One person’s rubbish is another’s treasure

Guide to second-hand shops

The purchase of used items tends increasingly to be linked to the crisis, but second-hand shops have always existed all over the place. There are lots of people for whom buying used goods is a lifestyle, either for financial reasons, or because what they are looking for is no longer produced.

Some shops specialise in clothing, some in records, furniture or books, and others are more general and sell all types of things, rather like mini-versions of Lisbon’s Feira da Ladra. This market is still the place for second-hand items par excellence, despite the proliferation of antiques fairs and flea markets throughout the country. Going beyond websites, fairs, auctions and markets, welcome to ECO123’s guide to second-hand shops, focusing in this edition on Lisbon.
