Throw away your old stereotypes about second hand. If you’ve ever thought that you don’t shop there for clothes because they’ll be outdated, clearly you haven’t visited VENTEN. If you’ve ever thought you couldn’t furnish a home with second-hand items because you don’t have time to browse through a disorganized mess, you need to check out one of the several Rataplan stores around the city.

Have any other concerns? I’m more than happy to recommend a suitable store on my list to shatter your stereotypes! Or take a look at the map yourself =)

Why Shop Second Hand

  • Find unique, vintage goods
  • A thrill of the hunt: find the right thrift shop and it’s like shopping through your personal museum
  • It’s environmentally friendly: you’re giving an item a second life instead of using new/virgin resources and expending energy on manufacturing and transportation
  • Support your local businesses
  • The better your local thrift stores are doing, the more likely they’ll be able to purchase your unused items as well and you can make some money with items that you no longer use
  • Selection usually changes daily, instead of seasonally in retail stores
  • Support a good cause: many thrift stores have related social missions related to developing the community
  • When visiting a city, I love to purchase 1 item of clothing so I think back on my time there every time I wear it

Paws and Pines Ranking

I’ve selected a “ranking” for each store between 1 and 5 (5 being my favorites) as an initial attempt to provide a general sense of the shop offerings. Of course, these rankings are based on my own personal preference so you may actually love a store that I’ve ranked a 2. However, in general, stores that have a more chic and organized feel to them and have a varied and revolving section will receive my higher ranking.

How to Use the Map

Initially, the map will be set to the “Default View”, which includes every store on the map. Click the filters at the top right to choose any categories that you want to specifically view (by category or by ranking):
