This holiday season, most of the Christmas presents Akil McLeod buys for his family members already belong to someone else. It is a shopping habit that McLeod, who turns 30 on Christmas Day, has been practicing for nearly a decade. Last year, he gave his wife a green leather jacket that he bought at a garage sale. It fit like a glove. Once, he shocked his mom with a vintage Gucci purse. She been getting those really unique gifts from me and they are something that you wouldnt find at Macys, said McLeod, former educator who now works full time reselling items on sites such as EBay and Poshmark from his home in Santa Barbara. Of the $100 he plans to spend this season on personal gifts, he estimates 70% will be from secondhand stores, where he says he snag better deals and enjoys the thrill of hunt. Vintage is probably the biggest that it has ever been, he say. McLeod is part of a growing group of consumers who feel comfortable incorporating secondhand items into their holiday shopping list. Once taboo, pre-owned market is increasingly seen as a savvy way for shoppers to save money, discover harder-to-find items and reduce their carbon footprint in the age of disposable fashion. Buying secondhand isnt necessarily the same as committing the unthinkable act of changing term popularized in the 1995 episode of Seinfeld as unwanted label maker get pass person to person. Nearly half of US consumers say they would consider giving use apparel as a present this year, according to a study from Accenture. Even more say they would enjoy receiving gifts from the resale market. Things are changing, especially among young people who try to be sustainable and want to be part of a circular economy, said Sucharita Kodali, analyst at Forrester Research. Those are ones that are not only going to be purchasing this stuff but going to feel good about buying it as gifts and introducing friends and family to those brands as well. Resale has been growing rapidly across the United States, with the secondhand market forecast to grow to $51 billion by 2023, according to an estimate by online thrift store ThredUp. Give that growth, resale businesses are prepping for what could be their biggest holiday season yet, especially as Americans rev up to spend more than they did last holiday season. But it's not just yard sales and corner shops. Even before the holidays, 2019 has been a landmark year for secondhand sellers, especially as local thrift shops go corporate. This spring, Neiman Marcus invested in Fashionphile, pre-own-goods e-commerce company focus on luxury handbags and accessories. Macy's Inc. And JC Penney Co. Both announce in August partnerships with ThredUp. Luxury consignment shop RealReal Inc. Go public in a $300-million offering in June. In addition, venture capital investors have pumped more than $1. 1 billion of funding into use-clothing operations over the past several years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Middle-Price Christmas Shopping

Just because this year's holiday season is different than most doesn't mean you have to forgo your tried-and-true traditions entirely.

Bargain Shopping

Christmas is exciting, but the week after the holiday can be just as much fun. That's when retailers quickly replace holiday decor with sale signs that advertise big end-of-season sales, in a final effort to entice shoppers to buy winter products. Smart bargain shoppers flood stores looking for deep discounts on winter merchandise. Before you shop, look carefully at promotional materials to be sure items that interest you are on sale at your favorite store. Shops like Target, Walmart, and Kohl's will certainly run after-Christmas sales, but check to be sure you're hitting the right store at the right time to find items that interest you and your family.
