Nowadays, second-hand clothes and outfits from the collections before last are all that Russians can afford. The tourists shared their life hack with Russian propagandists.
Travelers who came to Kaliningrad for a vacation discovered a cheap way to update their wardrobe - buying clothes by weight. According to them, it is much cheaper than ordering brands in Russia from abroad, as stores in Russia have long been closed.
In second-hand stores, Russians are looking for clothes from Polo, Diesel, Tommy Hilfiger, Zara and other companies. They don't care if these items are outdated or used. Russians are happy that second-hand stores have cheap prices and a wide selection.
According to eyewitnesses, buyers leave stores with bags full of clothes, completely renew their wardrobe and look for things for their friends, because it is more profitable than shopping in Moscow.
