Planet Xchange:

Shopping second-hand this holiday season can not only give an article of clothing a new story but also be cost effective as well.  

Whether you are looking through an antique store or consignment boutique, you can find a beloved item that will be beloved for years to come.  

In fact, second-hand gifting is on the rise due to inflation. Global Data research surveyed 1000 women on their shopping habits. The findings show that younger consumers are often more likely to gift a used item in mint condition. Out of these 1,000 women, 47 percent of them are interested and willing to shop these items.  

The term gift to thrift is now more relevant than ever.  

In Knoxville, there are hundreds of consignment stores and antique shops to choose from. Planet Xchange has been in Knoxville for over 26 years. Whether you are looking to buy or sell, they can assist throughout the whole process. They have over one hundred brands and say you can get all of your shopping done in just one store.  

“Buying a secondhand gift is no longer considered taboo. It’s recycling, and many families are committing to buying only second hand for this reason,” says owner Beth Boline.
