I’ve been requested loads about how I store on Vinted, so thought I’d share a number of suggestions.
I primarily store for interiors and children stuff secondhand on-line as I don’t have to fret concerning the match (I’ve had some dangerous luck with garments for me sadly and returns aren’t really easy!). Usually, I’ve tried to vary my considering once I need to purchase one thing – “can I get it secondhand?” is now a little bit of a mantra. It’s not all the time the case however I’m beginning to get extra accustomed to it.
I exploit it as an opportunity to purchase manufacturers I couldn’t afford at full worth, so typically I seek for manufacturers like Bobo Choses, Mini Rodini or Vans (it can save you these manufacturers on the Vinted app so this stuff come up first).
This Bobo Selected cardigan (above) was the identical worth as an H&M cardigan and it’ll have the next resale worth too. I discover an merchandise will typically depreciate rapidly however then holds its worth after that for longer (which is healthier for resellers and secondhand patrons!).
I all the time filter for dimension so there are much less gadgets to trawl by means of.
I exploit the instruments like shopping for in ‘bundles’ (particularly if I discover somebody who has an identical age youngsters!) and making presents. Should you’re shopping for multiple merchandise from a vendor, you get monetary savings on delivery and are additionally in a greater place to haggle. The choice to make a proposal on Vinted can also be really easy. I get so embarrassed to do it in individual however don’t have any qualms on the app!
I search for toys too, that are washable, extra more likely to be in an excellent situation, and have an extended lifespan (Schleich animals and Duplo slightly than cuddly toys). I’ve purchased a number of Schleich unicorns in a bundle and cut up them amongst youngsters’ birthdays all year long.
My present watches/saves:
Cos black costume dimension 12/M
Bella Freud 1970 jumper in M
Doen attire dimension 12
For the youngsters:
Clearly there are a great deal of different websites on the market too: @totswapshop is a stunning idea; I exploit apps like @gumtreeuk for interiors; @curateandrotate is superb for garments – I hope to seek out one thing there quickly. I believe for grownup clothes, movies actually assist with seeing how an merchandise matches.
I additionally love Fara for secondhand youngsters video games, books and garments – I just like the Pimlico or Notting Hill retailer and located some £5 Crocs and nice video games in virtually mint situation. I like filling the youngsters stockings with secondhand finds at Christmas and we acquire Disney dvds from charity outlets – the youngsters love selecting a movie from a pockets and urgent play!
It has been a very rewarding course of for me and I’m actually beginning to change my mindset about how I store. And I do know so lots of you like it, too!
