Shopping can be draining, All that people interaction and walking and stuff. Sometimes you just feel like lying on your bed and binge watching a show on Netflix.
(minus the partner in this picture, most of us are forever alone😭)
Fortunately the peoples cries of wanting to shop in their pajamas was heard faster than God heard the cries of the Hebrew slaves (just kidding). Thus online shopping was born! We could now dive into consumerism without having to step a foot outside!
I love online shopping, its retail therapy without having to be around people, don’t get me wrong I love people, but sometimes I just need a break from you guys. So online shopping is perfect! With the exception of one thing: the cost. High prices of retail stores don’t go away just because you didn’t have to spend money on gas. In fact you are more likely to click on and buy that higher priced item in lieu of the reasonably priced one that you initially selected.
Well I’m a baddie on a budget and don’t have the funds to be making it rain in online retail shops.
So you can imagine how pumped I was when I discovered that some thrift stores were online! It was a dream come true. So I want to share my found treasure with you guys and share with you the best online thrift stores!

I had absolutely no idea that Goodwill had an online marketplace but it does! I was ECSTATIC to find this out! Online it offers an auction style buying service in which mot bid times only last for 24 hours! There is such a wide array of items you can find here from wedding dresses to saxophones. I for one know that I’m about to get something from here.
I recently discovered ThredUp and was immediately impressed by how professional the site design appeared. I also love how easy the site is to use and that it does not feel as if you are shopping online at a thrift store but at like H&M or something, you know? They offer a wide selection and you can search for a specific brand. Prices are definitely less than what you would pay for the item if brought new but they are higher than what you would probably pay at a traditional thrift store.
It is the perfect combination of one of a kind, pre-owned, and low cost with fashionable. I did not even know that it existed until a few days ago but now I am glad that I found it. Asos marketplace offers lower cost items from independent designers and vintage stores around the globe. So you can honestly say you got your jacket from Thailand even though you did;t actually go to Thailand.
This online thrift store is unique in that it tells you the exact location where your item is coming from. It also has very fast shipping! It only took me 3 days to get my items from them!
Formerly known as Once in a Blue Moon Online Thrift and Consignment Store the newly named gone tomorrow has been operating since 2002! It offers slightly used clothing in addition to home goods. Personally I think they are best at home goods and prefer shopping for knickknacks like the one above from them.
The self described “largest online consignment shop” this store offers games and toys in addition to clothes. This website had all thee 90’s toys like Yu-gi-oh cards and Gameboys, it was soon nostalgic. I think every 90s kid will spend their entire paycheck on this thrift store.
