Appel & Ei, a second-hand fashion boutique which you can also find in Deventer and Zwolle, opened its doors in Groningen in September 2017 in the Oosterstraat. This shop sells good quality designer clothes. You can also bring your clothes to the shop and receive a percentage after they sell it. The clothes are arranged by colour and they have many different styles of clothes. Even clothes for men, in the back of the store. If you go up the stairs, you’ll find the more expensive clothes for women. Prices are a bit higher compared to Reshare and thrift stores, but the clothes are worth it. Part of the profit goes to a good cause: the project of the owner Griet, ‘Griet’s oogappeltjes’. This is a project for kids in Uganda.
Why: Shopping at Appel & Ei is a great first step towards a more sustainable wardrobe: nice and good quality second-hand clothes.
