Б/у, сэконд-хэнд

The things having had a previous owner are called б/у (pronounced бэ-у) or сэконд-хэнд in slangy speech. Б/у is an abbreviation for бывший в употреблении, originates from private ads in newspapers. Synonym: бэушный. (Бэушная Нокия = Б/у Нокия)

The word "сэконд-хэнд" refers mostly to clothing.
