Living Your Best Secondhand Life with Cinch Self Storage Enfield

With more and more people looking to adopt sustainable habits, secondhand furniture and clothing is a rising trend. Here is how Cinch Self Storage can help you live your best secondhand life. 

The secondhand market has been rising for a few years now. This is because people want to find more sustainable furniture and clothing that’s better for the environment. People are becoming more eco-conscious choosing to buy from smaller, more local businesses and very often choosing secondhand over new. 

Another factor is economic challenges people are facing, first from COVID and now from the rise in living costs.

People are going to apps such as Depop and Vinted for secondhand items. And many charities have seen a rise in sales at their charity shops. 

There has also been an increased interest in upcycling furniture as this allows people to buy second hand but also make it their own and fit perfectly within their aesthetic.

Upcycling Secondhand Enfield 

Firstly, there’s upcycling. When you move into a new home there can be a real pull to buy all new furniture.

New house, new stuff, new you. 

But, with the rise of upcycling, you can find so many amazing ideas and tips on how to breathe new life into your old furniture. So it fits within your new home and you don’t have the expense of buying all new AND you will be helping the planet. 

Deciding to upcycle brings with it space issues because in order to successfully upcycle a piece of furniture, you need a clean, dry, large space. 

This is where we can help. One of our storage units at Cinch Storage Enfield will be the perfect place to store and upcycle your furniture. 

We know this because… 

Patsy J’s are already doing just that!

Patsy J’s are Dawn and Christy, a mother-daughter team running an upcycling business, choosing furniture that was otherwise heading for landfill. 

And they do all their upcycling from a Cinch Storage unit. When they came to us they had not considered the idea that our units would work as a workshop as well as storage and so they were very happy to find that they could in fact work out of their unit. 

Our units are an extremely cost effective place to upcycle your items. 

Clothing storage at Cinch Storage Enfield 

Like upcycling in furniture, many more people are holding onto and re-wearing clothes with old school skills used to mend clothes on the rise. 

Again, this is due to a mixture of people wanting to step away from mass-produced clothing and towards more sustainable ways of buying and people needing to spend less due to the cost of living going up.

Trying to store your entire year’s worth of clothes can be quite hard. But, as we have cyclical seasons, you can also have cyclical fashion. And this is where it can help.

In Autumn/Winter, bring us your Summer/Spring clothing. In Spring/Summer, swap that all out for the Autumn/Winter. This will give you year round space in your wardrobe and your clothing will be safe with us. 

Secondhand in Enfield 

Enfield has many secondhand shops you can shop in. And whether you are new to second hand shopping or an expert, here are a few that you should take a look in:

These are all local, second hand shops but, as they are all charity shops, the money from all sales will go to each of the charities. So, it is a complete win/win for everyone. And the planet.
