Runway Republic Wishlist & Feature
Many of you may know that I'm a huge sucker for unique clothing pieces - I'm not really a fan of high street clones; going out and seeing someone else wearing the same dress as you is just a little mortifying (especially if they wear it better than you!). Now, let me introduce you to Runway Republic - essentially it is an online marketplace for buyers and sellers to network from all over the world.
There is a huge array of amazing clothing and accessories to buy, some of which I've included in my wishlist above! From party dresses to costume jewellery to quirky tops, there is a lot to choose from, and there are sellers from many different countries, so you can find some truly special pieces. There are no buying fees and all payments are safe and securely sent via Paypal. The site is super easy to navigate, and there is a Featured Brands selection, filled with handpicked shops, a couple of my personal favourites being Me&Yu, Dear Lola and Nereus London.
Runway Republic is also a platform to sell clothing! I'm a very creative person, having several little businesses in the past so I have intent to set up my own little shop on there very soon. You can choose from bronze, silver or gold memberships, each with different privileges. Bronze is free so is good for the amateur, but with gold and silver you can access a whole range of different features, such as a blog, custom pages and no selling fees. You can also trial a silver or gold shop for 30 days, so you can see for yourself the benefits. With all packages you have the option of a custom domain name as well as 4 images for each item to really sell the piece, unlimited listings and it's all customisable. My only fault is that I think there should be more shops - that's where you guys come in! Get creative or clean out your wardrobe and set up a shop, then you can make some money to splurge on some pretty vintage items!
What do you guys think of Runway Republic? Would you consider opening your own store or shopping unique, vintage pieces?
