This shop has a central purpose to reduce household waste. It’s main focus is on taking in electrical items, repairing them and reselling them. But it also has other household items. It offers house collections if necessary.
This is a huge place (over 90 square metres) that sells more than 3,600 items of unwanted clothing. It’s less a fashion store and more a charity shop, but it’s a good place to pick up a cheap bargain. All proceeds go to their charity in the Congo, working towards improving the local quality of life.
Space Vintage is a quirky little store not far from the main railway station (St Charles) and the main central Canebière road in the centre of Marseille. It’s a high quality store, selling only the big names as well as collector’s items. It has clothes but also jewellery, handbags, shoes and other items to wear. Well worth a look.
Ccom’9 is a second-hand clothes shop where people take their unwanted clothing to sell. The shop keeps the clothes for three months and the donors get a proportion of the sales price if they sell. The title of the shop is a play on words – com’9 is pronounced “comme neuf“, which means “like new”. They only accept clothing of a good quality and recognised brands.
This place opened 17 years ago, called “Premier Pas” (First Steps). It was a second-hand shop for baby clothes. It has since transformed itself into a high-end used clothing/fashion store, specifically for special events, like weddings. It’s a great place to pick up intricate jewellery, hats, shoes and bags.
