20.// Why Re-sale Apps Are Actually Alright.

6.12.2016 Margate, Kent, UK

No need to hold the phone, I'm not about to go and unveil anything particularly groundbreaking... but over the last couple of months I've landed on some absolute gold whilst perusing re-sale apps. I'm often found on my phone browsing my saved searches to see if anything pops up that would be worth a bidding battle. It's obviously way easier to get exactly what you want from source and you're not guaranteed to find perfect results as soon as you want them, but with patience the likes of EBay Depop and Grailed can really come up trumps. I put this post together to illustrate how that patience can pay off... 

...To start with, I got this Stussy MFG. coach from a seller on Depop, accompanied by a t-shirt and another jacket, about 6 months ago for an absolute steal... made sweeter by the fact that all it's swing tags were still on it when it landed on my doorstep... It's made from a real light weight Nylon, so I've forced myself to keep it on ice until now. It couldn't be more ideal for the temperamental British summer, thin and water proof, so I'm ready for whatever weather this season decides to bring. I'm also majorly keen on the khaki! 
My second notable result is these Polished leather Common Projects tournament lows that came BNIB along with tags and receipt. I managed to stumble across these and take them home for over one hundred British pounds under retail, which in my eyes was quite perfect. They're now being worn in rather nicely and once again they are a testament to the quality that CP run with.
This all goes to prove that another persons drunk purchase could be your chance to land some gold!

Have you guys picked up any gems on re-sale apps recently? Thanks for reading, James.
