We know what you’re thinking. Op shops are only good for scungy cast-offs reeking of mothballs and your grandfather’s cologne, right? Wrong. Online store The OpMarket is a new kind of Opshopping experience.
Not only can you donate your pre loved threads to The OpMarket to make a quick buck, or designate a charity to receive the funds from your sold items, but you can shop from a range of slick menswear brands with free shipping on orders of $150 and a 14-day return policy.
In fact, if shopping is on your agenda, The OpMarket’s menswear offering is full of hidden gems. Right now you can snap up a chunky camel knit from Acne for a cool $40, a black Yohji Yamamoto button-up for only $45 or a Zegna trench for just $350. Not bad if you’re penny-pinching.
The best part about The OpMarket, however, has to be the ease in which you can get rid of your unwanted items. There’s no doubt that getting rid of old clothes is a hassle to say the least. “Not only is there an issue around getting equipment to take the right kind of photo or sitting down to list every garment online, it is also difficult to organise stalls at market places and often inconvenient to drop off at charities. The OpMarket offers a service that completely takes the headache out the process.”
The OpMarket picks up, photographs, lists and sells all of the items on your behalf, with funds either donated to charity or sold on consignment. ALL FOR FREE.
So whether you’re craving some good karma and want to donate to a good cause, or you’re just low on cash, The OpMarket is the lazy man’s solution to getting rid of his old crap. Check out the video below and the OpMarket website for more.
