second-hand shopping with Barter Bay

Ok let’s be honest, Pinterest is addicting! How many times have you pinned away only to realize it’s an hour later and you’ve planned rooms for a house you don’t yet own, jumped into the deep end with recipes to try, and found enough outfits to last you until next year? Well now I’ve got a little something to help you with that Pinterest addiction and help you score some great finds for less: meet Barter Bay a new fun (and safe) second-hand shopping experience!

When it comes time to find a unique item at a great price, second-hand shopping is a great option.

You save money by not buying brand new, you keep something out of the landfill (yay for being eco-friendly!), and you help someone else declutter a little- and vice-versa if you have something you no longer need/ want. 

Whether you want to buy, sell, or trade, Barter Bay is a safe online option.

With a variety of categories, it’s a great place to find something you need: home, clothes, electronics, and plants and garden are just a few. This also makes it simple for you if you have an item you would like to sell or possibly trade. To give you an idea of the selection already up for grabs on the site, I’ve put together 3 outfits I found on Pinterest and paired them with items available on their website. If you want to learn more about Barter Bay and how it works, find more info after the images below.
