5 Best Places to Online Thrift

There are so many benefits to thrifting online. I just thrifted the cropped black sweater I’m wearing in the picture above! My favorite aspect of online thrifting is the freeing feeling I get knowing I’m not contributing to the production of more waste. Whether you’re thrifting in perosn or online, is a great way to practice sustainable fashion. It’s also such a time saver and online thrift sites save you the struggle of sifting through unwanted items. Finding exactly what you want/need can take as little as just a few minutes! But where should you online thrift? Are there any good online thrift stores? Yes, there are lots! Here are the best 5 places to online thrift.

Poshmark

Poshmark is probably the best-known online marketplace for online thrifting. It’s an app-based marketplace featuring hundreds of thousands of users and millions of thrifted items. The app first launched eight years ago and has since garnered a huge user base. Poshmark offers a wide variety of clothing for women, men, and children. They also offer shoes, accessories, & beauty products. Their Instagram-like feed makes shopping so much fun. You can find everything from designer items like Chanel flats to premium brands like Good American, Michael Kors, and even more affordable brands like Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Old Navy, and Asos. and Fun fact: Rachel Zoe and Ashton Kutcher are investors! Get $10 when you sign up for a Poshmark account using my referral code: jeanettepvega. 

Tradesy

Tradesy is also an app based platform, similar to Poshmark, with an emphasis on luxury goods. This is the place to go to find you next thrifted designer bag or shoes. One great feature about Tradesy is the ability to communicate directly with sellers or buyers. I’ve been able to negotiate for a lower price on more than one occasion. You can find luxury items from designers like Stella McCartney, YSL, Prada and more. 

Goodwill Online

Did you know Goodwill has an online store? They do and it’s a treasure trove of amazing finds! You can find anything from clothing to furniture, rare collectable art & jewelry pieces, and even cars for sale!  Goodwill’s online store is set up auction-style, much like eBay. This is a great option if you’re looking to buy a thrifted gift for a loved one. Keep it sustainable by shopping Goodwill online. 

Thred Up

Thred Up is my favorite app for getting the most bang for your buck. They offer a wide variety of brands at super low prices. There’s no option to bargain but there’s no need to because prices are already super affordable. You can find brands like J. Crew and Free People items as low as $8. Tradesy also offers a really awesome consignment service that allows you to send in all your unwanted items and they’ll do all the work of selling them for you. 

The Real Real

The Real Real is the leading luxury online consignment store. You’ll find just about any luxury brand you can think of here. They often have 20% off sales and a few times throughout the year they have 50% off sales. Items go fast so if you see something you like, it’s best to buy it asap. The Real Real is the best place to find gently used luxury items because they authenticate every item before it goes up.

The past few days have just flown by! New projects, furniture shopping, and work have me feeling dizzy! While it’s exhausting me to pieces, it’s also quite exciting. I can’t wait to share some fun new things I’m working on from some of my favorite Etsy shops, it’s going to be so good! We shot these images this past Saturday and I wasn’t able to get them up until now because I’ve been planning and shopping for the house. I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year so I have one month to fill my new house with furniture, decorate it, and tackle the ever increasing chaotic mess that is my home office; all while maintaining my current work flow. The anxiety is kicking in just thinking about it. Getting back to these images, it was late in the day when we decided to shoot these. We were so stretched for time but were able to get a bit of light as the sun was setting. That’s why the first image looks so different from the rest. Even though we were so pressed for time, I just had to shoot these shoes. I found them on Poshmark. They’re by Yves Saint Laurent, one of my favorite designers. These little gems are my new obsession and I can’t wait to style them again.

Los últimos días han volado! Nuevos proyectos, comprando muebles, y el trabajo me tienen mareada! A pesar de que me está agotando tanto, es también muy emocionante. No puedo esperar para compartir algunas cosas nuevas divertidas en cuales estoy trabajando. Son cosas que vienen de algunas de mis tiendas favoritas de Etsy, les van a encantar! Capturamos estas imágenes el pasado sábado y  no via sido capaz de publicarlas hasta ahora porque he estado planeando y comprando cosas para la casa. Este año, yo so el anfitrión del dia de Acción de Gracias, así que tengo un mes para llenar mi nueva casa con muebles, decorar, y poner en orden el desastre que crece cada dia en mi oficina. Aparte de todo eso tengo que mentener mi flujo de trabajo actual. Me da ansiedad en sólo pensar en ello. Volviendo a estas imágenes, era tarde en el día cuando decidimos fotografiar este atuendo. Estábamos muy cortos de tiempo, pero pudimos conseguir un poco de luz un poco antes de que el sol se fue. Es por eso que la primera imagen se ve tan diferente del resto. A pesar de que estábamos tan cortos con el tiempo, tenía que fotografiar estos zapatos. Los encontré en Poshmark. Son de Yves Saint Laurent, uno de mis diseñadores favoritos. Estas zapatillas son mi nueva obsesión y no puedo esperar para fotografiar las de nuevo.
