So You’re Fed Up of Fast Fashion

Start at these UAE-based thrift stores.

An alternative to the traditional fashion shopping experience of factory-fresh items is making itself known in the UAE: thrifting. Not only is it a great way to create a unique look, but it’s also the definitive way to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Thrift stores usually sell lightly used items while promoting sustainability by extending the life cycle of a product that might otherwise end up in a landfill. Sound appealing? Here are three UAE-based thrift stores that belong on your radar.

Fashion Rerun

What kind of pre-loved items do you sell?

We sell a wide selection of thrift, retro, and vintage clothing for men, women, youth, and children. Our collection includes activewear, jerseys, running shoes, caps, and so much more!

How long have you been in business?

Fashion Rerun has been in the market for just over four years now.

What makes you different from other thrift stores?

We offer a unique range in quality, price, and choice. Additionally, we are probably the only store that offers a full range of thrift, retro, and vintage.

How do you differentiate between thrift, retro, and vintage?

Thrift clothing is gently used items at a discounted price. They include current styles and trends. Retro clothing is newer clothing that imitates styles of the past (vintage). Vintage refers to items aged 15+ years that are rare and difficult to find, and therefore have higher value compared to retro and thrift clothing. 

Can I sell items to the store? 

Fashion Rerun does not buy from individuals.

FlairOnThrift

What kind of pre-loved items do you sell? 

FlairOnThrift sells pre-loved clothing that was lightly used and is in good condition to be worn. Our collection includes shirts, jumpsuits, jackets, and dresses. We also sell accessories, so you can find bags, jewellery, and even phone covers on our page.

How long have you been in business? 

FlairOnThrift was started on September 9, 2020 and has been around for almost a year now!

How is your concept different compared to other thrift stores?

FlairOnThrift is an Instagram-born store that, like a lot of similar stores, only sell products online through Instagram. The store was created out of passion for sustainability and a desire to cater to people on a budget. We work on a limited product drop basis instead of continuously having items for sale, as we believe this helps us to specially curate items for our customers. Unlike a lot of other stores, we also make sure that all our posts of sold items are archived so that everything you see on our page is up for sale, and not just marketing. We believe that this makes it much easier for customers to shop. 

Can I sell items to the store?

Yes! We accept clothing, shoes, and accessories such as bags, hats, or jewellery to be sold on our platform in exchange for store credit.

How does the process work? What items do you not take?

You can DM or contact us using the contact information provided on our Instagram page, and we will schedule a pick-up. After receiving the items, we will provide you with store credit. The items should not be overly damaged nor for kids.

Rewynd Apparel

What kind of pre-loved items do you sell? 

We specialise in thrifted apparel that caters to both men and women such as jeans, outerwear, tees, blouses, accessories, and more. Our most sought-after products are from our Premium + Vintage line, where customers can find rare pieces dating back to the 80s and 90s, official merch, and even dead stock. 

How long have you been in business? 

We launched our online store along with our first collection in August of 2020, so we’re just about to celebrate our first anniversary!

How is your concept different compared to other thrift stores? 

Rewynd Apparel was founded by three sisters with a passion for fashion, styling, and marketing, and we aim to create a memorable thrifting experience for all our customers. Every piece on our website has been handpicked by us, every letter that we send out has been handwritten by us, and our packaging is zero-waste as well. We also enjoy showcasing a variety of styling options to reflect the ease and versatility of incorporating thrifted clothes into our customers’ personal styles.

Can I sell items to the store? 

Rewynd Apparel is a specially curated thrift store, and our business model and brand values are not tailored to suit the concept of consignments. Therefore, we currently do not accept consignments.
