Ghent contains several second hand stores. Since the demand is higher than the supply, prices are rarely reasonable. Think Twice (a Finnish chain) distinguishes itself from all the others by their very democratic prices.
Every five weeks the collection changes. The last two weeks all clothes are on sale, starting from -30% and ending with 4, 3, 2 – and on the last day – € 1! A few months ago I scored a pair of brown Italian – almost unworn – high heels for a measly sum of € 3! Over here you can also find great dresses and other stuff for a costume party.
Recycling clothes isn’t only ecologic, at T2 selling second hand clothes also serves a human intent: the profit goes to a charity (Humana) that invests in several projects in developing countries.
Think twice isn’t a one shop project: this Finnish chain counts 10 stores in Flanders at the moment. Apart from the one in Ghent, you can find shops in Antwerp (4!), Brussels (2), Louvain and Bruges.
The store in Ghent is open on Sunday morning, which is perfect to combine with a visit to the bookmarket at the Ajuinlei (check out the article Ajuinlei here)!
Some other news: in January Think Twice opened a second store at Nederkouter 118 (picture)! (same opening times)
