I’ve been requested loads about how I store on Vinted, so thought I’d share just a few ideas.
I primarily store for interiors and children stuff secondhand on-line as I don’t have to fret in regards to the match (I’ve had some dangerous luck with garments for me sadly and returns aren’t really easy!). Typically, I’ve tried to alter my considering after I wish to purchase one thing – “can I get it secondhand?” is now a little bit of a mantra. It’s not at all times 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 usually I seek for manufacturers like Bobo Choses, Mini Rodini or Vans (it can save you these manufacturers on the Vinted app so these things come up first).
This Bobo Selected cardigan (above) was the identical worth as an H&M cardigan and it’ll have a better resale worth too. I discover an merchandise will usually depreciate shortly however then holds its worth after that for longer (which is best for resellers and secondhand patrons!).
I at all times filter for measurement so there are much less gadgets to trawl by way of.
I exploit the instruments like shopping for in ‘bundles’ (particularly if I discover somebody who has an identical age children!) and making affords. Should you’re shopping for multiple merchandise from a vendor, you lower your expenses on transport 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 particular person however don’t have any qualms on the app!
I search for toys too, that are washable, extra more likely to be in a superb situation, and have an extended lifespan (Schleich animals and Duplo quite than cuddly toys). I’ve purchased just a few Schleich unicorns in a bundle and cut up them amongst children’ birthdays all year long.
My present watches/saves:
Cos black costume measurement 12/M
Bella Freud 1970 jumper in M
Doen attire measurement 12
For the youngsters:
Clearly there are a great deal of different websites on the market too: @totswapshop is a beautiful idea; I exploit apps like @gumtreeuk for interiors; @curateandrotate is wonderful for garments – I hope to search out one thing there quickly. I feel for grownup clothes, movies actually assist with seeing how an merchandise suits.
I additionally love Fara for secondhand children video games, books and garments – I just like the Pimlico or Notting Hill retailer and located some £5 Crocs and nice video games in nearly mint situation. I really like filling the youngsters stockings with secondhand finds at Christmas and we gather Disney dvds from charity retailers – the youngsters love choosing 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 a lot of you adore it, too!
