Sell locally

A lawnmower. A mirror. A life-size sculpture of Pat Butcher from Eastenders. You can sell pretty much anything through these sites and apps:


  • Gumtree
  • Facebook Marketplace
  • Shpock
  • Preloved
  • Your own social channels (a friend-of-a-friend might buy).

On average, we have around £32,951 worth of unworn clothes in our wardrobes throughout our lifetime*. That could certainly make a dent in your deposit. Try selling those unwanted threads on places like:

  • Depop
  • eBay
  • Vinted
  • Vestiaire Collective
  • Rebelle
  • Resellfridges
  • Cudoni

Rent your wardrobe

Don’t want to part with your collection?


The UK clothing rental market is predicted to be worth £2.3 billion by 2029* and you could have a slice of it. Unlike selling, you could make money from one piece of clothing again and again. Try these:


  • ByRotation
  • My Wardrobe HQ
  • Girl Meets Dress

Sell your

furniture

Outside of Gumtree and Facebook Marketplace, you can sell designer and vintage furniture here:

  • Specialist Facebook groups (e.g. Mid Century Collectors)

Boost your deposit

Sometimes you just want everything gone. No trips to the Post Office, no back-and-forth in messages. For that, try these ideas:


  • Set up a stall at your local car boot sale
  • Sell your clothes and textiles to a kilo store and get paid by weight
  • Trade old jewellery and watches at gold traders or pawn shops
  • Sell a collection of vintage clothes or furniture to vintage sellers and antique stores

The one thing about reselling? It takes effort (and not everyone can be bothered). But that’s where you could come in.


Instead of selling your own things, you can offer to sell for other people and take a cut. Either ask your friends or put up an ad on somewhere like Gumtree.

https://cdn.storifyme.com/accounts/marty-bell-8765039/assets/f-l_bkg_4-28821630935971288.jpeg?t=1640786060000

Lots of people turn reselling into a side project and so can you! Set yourself up as a business, pick a niche and sell on places like:


  • Etsy
  • eBay
  • Your own website
  • An Instagram page
  • Pop-up shops


Just remember to register yourself as an official business and file your tax return every year.
