We’ve been reading up on the fashion resale market. Why were we doing that, and not watching anime, or collecting gacha prize keychains, or whatever? Because we noticed more people coming to us for pre-owned Japanese clothes, bags, and accessories. And we want to really get what they’re looking for.

It’s been said, more than once, that Japan’s got the biggest second-hand designer goods market in the world. Apps like Ebuy (y’know, the ones your friends are talking about) are made for selling your unwanted stuff – or buying someone else’s.

Online second-hand fashion shops are, ironically, kinda new. Not so long ago, the only way to buy from Japanese outlets was to go to Japan. As more of them make websites and online stores, it’s getting simpler.

Note up front: buying used and vintage doesn’t mean everything’s dirt cheap. But you can – and will – find decent prices that make the original RRPs look silly. And you can do it from anywhere.

Why buy second-hand from Japan?

We can’t talk used designer goods without talking modern fashion, and this is where the J-brands stand out. BAPE, visvim, and Supreme are the type of labels people start fights over. And instead of new items arriving each season, there’s a drop every week.

You’d think more regular item releases would make more supply. Until you remember what queues are like for drops… and how many people get turned away. It’s a nicer experience to stay home hitting up resellers and proxy services for those HGs. Japanese time freeze is good.

Then it’s time to accessorise. Weirdly, some of the best second-hand bag bargains aren’t on the Japanese brands. Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Prada, Hermes, and Fendi are big, popular names here.

Appearance is everything – what’s on your arm is more important that what’s in your bank account.

If the ‘used’ bag you find looks brand new, don’t get too suspicious. Chances are, it really is. The second-hand market is brimming with near-perfect condition bags.

Too legit to quit

Yet another reason to focus on Japan is that you’re way more likely to find the real deal. Counterfeiting is punished harshly here, and shops take pride in offering you the genuine article. Sellers with a track record for offering fakes get shut down pretty quick.

The place to start your hunt for designer goods is on Yahoo! Auctions Japan. Shops and private resellers alike have auction accounts, and list everything they’ve got.
