Second hand chain with six shops in Helsinki. They only have clothes and can be a bit more expensive since they give the money to charity, but you can find some cool stuff. They also have sales weeks when they will sell everything for 7 euros or less the first day and then 6 euros, 5 euros, 4 euros etc the following days.
