Where to Get Clothes to Sell on Poshmark or Depop
1. Check Your Closet
When was the last time you did a closet purge? Start listing quality, pre-loved gems from your own closet. List everything, even if you think no one will buy it! You never know if someone might be looking for something you no longer love. I do a closet purge every season to see what I can sell, donate, or give away.
2. Shop Sample Sales
Sample sales are one of my favorite places to pick up stock for my Poshmark closet because I know I will find quality garments at a discount price. Brands typically use sample sales to clear out inventory to make room for next season.
If you’re unsure where to find sample sales, sign up to your favorite brands newsletter. Check out the brand’s website to get familiar with the stock and do a price comp on Poshmark so you know roughly how much to spend and what it will sell for.
Tips for navigating sample sales:
- Arrive early.
- Bring cash.
- Be patient.
- Many brands won’t let you try anything on, so it’s helpful to get familiar with the sizing beforehand.
3. Thrift Stores/Op Shops
One of the best things about shopping for source inventory at local thrift stores is that the prices are usually low, so you can make a bigger profit reselling online. Check out your sales report in the Poshmark app, so you can see what brands sell.
Before you buy:
- Check out the price comps for everything.
- Look for quality over quantity.
- Avoid overspending. Remember, you still have to list everything you purchased.
4. Garage Sales | Yard Sales | Estate Sales
Garage sales are another great place to look for clothes to sell on Poshmark. Arrive early, bring change, and be prepared to negotiate. Before you make a purchase, do a quick price comp on Poshmark and Depop to see how much similar items have sold for. Search for sales in your neighborhood or on Facebook groups.
5. Shop the Sales at Department Stores
One of the best ways to boost your Poshmark business sales is to list new items often. Department Stores like Nordstrom Rack always have discounted items. Look for deals on your top-selling brands.
6. Do a Clothing Swap with Friends
Everyone has something in their closet they don’t wear anymore. If you’ve been selling online long enough, you’ll eventually have items you can’t wait to see gone forever. Host a clothing swap with your closest friends, and you could end up with something new for yourself and something to sell in your online closet.
It’s a win-win for everyone who wants to clear out their closet. Pick up different sizes and items you usually wouldn’t sell to add variety to your online closet. You could end up flipping something faster than you usually would.
7. Facebook Marketplace
Join a selling group on Facebook or look for your favorite brands on Marketplace. Most of the people on Marketplace are motivated to sell, so you’ll likely get a good deal.
8. Find Deals On Poshmark or Depop
Look for clothes to sell on Poshmark or Depop. Use the relist feature to make a sale. I’ve been able to resell most of my “accidental purchases” and recoup what I spent, including the cost of shipping.
