A Breakdown of Every App to Buy and Sell Used Stuff

Barely five years ago, finding sites and apps to buy and sell used stuff was a fairly limited proposition. You had the big guys (eBay), the new-frontier tech-meets-fashion players (Poshmark), and the luxury destinations for high-end designer pieces (The RealReal.) Cut to 2022, andit seems as if consumers have hundreds of options—many of which are hyper-specialized, making it overwhelming to navigate them.

I knew that particular community was probably my best bet for turning the pile of XXL Comfort Colors T-shirts and Nike running shorts in the corner of my room into cash—ditto for the selection of beat-up miniskirts, practically unworn Doc Martens boots, and fuzzy bags that aligned with what the TikTok crowd dominating the app was desperate for.
