So there’s a new season starting and you are a good girl/guy, you know how bad it is for a free mind to have this bunch of stuff you never wear. It’s too good to be thrown away and you think you can get a little bit of money out of it. So where and how to sell your clothes in Berlin?
You may need to consider which kind of stuff you have and if you’re willing to sell it yourself or not, which will lead you to several options.
Sell your clothes to 2nd hand and vintage stores in Berlin
There’s many 2nd hand & Vintage store where you can sell your clothes in town. This is the best option for you if you have luxury and/or high-end fashion stuff and if you don’t want to sell it yourself. You can still bring along sophisticated items from Zara or H&M if you have but it’s not worthy if you have only those. (See below for that case). You have to consider that 2nd hand shops will take around 50% commission on a price which is already reduced so … do the math…
Each store has its own style so it’s important that you figured where you have the best chance to sell your garments. At the end, it’s always the people there who will say yes or no. At some places, you can just drop by the store with your bag but it’s better to get in touch before, by phone or email. First, some shops work only with an appointment but even for the others, you might pop in a busy moment or the shop has temporarily stopped to buy because they have too much stuff already.
The commission they take is usually between 40% and 50% and they warn you when an item has been sold. It’s quite obvious but let’s remind you that your clothes should be cleaned, in good shape and it’s always a bit annoying if you removed the brand label for some scratchy reasons.
