shops to see what you can find. I am always complimented on my outfits and I always shop pre-loved!
