If you’ve already gone through our three previous Level Up classes taught by Depop top sellers Sooki Sooki Vintage and Mini’s World on how to start out on the app, how to optimise your profile’s pictures and listings, and how to package and ship sold items, then you already know quite a lot—but there’s one thing left for you to learn. Now that your Depop shop is thriving and that you’ve found your niche, you’re probably running out of stock, and need more clothes to sell, asap. Don’t panic, we’ve got you. Our two top sellers share everything they know on how and where to find the perfect clothing supplier for your Depop shop!

Where should I start?

Let’s say you’ve almost sold everything you initially wanted to see go on your Depop account. You are now left with two options: one, ‘go big or go home’, meaning you’re ready to start buying wholesale clothing and improve them either by altering them or simply by posting them along with optimised pictures and descriptions. If that’s what you’re ready for, we’ll get back to it in a minute, but first, let’s have a look at your second option.

If you think buying a 25 kilogrammes bag worth of vintage t-shirt for £200 is not the right kind of business for you just yet, then our Depop pro sellers have other ways they recommend when looking for new items without going over the top. Both Sooki Sooki Vintage and Mini’s World often visit charity shops, and the latter also heavily relies on car boot sales.

If you find your perfect supplier, make sure to build a personal relationship with them. This way, they’ll know what items you’re looking for and will put them aside for you. Mini’s World did just that with her supplier, and she ended up buying clothes in bulk from them. “She was like ‘yep, I’ve got a warehouse, let me know when you want to come’.”

Wholesale clothing companies

If you’re looking to buy more items, then wholesale vintage clothing companies may be your best shot. Have a look on eBay and other bulk sale companies to find whichever type of clothing you’re specifically looking for. Check out Bulk Wholesale Company, SYED Vintage, North Vintage Wholesale or just type ‘bulk wholesale vintage’ and the area you live in on Google.
