So they decided to drop prices in the shops (only for the day) to start the Christmas season.
Uk started following the trend around 2010 and since then it has been a peak pre-Christmas

and vintage shops, go on Vinted... possibilities are endless and there is a lot of
beautiful second-hand garments waiting for you out there!
4. Buy Local, Support a small business
