More and more people are turning to second-hand shops or online marketplaces to furnish their homes and their wardrobes. Sustainability and re-using or recycling is an obvious benefit, but vintage clothing also has the added bonus of being more unique, and designer labels come with an infinitely more affordable price tag. 

Here’s a list of second-hand, vintage and charity clothing shops in Luxembourg. If you’re decluttering your wardrobe, you can pass on items in good condition to some of these stores for resale, or better still, donate them to the charity shops listed below.

If we've missed a place, tell us and we'll add it to the list.

Cocktail dresses, shoes, and handbags of a high quality is what you’ll find at this shop that’s open Tuesday to Friday from 13.00 until 17.00, and Saturday 11.00 to 17.30.
