Many thrift stores have had to temporarily shut their doors, but there are still great options for shopping secondhand online. We’ve gathered the best tips for you from some of the savviest ethical shoppers we know: the TRC community. Here are their tried and true rules for shopping online for secondhand clothes.
1. Choose familiar brands
“So, I just tried Poshmark for the first time a few weeks ago. I know what brands tend to fit me well and can search for my size. I read the comments/questions closely, and I check to see the rating a seller has. Oh-- and for these overalls I searched the brand and this particular pair from the brand’s website. I got to read more reviews on the fit there.” - Brandy Ostream
4. Take your time
“I have a pretty good rule for myself of spending Poshmark credit I have rather than money, so it encourages me to sell things when I want to update my closet so I don't keep piling up more and more stuff. It makes me save things for later to make sure I really want them (and sometimes by then, the price has dropped too!).” - Annette Hammond
