The idea

Secondista is an online shop for women who loves to buy luxury secondhand goods with cool styles and great qualities.

I grew up in a poor family where my parents just managed to give me food and education. When I started going to school, friends and even teachers told me things about my appearance such as why my shirts were so old with a yellow tone, why my pants were too large and long for my size, etc. So I started looking for ways to earn money to buy myself new clothes, comic books and for other hobbies. Since then, I tended to look for good deals, bargains and negotiate for the goods that I was going to buy everytime I could. Finding a dress that I love with great price always makes me thrilled. I feel like I did give myself a present. And everytime somebody gave me compliments about the way I dressed or asked me where I bought it made me happy.

Now that I am no longer a little girl, I understand that women need to love themselves more. They need to be pretty everytime they could. And since I am a family woman, cost is also a factor that decides whether I should buy something. And I found that buying secondhand goods is the answer for all my demands: stylish, unique and affordable.

That's why Secondista was born. Isn't it cool when you could be stylish effortlessly? And it is much cooler when you do not have to pay a fortune to have that look.
