All of us have things lying around the house that we just don’t know what to do with anymore. Whether it’s furniture, clothing, accessories, or even baby item. You don’t want to toss them away if they’re in good condition, so whats the solution? Sell it! Not only will give your second hand items a better home, you will also make some extra cash on the side! Who knows, maybe while you’re selling your stuff, you may come across another preloved item that you just can’t live without! Here are a few of my favourite places to sell or buy all sorts of used items in Dubai.
iSell is perhaps one of my favourite preloved stores in Dubai. It is located in the heart of Karama, which gives it a cultural, old town charm that is very different from all the malls that we are used to. When I go there, I’m not sure what excites me most; the amazing bargains or the wide variety of exclusive vintage clothing that they have. Phone: 04-3342494
