1. Facebook Groups.
It’s pretty usual nowadays to utilize social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram when doing anything business-related. Gone are the days when Facebook was just a place for storing photos and updating your status. Now, Facebook has a Marketplace section where people can interact with other sellers and buyers with the goal of making a sale. Numerous Facebook groups are available where you can communicate and negotiate for whatever inventory you are looking for. Just be extra careful when dealing with people as the last thing you want to do is get scammed.
2. Thrift Stores.
If you are meticulous and patient enough to rummage through each and every clothing piece in a thrift store, will definitely be able to find high quality or even branded clothing items that you can sell in your online store such as Poshmark or Amazon. Just be sure that there aren't any defects or damages on the clothing items going to buy. It is also important to know when your local thrift store is going on sale so you can score items that are even cheaper than the regular thrift store pricing.
3. Liquidation Wholesale.
Liquidation suppliers offer a wide range of clothing categories that you can choose from. You can even choose the quality of the items that you are going to buy such as shelf pulls which are basically overstock clothing pieces that are pulled out from the department store, or customer returns which are items that were initially purchased by another person but were returned to the department store due to some valid reasons. The only downside when buying liquidation wholesale is that you won't be able to see the actual pieces until they arrive at your doorstep. But good liquidation suppliers must always have a manifest readily available for resellers so you will have an idea on which brands sizes and styles are included in one box.
4. From friends, family, and your own closet.
No better way to source free items rummaging through your own closet and selecting which items you are willing to sell. You can even ask your friends and family if they have available clothing pieces but they are willing to sell and you can negotiate to buy it for a cheaper price. Have you sold items from your closet before? It’s not too late to try!
