There are two online sources that I use consistently for purchases of second-hand menswear. eBay (naturally) and Poshmark. Both are great sources for high-quality second-hand clothing for men and women. But it must be said that some of the best bargains I have discovered to date have been on Poshmark. The stylish full-length cotton overcoat (sporting a suede collar) shown below was purchased on Poshmark.com for the bargain price of $10.00. Exceptional bargains like this are what makes Poshmark.com the land of hidden thrift treasures! In this Poshmark review, I share why I think frugal shoppers should take a good look at what this online marketplace has to offer.
What Makes Poshmark Special
Poshmark.com markets itself as a fast and easy way to sell clothes that are cluttering up your closet. It is so easy to list items for sale that you can stand in front of your closet with a smartphone and list an item every 60 seconds. It does not demand the same level of detail in item descriptions as eBay does. Plus, a buyer can make an offer at a lower price on any item listed. Haggling is encouraged. This makes Poshmark feel more like an online yard sale when compared to eBay which behaves more like a commercial marketplace.
If you know how to spot quality, you can find amazing menswear bargains on Poshmark.com!
If you are a well-informed buyer who can spot ‘diamonds in the rough’ then you need to check out Poshmark. Often, you will come across amazing bargains if you know the true value of what you’re looking at. If you know your menswear clothing brands, come to Poshmark with an eagle-eye and you will find hidden second-hand gems!
Poshmark consistently delivers some of the best online second-hand menswear bargains I have purchased to date. For example, the sportscoat featured above was purchased by me recently on Poshmark. It is made in Italy of a luxurious wool and cashmere blend fabric. If new, it would retail for over $500.00. Guess what I paid for it? Only $10.00 (plus $6.99 shipping costs)!
The Jos. A. Bank suit shown above was purchased on Poshmark.com for $22.00. The cotton shawl cardigan shown below was purchased on Poshmark for only $5.00 plus shipping. Generally, you can find lower prices than would be offered on eBay for comparable items. USPS Priority shipping costs are generally around $7.00 for most items.
In order to discover second-hand ‘diamonds,’ like these, you will need to patiently browse Poshmark listing with the ability to look beyond unimpressive photos and condensed descriptions. It’s like uncovering bargain-priced treasures at a local yard sale! I have a number of exceptional items in my wardrobe including suits, shoes, and sport coats that were purchased for rock-bottom prices on Poshmark.
The more informed you are as a buyer, the greater the rewards. I highly recommend Poshmark for the value-minded online thrift shopper!
