Thrifting is a trend.
I don’t know about you but have you ever noticed the quality of clothing that most fast fashion companies are making nowadays? By the looks of it, we are definitely getting what we paid for.
That being said, no wonder thrifted fashion is slowly but surely becoming the future of the clothing industry. Aside from the obvious reason that recycling clothes help the environment. This has also become an easy way for people to get affordable yet good quality clothing.
Have you heard about selling app like Ebay, Poshmark, ThredUp, Tradesy and Depop? Well these are just some of the many selling app that are readily available for users to start selling stuff they no longer use.
Isn’t it amazing that the clothing we don’t use can turn into cash? Or make money out of donated clothing? Pretty cool if you think about it!
That’s one of the many reasons why I thrift.
Today, I’m sharing with you the T’s of Thrifting. These are the things I learned about thrifting over the years. Keep in mind though that these are based from my personal experience and has been a helpful guide in my reselling journey, however to each their own so it may or may not work for you.
Nonetheless, it wouldn’t hurt to try right?
Teach yourself to be open to learn and explore brands that you’ve never heard of! Even if some of them might be a hit or miss! It’s still nice to know.
Learning is a never ending process!
Take risk – when you spend money, it’s always a risk! There’s this fear of uncertainty but it’s also a motivating factor knowing that you’re one step closer to your goals (whatever it may be). Either way, no matter what the outcome, learn and grow through the process.
Trust your gut – when you know, you know! The success of your business solely depends on how you run it. That includes your style, what items you want to sell or as simple as where to spend your money sourcing and so on. Trusting your gut is the ultimate act of trusting yourself.
Timing is everything – be patient and wait for the right buyer at the right time! Don’t feel bad for counteroffers you’ve sent but didn’t hear from the buyer afterwards. Instead take it as “someone else will buy it and if it’s meant to be, it will happen!”
Trust the process – being good in whatever you do takes time, effort, consistency and perseverance. You do not just wake up and become a butterfly. Growth is a process.
In a nutshell, work hard, stay humble and don’t compare your chapter 1 to others’ Chapter 10.
