We’re all for having a “reduce, reuse, recycle” mindset, but you don’t have to sell those beat-up sneakers covered in dirt. I mean, maybe someone will buy them, but is that really worth it for anyone involved?
These people below shared some eye-opening finds they discovered while browsing for clothes online. They’re browsing an app meant for reselling clothes, which is fine for those cleaning out their closets. However, the site has quite a few issues. There’s apparently a rampant problem with sellers buying up cheap clothes from Shein or dropshipping companies, and reselling them for hundreds. Others will buy clothes that are currently on sale, and mark them up while claiming they’re “vintage.”
Then, there are the people below, who either didn’t understand what the site was for (I’m looking at you, olive oil seller) or didn’t think about what exactly they were selling (grimy sneaker seller, this is about you). You can tell some folks just cleaned their rooms out and were like, “Oh, a pair of socks, well I’ll just list that for $3.25 on my page, it couldn’t hurt.” No one wants your grimy clothing! When your socks have lost their elastic and are ready for the trash, you use the clean socks to dust your home with, and then you throw them away after this one last use (as is tradition in my family, though maybe this is weird and I’m the only one who does it. At least I’m not selling them!).
