Don’t Just Make Money, Save Money
We live in a very commercial world and it’s easy to end up with loads of stuff that you don’t actually need. Sometimes you buy things you only use for a while such as maternity clothes or a Moses basket. Other times you may receive gifts which perhaps you’re not too keen on… This means there is loads of stuff on Preloved that is basically brand new, but available much cheaper than in-store.
Preloved Vs eBay
Preloved has a much friendlier vibe than eBay. It’s great for finding things locally which you can pick up yourself, rather than forking out for postage (especially big items).
eBay has become just as much about new stuff than old, and sometimes it’s nice to find things with a bit of history behind them. Older items often have much more attention to detail or interesting stories behind them. Often they just need a lick of paint or a part replacing. Those sorts of things can’t be bought in the supermarket!
There is even a Freeloved section where members are giving stuff away for free! This is often due to a change in circumstances and the item is no longer wanted, but it would be a waste for it to go in the bin.
