Are looking to learn from some experienced thrift shoppers and resellers alike who have turned their passion into a business? If so you’re in the right place! Below are a few of the best books about thrifting on the market for educating yourself on what to sell and also how to properly include the important details in your listings.
Are these books going to tell you exactly what to do to make money flipping clothes? Probably not.
Many of them were actually published years ago before the online reselling market expanded exponentially, beyond selling on eBay. You can get digital copies to read on a Kindle or other e-reader if you prefer.
All of these books about thrifting will provide valuable knowledge and inspiration for what to be looking for when you are out looking for fashion to resell.
You will soon know exactly what to look for in the thrift store. After all, this is one of those gigs that you get better at with time and experience.
Flipping items from thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets, store closeouts, etc. is one of the easiest (and oldest!) ways to make quick money, especially now with so many options for reselling online.
However, finding your niche in reselling items is also really important and can be quite lucrative as you will then become an expert in a specific category of items to resell. You can even master flipping books!
My reselling niche is fashion, including clothing, shoes and accessories. This is why I focus on using Poshmark as my online reselling platform. I love shopping so this is a great way to make money and save money at the same time! It doesn’t even feel like work.
