The Best Online Thrift Stores for Quarantine

At this point many of us have been wearing the same rotation of clothes for 8 weeks.


With summer coming up, most of us would be heading out to our neighborhood thrift shops to stock up on new gear for the warmer months. But with the economy at a standstill, chances are vintage thrift stores are going to be some of the last places to open up shop. Luckily, there remain hundreds of online thrift stores that can scratch this itch. Sure, shipping may be slightly delayed, and there is nothing like the instant satisfaction of buying new digs in-house, but beggars can't be choosers right now. Here are some of the best online thrift stores.

Depop

Depop

PIG magazine creator Simon Beckerman bred this buying and selling app for Gen Z-ers to help them discover unique clothes. The homepage is easy to navigate, and it's super easy to meet sellers or become a seller yourself. With a highly detailed search system, Depop offers a slew of new and used clothing and a variety of affordable prices. Not to mention, every purchase is covered with buyers insurance.

Treasures of NYC

Treasures of NYC

This NYC-based retailer is for those with a distinctive vintage flair. Specializing in curated luxury vintage, Treasures of NYC is made for the obscenely fashionable. With a heavy focus on high-end accessories, like sunglasses, jewelry and vintage caps, the app is constantly updated with new incoming pieces. Follow their Instagram page to help keep up on Treasure's abundance, because it can get a bit overwhelming.

ThredUp

ThredUp

Curated mostly for girls, ThredUp is a little more for sellers then buyers, but in turn can still be insanely rewarding. The website lists specific items it's looking for, and users send in items that match ThredUp's description. If the qualifications are met, the items are accepted for re-sale and ThredUp pays the sender in cash or store credit. The store credit is really excellent at offering great discounts of ThredUp's stuff. Also, to promote sustainable shopping, ThredUp launched ReMade to help incentivize shoppers to resell. If you purchase an item, and choose to resell your item, then you're guaranteed 40 percent of what you paid for it.

ASOS Marketplace

ASOS Marketplace

ASOS is already a highly-esteemed brand. Known for its great prices and fast shipping, the brand has actually also had a steady selection second-hand clothes. ASOS has a hand-picked team of fashion pros that recommend season trends for vintage connoisseurs, with all brand names at affordable prices.

Etsy

Etsy

Etsy has been and remains one of the best sites out there for vintage shopping. The Cali-based site offers a wide range of eclectic goods that include statement handbags, earrings and plenty of clothing. Etsy products sell out fast though, so be sure to grab something when you see it!

April 18 came and your taxes were not ready. So you filed a tax extension. Well, you should file an extension, if you haven't already. Form 4868 is one of easier tax forms to fill out and it will give you an extra six months to get your taxes together. Everyone is eligible for a tax extension. The extension gives you until October 17 to file your taxes, but keep in mind if you owe the IRS money; it is still due April 18. Once you've filed an extension, what happens next?
