Secondhand market is blooming in Dubai



The more society develops, the shorter the toy life cycle, that's when Mrs. Deepa - old toy company Toys We Loved, Dubai saw the potential of this market.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many economic sectors to wobble, many companies have had to reduce their production and business, but the pandemic is bringing new opportunities to the second hand business.  Consumption of used, or "second-hand" items has traditionally been a hallmark of tough times, but it's now flourishing in a country as lavish as the United Arab Emirates.

 Recently, Mrs. Deepa Tejnani - a former banker has decided to quit her job to focus on selling used toys.  Second hand toys, a concept that was once unfamiliar in Dubai.  She shared: "A lot of the toys people sell are still brand new. Call it old toys, but you'll see, you can buy almost new items, for now only 1/5 of the price. Same  At the moment, the COVID-19 pandemic is making more people care about how they are spending."

 In just a few minutes, an old toy can reach children in the form of a beautiful gift.  The more society develops, the more material it becomes.  However, at the same time, the reuse of old furniture is no longer a story of poor families, but is now seen as a way of life for civilized people.

Buying used toys for children, it is not necessarily a story about money.  It is also a way of education. A mother said  "I always teach my children that, instead of looking at a discarded item, why don't you think of a way to share it with others, especially when it's still good. Sharing is love. Along with that mindset,  I also feel happy when I reuse someone's item."

 In a land where luxury shopping centers are like a specialty.  Fashion stores, selling used goods like La Suite, are attracting more and more customers.  Sometimes there are unique fashion items that are no longer found on the market, or sometimes expensive branded items are sold cheaply when the owner no longer likes them.

 Ms. Laetitia Tissot - La Suite Store, Dubai shared: "The pandemic has left many people at home. People have more time to look at their wardrobe... and then they realize there are so many things they don't use anymore.  That's when they feel the waste. So more and more people come here, sell their things and buy other things that are also used."

 Fashion items, toys or electronics are currently ranked among the top items that are wasted in everyday life.  Calculations show that every year, nearly 13 million tons of clothes, equivalent to about $480 million, are thrown away, although still in good condition.  Reusing old furniture is therefore becoming a popular lifestyle.
