Recycled kids fashion is so trendy: check our selection of best addresses and pop ups in San Francisco

 

Used is the new new... even (or especially) when it comes to buy clothes for the kids! Second-hand stores are about to become the new way to shop - and actually to dress up - for young models with trendy moms.

 

Beyond the economic impact - on your own personal finances and on the global fashion industry - beyond the environmental impact too, fashion for kids, in its second hand, thrift, recycled version, is so appealing.

 

To help you and maybe inspire you, we had shared a while ago our selection of best second hand stores by San Francisco neighborhood with different nuances according to shopping and clothing styles, from thrift to vintage chic stores.
