Here are my favourite second hand shops. Great for buying kids clothes, ski equipment, books and games. I’ve also included online places for buying and selling second hand items.
Carla are the charity shops for Caritas and are all over Graz. One of the biggest I visit is in Andritz (Lindengasse) where they have a room with sports equipment and also a furniture dept. They all usually have a English book shelf.
Kids Second hand
Waldis Laden ( Dietrichsteinplatz) has a huge selection – be prepared to wade through piles of clothes. They also have scooters, bikes, toys, ski equipment etc.
All4Kids (Jakomini) has a good selection of clothes, toys plus ski equipment
Pascalino ( Hasnerplatz) is a smaller store but also good selection of games, clothes, books etc
Pepino (Annenstrasse) is a small store selling mostly children’s clothes. The owner is very nice and will help you find whatever you need.
Andrea’s Ski Laden is outside Graz in Premstätten where they have a huge selection of second hand skis, helmets, boots etc for kids and adults. They are very helpful and will measure your feet and help you find the right size. They are open by appointment only, ensuring you get great personal service.
Nachhaltig in Graz (a great environmentally friendly group) has set up a free store in St Leonard where you can bring and take household items, clothes, toys and more with no charge. A great initiative to keep things out of the landfill
Grazer Mamas Marktplatz is good facebook group to sell and buy kids things.
Willhaben is useful place to find and sell just about anything.
