Ottawa's preloved shops

Updated: Jan 16

One way to reduce our consumption is to buy preloved clothes. If you think about it, every pre-owned garment purchased means one less new garment being produced. Each new item produced requires an immense amount of energy. I have found some of the most unique items while browsing through these shops and want to share a short guide with you.

Ottawa has a great preloved and secondhand shop scene that is spread across the city. You will be pleasantly surprised by the selection at these shops.
