Falling for Thrifting

Fall is coming around the corner and that means it is time to update my wardrobe. My favorite way to do that is thrifting! Second-hand shopping has become my new quarantine hobby. There are so many benefits to thrifting. First it’s sustainable, which is super important in saving the environment today. Second, it is cheaper than shopping in retail stores. It is also super fun and unique. I’ve listed below some great ways to shop second hand!

1. Depop

Depop is an app/website where you can find second hand clothing and accessories for great prices. My favorite thing about Depop is that you can find authentic vintage items where there are set prices or you can also make offers and negotiate. There are so many cute items and it's sectioned off into categories so you can find your vibe. You can also follow people if you love the items they are selling and keep up with their restocks. 

2. Etsy

Etsy is also great for finding vintage and second hand clothing. Etsy sells a lot more than clothing as well including things from shoes to jewelry to stickers. There are a lot of handmade accessories on Etsy which is my favorite part. You can find beautifully handmade jewelry or hand painted custom shoes. 

3. Instagram

As shocking as this seems Instagram is my favorite place to thrift. I recently started my own thrifting account and am selling my own clothes. There are so many different thrifting accounts for every person! From vintage jeans, to lululemon, or Champion, you can find many name brand accounts or just random ones. There are many accounts that also thrift flip which is where they buy clothes from thrift stores and redesign them whether that is painting it, distressing, cropping and so much more. 

4. Poshmark

Poshmark is really similar to Depop. It is a place for people to sell used clothes, accessories, handbags, and shoes. There are also many boutiques on the site! A great feature is Poshmark Parties, these are virtual events.

5. Local Thrift Shops

There are many thrift and second-hand shops that you can find locally. Some major ones are Goodwill, Savers, and the Salvation Army. There are also smaller ones that you can find by searching “thrift shops near me” online. 

 

You can also sell any of your clothes and accessories at any of the online ones as well!
