FINDS

FINDS - sell clothes online Tiktok

Have You Tried Swapping Clothes?

Alright, so this might be a bit left field for you. But have you ever considered swapping your clothes? Now we aren't just talking about swapping clothes with your bestie or a family member. There are a range of clothes swapping apps online. 

Dopplle - Clothes Swapping App

We recently discovered Dopplle which is the #1 Free Clothes Swapping app dedicated to students. They were even so kind as to write us a brilliant guest post which you can read right here

Untagged Fashion

We also like this app called Untagged, where you can turn your clothes into tokens. You can then use these tokens to update your wardrobe. Again, you might not be selling your clothes but you can still trade something in that doesn't fit or you no longer love for something that piques your fancy.

 Mission Accomplished?

 We hope that this guide has helped to steer you in the right direction. If you need a little bit of persuasion why you should sell your vintage goods online, then read the story of this vintage Laura Ashley dress...
