The Best Sites to Buy Used Clothing From

by  | 

Sifting through racks and racks of secondhand clothing to find one-of-a-kind pieces can be a time suck. That’s why we love to thrift online! The only qualm? Purchasing clothes via the Internet is often a hit or miss.

But you can take the guesswork out of your thrifting addiction by ordering from the sites below, which have been vetted by shoppers like yourself.  Whether you’re in the market for an affordable pair of jeans or you’re searching for a vintage designer bag, these sites have your bases covered.

Thred Up
The Amazon of secondhand shopping is conveniently owned by Amazon, so you know it’s reliable. The prices are low (up to 90 percent off the original price), the website is easy to sort through, and you can shop by style or brand. We love that each item is triple-checked and you can rest easy knowing your new purse won’t arrive with a broken zipper.

The Real Real
Keep your wallet and wardrobe happy when you buy designer goods from this website. The items range in condition and price, but everything is stated up front. We love browsing through the selection of clothes, shoes, accessories, home goods, and even art. Plus, their sale section contains some of the best treasures.
You’ll find all types of clothes on this website for some of the lowest prices around. The filters are helpful when searching — you can seek out certain fabrics, lengths, and conditions. Not only that, they have sections for men and children so you can outfit the whole family for a fraction of the price.

This is a secondhand classic and it’s still just as good. Use eBay’s filters to find what you’re really looking for without sorting through items you wouldn’t give a second glance. You’ll find anything from a discontinued Gap tee to designer jeans that might have only been worn once.

This site is great for finicky buyers or anyone who wants to know every detail before purchasing something. You get to chat with the seller, get any of your questions answered, and seal the deal, all from your computer. You can also swap items; a nice option for those who are looking to clean out their closets and get a new wardrobe in return.

Tradesy really hits the mark when it comes to popular brands that range from low to high end. This website is especially great if you’re skeptical about buying secondhand designer goods because everything is verified 100 percent authentic. Can’t pay upfront for that bag you’ve been lusting after? Luckily, they offer a monthly payment option. Tradesy is also great if you’re looking to sell — you send your items in and they’ll immediately let you know what you can expect to make.

    Avoid Mercari! Been getting really bad items and they always seem to side with the seller ( guess that’s easier ). I had to file a paypal / credit card dispute. Fortunately I was able to recover my $$ after the seller sent me some items far from as described

    You should have at the top of your list. I’ve gottn Born sandals, JCrew loafers, Coach loafers, Merill sandals, tons of name brand clothing like Liz Claiborne, Talbots, Apostrophe, Liz and Me, Elisabeth by Liz Claiborne, Eddie Bauer, Land’s End, Gloria Vanderbilt, George, Tommy Hillfigger – just to name a few. And sorts their clothes and will only accept good or better condition, so you’re always getting something in good to new with tags on condition. They have a fair category, but what they call fair most other places would call good and what other places call fair, they donate or return to seller. is the best secondhand shop there is and their prices are ridiculously low! You can’t beat them!

    Highly recommend Tradesy and TRR but you can add Poshmark to your list (and stop by my closet while you’re there 😊).

    Thred Up was a rip off. I got $1.50 for a bag of very nice clothes. Poshmark has been the best so far about paying the consigner.
