Secondhand shopping in Jerusalem was once the realm of people who couldn’t afford to buy clothes in “regular” stores. Over the past few years, however, the city has become home to a wide array of secondhand and vintage clothing stores, catering to an ever-growing crowd of fashion-lovers and those in search of a bargain buy.
