I have a tonne of charity shop and carbooting tips to share for #secondhandseptember.. but I know that kind of shopping requires the privilege of being able to get there and having the time, so I also want to share a host of tips and tricks for buying secondhand online too.
My favourite places to shop secondhand online are: eBay
Facebook selling groups
I will go into some of these in more detail in future posts but here’s a few eBay tips for today…
As well as picking up ace secondhand clobber from folks having a clearout, there’s loads of resellers of vintage and regular clothing (I do this myself – hence the photo!) who being businesses offer detailed listings with measurements and great returns policies so you don’t have to worry about forking out and something not fitting right.
On eBay you can filter by ‘used’ only, and also by ‘returns accepted’ as well as by things like fabric and price and auction / buy it now to your preference (I haaate waiting for auctions to end!).
Searching for lowest price and P&P and items ending soonest can throw up some real bargains, and the buyer protection is amazing on eBay if anything does go wrong.
Seeking out bundles can also work out amazing value especially for kids clothes. If you are looking for specific items setting up a saved search, for example ‘tan saltwater sandals size 5’ with alerts for when it’s listed helps to make sure you can snap it up when things become available.
