Thrifting: Shopper purchases a £8 shirt from a charity shop but resells it for £135 online | Personal Finance | Finance

One thrift shopper is sharing how he managed to make the equivalent of over £200 from flipping clothes bought from charity shops.

Matt is a content creator on TikTok who shares his experience flipping items to make a sizable amount of money and savings.

Flipping is when someone purchases products, often for a cheap price, to resell them quickly for profit.

As thrifting becomes a popular trend on social media, content creators are breaking down how much they are able to make.

In a recent video, Matt highlighted the five pieces of clothing he bought while thrift shopping with one £8 shirt reselling for £135.

The content creator explained: “Here are five of my favourite items that sold today as a reseller.

“First, I sold these waterproof pants by the brand Footjoy. They sold for $35 (£27.92) on eBay, and I paid $8 (£6.38) for them. They are lightweight to ship.

“Next, is this Nike tech fleece. I sold this hoodie for $57 (£45.47) on Poshmark. I paid $6 (£4.79) for it.

“When you’re out there thrifting, make sure you are looking out for that red tag because they always sell really well.”

His next favourite resale featured in the video was a multicoloured flannel shirt from the brand Needles.

Matt originally paid $11 (£8.78) on his thrifting spree but was able to resell it for a staggering $170 (£135.62) on Grailed.

According to the TikTokker, the rapper ASAP Rocky wore a similar flannel shirt when appearing on stage.

The reseller added: “I also sold these cos mules. They sold for $70 (£55.84) on Grailed but only paid $20 (£15.95) for them.

“With the popularity of Birkenstocks and Suicokes [shoe brands], I knew I had to pick them up.

“Lastly, a brand I find in thrifts all the time is John Elliot. I picked up these shorts for $11 and sold them for $70 on eBay.

“I always pick this brand up if I find it for a good price. So after costs like shipping and fees, I made $258.06 (£205.86).
