#LovePreloved: Tips for Buying Secondhand

Wednesday, November 05, 2014

Vinted has launched a campaign, #LovePreloved, a movement to spread the love and idea behind buying secondhand, and to dispel the myths around it. I'm happy to be apart of this campaign and to spread the word and love about preloved and secondhand clothing!

In my years of buying secondhand, I've learned the tried and true ways of buying. I've already made a guide to thrifting, and now, I'm going to tackle Vinted.

Communication is key for scoring deals on Vinted! 

1) Message the buyer using the "I Want It" button, don't use comments. Comments tend to get drowned out by other notifications, so using the "I Want It" button sends a message to the seller, so you're more likely to get a response!

2) Use the "Make an Offer" under the "I Want It" option to start a negotiation! You can offer a price, and the seller can accept or counter offer.

3) Another way to score is to use the search option and refine using relevant filters to find your perfect item. Simply type in what you're looking for, like "wide brim hat", then refine!

It's super easy to score treasures on Vinted. This hat is my favorite and most worn item I've bought from Vinted, and it was a little over a dollar. It was a fantastic score!
