Walking into a second hand clothing store in Prague is like going on a treasure hunt. Like other major capitals, Prague has a wide variety of second-hand outlets. You can find almost anything here, from retro wedding dresses to antique accessories, it all depends on your interests. Before 1989, the selection was poor because under communism clothes were viewed as functional objects that simply had to last as long as possible, if necessary held together with the help of staples or strings.
This meant that the concept of second-hand clothing didn't really exist at this time. Since then many interesting shops have opened, such as Kudy Tudy (Saska 10), which specializes in Retro/Vintage fashion. Its former name, Myrnyx Tyrnyx, may be familiar to Prague veterans because it was the first second-hand clothing store to open in the city in 1996.
