Given how huge reselling has become, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of avenues to choose from when it comes to figuring out where you will be selling your clothes. There isn’t necessarily a right or wrong way to do this part. It all depends on personal preference. Some people prefer sites like Grailed because you can essentially sell any type of clothing there. Whether it’s an ultra rare Raf Simons coat worth thousands of dollars or an old T-shirt you think you can make $20 on, it can be listed. The chat feature makes it easy to communicate with buyers. Just be mindful of the 9 percent commission that Grailed will take from every sale. 

Sites like StockX are useful when trying to sell brand-new streetwear or sneakers that are in high demand. For instance, you may have an easy time flipping a True Religion x Supreme jacket that just came out, but that random Stüssy T-shirt from a couple of months ago probably won’t make sense here. StockX has its own set of commission fees that start at 10 percent and can be lowered to as little as 8 percent if you accumulate 250 sales or $30,000 worth of sales in a quarterly span. Sites like eBay, Depop, Etsy, and more are also good platforms. Each has its pros and cons, so do some experimenting before settling on one. 

In-person sales are another alternative. Certain sellers prefer to flip their items locally. Face to face meetups are a good way to avoid fees and build up a local following. Just make sure you are meeting up in a safe area like a mall to do any in-person transactions. Eventually, selling locally can even lead to a storefront of your own if that’s a goal of yours. Vernacchio has been able to grow from setting up racks for customers to shop in his apartment to a brick-and-mortar location, Past to Present, that opened last year in Barrington, New Jersey. “I love in-store stuff,” he tells Complex. “In my opinion, in order to shop vintage or whatever else, you want to be able to feel it and touch it, have somebody who will tell you the history behind it.” Still, he acknowledges the importance of an online presence in some capacity.

“There’s no closing your website unless you don’t have any inventory listed. I literally make money in my sleep. People across the country, across the world, are able to see my product,” he says. “I recommend you have an online store, no matter what, or some type of website where someone can access your product whenever they want.”
