Take a look into your cupboard. Is it overflowing? How many items do you actually still use? How many clothes that do not fit, do you still have? Which items do you think should be removed from the cupboard?
It is okay to keep all of your old clothes, bags, shoes, and other items in your cupboard. But, when you buy new items, chances are you are not using your old items anymore. Not to mention those items you purchased impulsively, and you actually don’t need them. That is one of the reasons it’s so hard to declutter: you look at those items that you don’t actually need (or want) and remember how much time or energy or cash it cost you to obtain.
The beginning of the year is a perfect time for you to de-clutter your old items. There are two options for you to free some spaces in your cupboard: donate your items to worthy charities (see our list of Yayasan where you can donate your old stuff), or sell them as preloved items.
If the second option is appealing to you, here are the places where you can sell your secondhand stuff, both online and offline:
Carousell is a mobile and online consumer to consumer marketplace for buying and selling new and secondhand goods. The Indonesian Carousell site currently lists and sells a variety of products, from clothing and cosmetics to electronics and luxury items. It is very easy to sell your preloved stuff here: just register as a member of Carousell, upload the photos of the stuff you’re selling and write product description as clear as possible. Other users can find the items you’re selling by inserting certain keywords related to products.
Just like Carousell, Prelo is also a free mobile and online consumer to consumer marketplace for buying and selling goods. However, Prelo is specialized for only secondhand items. The unique thing about selling secondhand goods in Prelo is that users are encouraged to tell the story behind each item they’re selling. The Chatting feature in Prelo also allows you to chat directly with your buyers and ensure the transparency of every transaction.
Jualo is one of the ‘old players’ in the marketplace scene in Indonesia. Here you can sell your secondhand stuff, from ‘small’ items like clothes and electronic but also vehicles and even house! It is also easier to target on customers because Jualo provides a feature where the buyer can search products based on location.
Pink Garage Sale
You can book a table at Pink Garage Sale, and sell your secondhand items at their regular bazaar. Here you can sell your old collection of clothes, perfumes, furniture, paintings, and other household appliances in the bazaar. Pink Garage Sale always opens RSVP regularly for you to register on their bazaars. Check out their website for the schedules.
Pasar Taman Puring
Pasar Taman Puring is a great place if you want to sell your preloved branded bags. It’s important to remember that not all vendors accept preloved bags for you to sell. Look only for branded bags sellers, because they certainly understand about branded and luxury bags. If you want to sell them with higher prices, make sure that the bags are completed with their original certificates and dust bags.
