1. Gie da Odziey ywanej (Second-hand clothes market)
This market is housed in a large warehouse. Although the room is very big, there is little free space as the large tables are all piled high with clothes. Each table is devoted to different garments. Unfortunately however, the clothes are not laid out in any particular order which means that the customer simply has to dig their way through the pile of garments. Those patient enough are rewarded with fine pieces in excellent condition. Even though the prices are a little high (a T-shirt costs around 5 zł, trousers are 12 zł and sweaters 8 zł), it is well worth the expense. Second-hand clothes fans should definitely put some time aside to visit this market.
