I Make 50k A Year Selling Vintage Clothes | How To Get Rich

i make up to two grand a week on depop

and this is how i do it

this year i can earn up to 50k i source

the best of the best

vintage clothes rafi's closet has 183

000 followers making money is really

addictive

today i'm looking for any vintage gems

anything that i can kind of uh rework

i've already picked out it's really

beautiful i love the pattern another

really nice shirt that would look really

good

with high-waisted jeans maybe yes

love it love it the way i would describe

depop it's

like instagram and ebay brought together

you list your item

you interact with your followers either

you sell it for the full price or you do

an offer for them this i'd usually sell

for around 22. the jumpers i sell

or vests i sell for like 25 or 22.

like that's 2.7 kilo so that is

4 pounds 40 quid all right cheers i

bought this for 40

um and i'll probably sell it for about

400.

i was starting initially to clear my

closet and also

to make a little bit of cash on the side

i actually realised i could earn

a decent amount of money from it i'm

really excited

about these three pieces it's a brand

new style i have a feeling that it will

be

really popular i think the breakthrough

moment

was when i was going meeting other

sellers who were doing this full-time as

a business

so i started buying in more stock

listing on a regular basis

in the second year there was about a

thousand followers a week

coming in onto the shop this jumper here

has the tiniest hole i've got white

thread and i can

stitch that up on a weekly basis we can

make from anything from 70 to 120 sales

it's quite addictive if you start making

money out of it

right now i'm just going to quickly hand

stitch this

hole you can't really tell at all that

it's had a hole in it

so that's perfectly fine now

love depop dramas i've seen one where

can you wear these shoes quite well and

i'll give you an extra 60 pounds and i'm

like

no no so i'm going to turn this jumper

into

a jumper vest jumper vests are just

selling really quickly

it's really really simple

with pricing rework stuff it totally

depends what it is and the labor that's

gone into it

but if it's a piece that's actually

taken a day or a few days

it could be anything from 50 to 100. it

totally depends on the actual piece

i'll put this jewelry on to wear with

the clothes and the photographs and kind

of just sell

the items and show people how they can

style it themselves

so i like to spend my earnings either on

travel which is really good to be able

to explore markets

i like to buy vintage designer pieces

the experiences um anything that i can

do with my mates

so what i'll do now is i'll just

find a space in the garden with a good

backdrop

and take some photos

[Music]

i might take like six eight photos

just to make sure i've got the right

angle the photography is

actually one of the main parts of

selling because if it's not photographed

well

your customers can't really get the

value for it

get them in the shop it's really

exciting it's nice to be able to get

them out to people

incredible quality um model size

10 height five foot six instant buyers

on

and then just 22 pounds and then

post listing and it will

yeah so that's on now that's live

with v's closet i'm looking to expand it

into

getting more independent sellers

independent creatives involved and

actually

giving a platform to people um that want

to

make and sell just create a store

full of vintage and sustainable pieces

and then this is the one i reworked

so it'll be nice to see how quick that

sells

i think we're in for a good night

because we've already got some good

likes coming in

when i saw an item i feel excited and

happy

it's a really good feeling
