As long as your second-hand clothes are still in good condition, i.e. without stains, pilling or holes, it is clearly possible to resell them. There are many options for this, but which ones?
Selling your clothes at the garage sales and dressing-room booths
Did you know that? The second-hand clothing sector is booming. Almost everyone is getting rid of clothes that unnecessarily clutter up closets. People also do it to make money or to buy a new piece of clothing they have a crush on. In fact, when it comes to clothing, the French prefer to buy their second-hand clothes for the good reason that it allows them to save a lot of money while dressing elegantly. To put it simply, the stock of clothes you want to get rid of will find a buyer. To do so, nothing could be simpler. Find out about an event, specifically a garage sale or empty dressing rooms and reserve a space. When the big day arrives, all you have to do is display your cheap clothes, but also your bags and shoes that no longer have a place in your dressing room. The advantage with flea markets and flea markets is that you will be able to meet your customers directly, so you can share your passion for such and such an article to optimize the sale. So, if you are looking for conviviality and like to negotiate, the sale of clothes in the empty dressing room will suit you. Nevertheless, note that such an event only lasts one or two days, so you will have to hurry. Apart from that, it is also possible to sell your clothes at the online second-hand clothes sale as a second-hand clothes site. This gives you good visibility of your items and therefore a good price.
Sell your clothes directly from a second-hand shop
Participating in dressing-room sales and sales of clothes is not lacking in charm. However, when you don’t have enough time to negotiate in the stands, you have to find solutions for the sale of second-hand clothes. That is why it is advisable to go directly to a second-hand clothes shop. This is the simplest and easiest way to make money quickly, especially since you don’t need a hundred items of clothing because the second-hand shop will even buy two or three items of clothing. In fact, by participating in a thrift store, you have to sell several clothes so that they can decorate the stand. Moreover, thanks to the presence of an online thrift store, you won’t even have to go to the store to sell clothes. In fact, the entire negotiation can be done online, from your PC or Smartphone. However, by opting for an online thrift store, don’t expect a great buy-back price. That’s right! They themselves sell cheap clothes, so you have to offer your items at a minimum price. But since it’s an action that only takes a few minutes and you’re going to get rid of those old clothes one way or another, the online thrift store can be a good solution.
Sell your old clothes online! Yes, but how?
Online sales have been on the rise like never before lately. Indeed, since you can sell everything on the internet, why not the clothes? This way, you will be able to sell your clothes in good condition on intermediate sites that sell clothes online. The advantage with this option is that you are able to set the price of your items yourself. The only downside is that the second hand clothing site generally receives a higher or lower commission on each sale made. Moreover, the use of the platforms dedicated to use clothing sales is much easier. All you have to do is fill out a form that records the type of item, size, material, condition, brand and colour. And of course, you are allowed to post photos of the clothing taken from the best angles so that buyers can get a preview of the item. In any case, if the prospect of selling your old clothes on intermediate sites does not appeal to you, you can always opt for classified ad sites. Even if these platforms are not particularly intended for the sale of second-hand clothes, the fact that they are generalist allows a good visibility of your articles. Moreover, this option allows you to recover a good part of the purchase price.
Sell your old clothes on social networks
With thousands of users spending hours on social networks every day, this tool has become a real place to do business. So why not sell old clothes on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram? The principle remains relatively simple: all you have to do is find a group selling used clothing or other second-hand items on social networks and then post an ad. On these 21st century communication tools, there are several “vide-dressing” or “online flea market” groups that are sometimes dedicated to a specific city, region or even a department. Indeed, since social networks do not provide a remote payment solution, the buyer and seller must be in the same region so that both can easily meet for payment and delivery. The best thing about choosing this tool is that no sales commission will be deducted as you are selling on your own account. This is precisely why individual sellers prefer social networks to sales platforms. Apart from Facebook and Twitter, which are popular in France, it is also possible to sell your old clothes on Instagram through the posts on your account. The only downside is that you need to know the right hashtags, more precisely how to target potential buyers.
