Vinted is the app for vinted.com – a site that lets women post their old clothes for sale, trade, or giveaways and lets them get clothes from others at great, thrift store-ranged prices. I found it by accident, and now it’s turned into an incredible obsession.

IMG_4090Buying an awesome top.As someone who spends a lot of time browsing around thrift stores, Vinted is great for being able to do that even from bed. When I first signed up for my account, the service gave me a coupon for $10 toward anything I wanted (this coupon is given to all new users). This did NOT last long. I found dozens of tops, skirts, shoes, and all other things that were just perfect for me. In the time I’ve had it I’ve purchased 11 things, traded with one girl, and sold a few of my older/poorer fitting clothes.

The buying went great. Payments are handled in-house and only given to the seller when you verify that everything is as expected. When selling, the service charges a set shipping rate set up with USPS and gives you a label to print with a tracking number – no muss, no fuss. My only complaint is that the app won’t let you copy and paste the tracking number, so it’s a pain to add it to a tracking app (I use Posted).

vinted2vinted1One of the best features is that Vinted lets you set defaults for the main item feed. I’m really tiny, so I have it set to show me only the smallest sizes, and my specific range of shoe sizes. This saves users from getting really excited about a find, only to learn it’s nowhere close to something they’d fit in.

Vinted is a really great way to find new clothes and get rid of your old ones. It’s not just a great app; it’s a brand new addiction. And if you’re browsing around, please check my stuff out: theeternal.
