It's that time of year when we start to get a little stir crazy, and maybe a good Spring cleaning is in order. Is it too early for that? Nah, we don't think so. If you're looking to shed some weight in your closet, and you could use a little extra cash (and who doesn't need extra cash?), there's good news headed your way. You can now sell your gently used clothing and accessories from the comfort of your own home. Game change! How, you ask? By using one of the following, simple phone apps as your personal one stop shop. Here are the contenders:
Tradesy makes it super easy to sell your stuff. Making a listing seriously takes less than a minute, and the customer service is always there to help you if you get stuck. Just make sure everything you sell is in great condition, and you can expect fair prices for your goods. When you make a sale, Tradesy sends you a pre-paid, beautiful package for your stuff!
Poshmark is one of the largest, and most successful apps of this kind on the market. Again, it is super simple to use. All you need to do is upload images of the lovely used clothing you are willing to part with, and click list. Poshmark is widely recognized as one of the front runners of this kind of commerce and has created a whole community around buying and selling clothing online. Not only can you list and shop, but you can attend virtual shopping parties with your friends!
Vinted has the features of a social networking service, and the functionality of an e-commerce site. Shop and sell items from brands like ASOS, Steve Madden, Kate Spade, and Dolce Vita. They have curated style themes you can choose from, and the layout is simple and very easy to figure out. Their mission is to make second hand shopping everyone's first choice!
Threadup is convincing consumers to live in a more share-oriented community focusing on collaborating instead of wasting. They are basically an online thrift store, but they provide inspirational outfit ideas, and a great message! If you sign up now, you get 40% off your first order, that's a pretty great deal if we do say so!
Yes, we'd be remiss not to mention Etsy. The site that started it all. Etsy's mobile app has made buying and listing your vintage clothing, or handmade goods much easier than it used to be, and their selection of soft goods is till top tier. We love Etsy!
