Last Updated on by Bree
Are you looking for places to find items to resell?
Have you recently started a reselling business and have no idea where to find the best items to resell?
Don’t worry, I gat you.
Finding stuff to resell isn’t hard or complicated.
So in this post, I’ll show you 7 Great Places To Find Items To Resell In 2021, and where to sell them.
Let’s dive in.
7 Good Places To Find Items To Resell
1. Your house
The very first place you can find things to resell is your home. Look around for things you don’t use regularly, and may never use anymore.
Then list them on your online store, put a price on it and sell it. Use them to test the waters before spending your money on inventory.
I’m always careful about holding my money down in stock that I may lose interest in.
I hope you understand what I’m talking about.
Let me know in the comments if this makes sense to you.
2. Thrift stores
Another place to find the best items to resell is thrift stores. They usually have a variety of items in good to brand-new condition.
The things you find at thrift stores are usually donated by people who don’t care about reselling their stuff.
And some of these donated items are high-end designer brand names.
So if you are ready to search well, you might find items to resell for double or even triple the amount you paid.
And that’s because thrift stores are very affordable.
This takes us to the next point.
3. Antique stores are great places to find items to resell
Antique stores are a great place to find vintage items you can resell.
Unlike thrift stores, antique stores are more organized, and their prices are usually higher.
So you don’t have to spend so much time searching for things the way you would at Goodwill or other thrift stores.
If you sell vintage fashion on Depop, then antique stores are where you’d find the best items to resell for profit, as they carry rare vintage pieces.
Just remember that you’d be spending more at antique stores than you would at Salvation Army or Goodwill stores.
4. Consignment stores
Another place to buy items for reselling is consignment stores.
A few you can check out are Ross, Gabes, Swap (online), and ThredUp (online).
For Ross and Gabes, you have to shop in-store while Swap and ThredUp are online.
I think ThredUp has in-store shopping too. So you can check their website if there’s one around your area.
You would find items in good to brand-new conditions at consignment stores.
While Ross and Gabes sell a variety of items, Swap and ThredUp are strictly fashion consignments.
5. Yard sale is another place to find things to sell
If yard sales or garage sales happen a lot around your area, you may want to check them out.
That’s one of the places to find great items that people have no space in their homes for anymore.
And yardsales is where you can find the cheapest items for reselling because the seller wants everything gone and get their money fast.
Plus, they don’t plan to take any items back into the house. So you can haggle prices and pay as low as the seller would accept.
Keep your ears and eyes out for the nearest yard sale.
6. Facebook Marketplace
Facebook marketplace is like an online yard sale because these are people within your community selling stuff.
And as far as yard sale goes, prices are quite low on Facebook marketplace, and that makes it a great place to find items to resell.
I recently bought a bookcase for less than $10 on Facebook Marketplace, though I don’t plan to resell it.
What I’m trying to say is that you can find great items in decent condition to resell.
Also, if you join Facebook garage sale groups in your area, you’d be notified whenever a yard sale is on.
7. Friends and families’ homes
If your friends or family want to get rid of items that were gently used, you can take and resell them.
The funny thing about this is that when they notice you make dough from the items, they might ask for commissions. Lol.
Well, that’s up to you.
The plan is to get free items to sell online and make extra money from home.
Places to resell stuff from home
Selling on Mercari is easy, but like other selling apps, it has its issues sellers are not finding funny.
Talk about the recently added Mercari processing fees. But what can we do?

Poshmark is another place to sell things from home. The kinds of items that sell on Poshmark are brand names or high-end fashion pieces.

Also, check out Poshmark versus Mercari to understand the differences and similarities know where you’d rather sell your stuff.
Yes, I remember saying you can buy stuff from the Facebook marketplace to sell.
But you can also refurbish and resell the same items there.
Plus, if you offer to ship, you may find more buyers.
And that’s because most people don’t like to meet and exchange products for cash, for safety concerns.
So if you can ship your products, then you’d be okay selling on Facebook Marketplace.
I didn’t give Depop selling app enough time to understand how it works. But I know lots of people sell there.
Depop is a vintage fashion selling platform, but you can still sell regular clothes.
So if you have eyes for vintage clothes or you just want to sell your clothes, Depop is a good option too.
Most resellers are familiar with eBay.
It is similar to Mercari.
Or maybe Mercari is a wannabe eBay, with the unnecessary fees they add these days.
Anyway, eBay is a great place to resell gently used items because their platform is quite huge.
So your listings would be seen by lots of users, which may result in sales.
The truth is, selling on ThredUp won’t make you as much money as Poshmark, Mercari, or even eBay.
But you can still give it a shot.
