Abstract

Today, second-hand businesses, play an increasing role in prolonging product lifetime and postponing product obsolescence through circularity. Currently, research on circular consumption is nevertheless still limited (van Dam et al., 2020). While the resell and reuse of products is still a ‘niche phenomenon’ (Wilts et al., 2021), the mere existence of second-hand businesses, including private retro shops, charity shops, and shops at municipality recycling stations illustrates, the acquisitions of products does not have to be from the first cycle of consumption (Gregson & Crewe, 2003). In this paper, we research second-hand shops, as we argue these are important to contribute knowledge on how to support circular consumption and increase the lifetime of products in use. Through observations at second-hand shops (n=20) and semi-structured interviews (n=11) with different types of second-hand retailers, we identify six cumulative resell strategies used to sell second-hand goods. These strategies include: 1) pricing, 2) cleaning, 3) research brand, 4) renew or restore, 5) repurpose or upcycle, and 6) identifying the history.
