So. You’ve trawled our New In page for some stand out products, you’ve set up some targeted marketing and you’re ready to sell. If you don’t have a brick and mortar store or a site, though, where can you go to make some cash? How can you find places to sell clothes?
Sell Clothes at the Local Market
Town markets used to be a thriving setting for selling clothing. The era of the bustling town market might have since past, but obtaining a stall on a temporary basis for cheap is easier and cheaper now than ever. Choose your town wisely, and you can get some decent footfall past your stall. We wouldn’t recommend this on a permanent basis but if you’ve got products to shift and not a lot of options, it’s definitely worth a shot.
Sell Clothes on eBay
The town market didn’t drop in popularity for no reason – eBay superceded the twee English market as the efficient, convenient and superior modern cousin. Garnering a reputation on eBay is one of the best moves you can make if you plan on selling clothes long term. It can be hard work, but if you provide satisfactory products with great customer service, you can watch the positive feedback roll in and your online business take-off.
Set Up Your Own Website
Of course, selling on eBay will get you exposure and a platform for your products, but it’s always worth establishing a well-run, well marketed dedicated website for returning customers and new ones alike. Any number of build-a-website services offer fantastic eCommerce packages these days – a quick Google and a few clicks is all it really takes to get your own rudimentary website running. Squarespace and GoDaddy are good places to start.
We’re upgrading the site this weekend (from Friday 13th July). We expect the update to be completed by the following Monday (16th July).
It’s possible that the site may experience technical difficulties during this period.
Thank you for your understanding and patience in the event that we run into any issues during the update.

To make sure you make the best of the sunshine, you need to think about how your website is reflecting what’s going on outdoors!

Make sure your banner design is Bold and Bright
Nothing evokes a more summery feeling that a bit of vibrancy; saturated hues and light tones evoke a bright summers day, while pinks and blues align with common fashion colors associated with summer.
Make sure white is prevalent in your summery design so that it adds to the airy, light and happy feel.
