online thrift stores

It’s no secret that buying pre-loved clothing is amazing for the planet (and your personal style). You can’t beat that feeling when you find a beautiful vintage piece, in mint condition, that fits like a glove. The best thing about vintage clothing (for me at least) is that it is truly unique and you will never walk past someone else on the street wearing the same outfit.

If vintage is not your style and you prefer the more modern designers, there are plenty of options for the high-end designer babes too! You can find limited edition items from your favourite designers at ridiculously affordable prices.

A sustainable closet will be different for everyone, depending on their budget and personal style. Not all of us can afford those dream dresses made by sustainable fashion brands, so thrifting and buying secondhand is the next best option (or shall I say the first best option?).

Hardcore thrifters will absolutely thrive in a thrift store, spending hours digging through the racks to find that ultimate gem. But not all of us have the time, the ability to visit them, nor the access to great thrift stores in our home towns. Luckily for us, thrift stores have jumped on the internet and with a few simple clicks, we can find exactly what we are looking for in seconds!

Online thrift stores and secondhand retailers organise their stock in a user-friendly way, just like your average fast fashion website. You can filter down thousands of options by choosing your size, colour, brand name, and category of clothing. You can be the ultimate ethical couch potato from the comfort of your own home.

To make things easier for you to decide which online thrift store is the best one for you, I have organised them by price range, country and item category. Some of these companies have even extended their awesomeness by supporting charities and other environmental or social causes. You may have heard of a few of these online thrift stores already as they have been around for ages, take Ebay for example. Some of these stores also apply a fee to buyers and sellers, so I have made note of this in the descriptions.

I have tried to include as many countries as possible so you can limit your shipping costs and distance, but very often these stores offer global shipping. The main countries I’ve included are the UK, US and Europe.

So, let’s dive in! Here are ?? online thrift stores to bag those one-of-a-kind fashion treasures!

Goodwill is an American nonprofit that provides a number of community-based programs. Although they do a lot of good, they have recently been under the spotlight for less than admirable business practices. Donating clothing to charities also comes with its own issues.
