You can’t argue with the numbers quoted by “thread up,” a leader in the resale industry in resale and consignment. Second-hand apparel is becoming a global phenomenon, and it’s expected to grow by 127% by 2026. The global secondhand apparel market will grow three times faster than that of the traditional apparel market overall in 2021. The resale industry saw an unprecedented 21% increase and is expected to double by 2026 to 82,000,000,000. People realize the value of a dollar, especially now with all the talk of a recession. They want to stretch it further, and they don’t want to compromise on style or quality.
