Once Again is a full service ecommerce platform for lightly used high end occasional clothes, offering complete anonymity to the buyers and the sellers.
Our mission is to unlock the value of occasional wear clothes lying unused in the closets of the people.
We encourage selling pre-owned clothes because our closets are overflowing with the clothes we love, but don't wear. Because if we don't unlock these clothes, they will eventually end up into the landfills. Because we all feel a tad bit guilty in buying more new clothes, when we already have so many clothes in our closets.
People, who wish to wear different clothes on every occasion and are environmentally responsible, will buy these. Items at Once Again are of exceptional value, often at less than 50% of their estimated worth, when new. These were handpicked to wear just for few hours for a special occasion by people like you. For example, a designer saree worth 20K may become a steal at Once Again for just 8k.
Expect to find lightly worn party/special occasion Sarees and brand new Designer Blouses for now.
We all wear pre-owned clothes within our own families. The assurance that it is clean and cared for by the family, makes it easy. Today, when we purchase a new saree, it may have been tried by 50 different people before it landed in your shopping basket. That new saree you just bought, is technically not "clean". Every single used item that is sold through us, goes through a professional cleaning before it is shipped to you.
Buying used clothes is less common because it is a newer concept. We buy previously used houses, used cars, used motorcycles, used mobiles because they have a lot of residual life and it's good value for money. Remember, every single Once Again item goes through a professional cleaning before it is shipped to you, so there is nothing to worry.
If you give your clothes to your maids, we applaud your generous streak and urge you to keep doing it. However, many of your party wear and special occasion clothes may be a total misfit for your maids. You may be able to give more smiles by converting those clothes into cash and letting them use the cash to buy something they really need. Ask yourself, what will be more useful to the maids - a saree worth 10k or 4k in cash?
