Ghanaian online thrift shops have been doing the most on social media and we have a lot of questions for them. Sometimes it’s not their fault but at other times, we believe they can find other options. Here are 5 things we do not get about online Thrift shops in Ghana.
1. Why do they wear the clothes they’re selling?
We get that it’s thrift; it has been worn by someone already but we don’t expect you to wear it too all in the name of showcasing what the dress looks like. Get a mannequin to do that. If you cannot afford that yet, put a white cloth on the ground as a background and take pictures of the outfits on them.
2. Over editing images of the clothes
You know for a fact that in real life, that black top you’re showcasing is very faded but you’ve gone to edit it so that nobody will know. At the end of the day, it will come back to bite you in the ass because people will not trust that what they see is what they’ll get.
3. Expensive prices
Why will a thrift page be competing with a page that sells new clothes when it comes to the prices? Thrift dress GHS 100?? Why? When people talk, you say they’re not the target market but if you’re being honest with yourself, you’ll realise that you’re a cheat.
4. DM for price
Why? For thrifted items? Why would you want to stress yourself out like that? Everyone will DM you and you’ll have to keep answering the same question about the price over and over again when you could have just put it in the caption or on the image? Do you just want people to chat with? 👀
5. Wrong order means different delivery fee
If I asked for US size 8 and you send a UK size 8 over, it will obviously not fit and I’ll have to send it back for you to give me the right size. All this back and forth is extra cost incurred. Pay attention to your items.
