The Ultimate List of Online Thrift and Secondhand Stores in Canada and US

Why spend money and emissions travelling from store to store when you can now shop secondhand direct online? While I am all about supporting your local thrift stores and circulating goods within your local economy if there is a specific item you are after this might be a better option for you. There are so many online stores and thrifting marketplaces making it super easy and accessible to find exactly what you are looking for. Many allow you to search by style, colour, size, and fit; while others are suited to a specific customer.

Today I am sharing with you a big list of amazing online thrift options from small business eCommerce shops to larger-scale marketplaces. I’ve divided it up based on country of origin for those who are wanting to support those local to them, however, I’ve included details on where they ship to under each.

If you are new to second-hand shopping and need some tips on how to make sure you end up with the things you actually need instead of buying impulsively, check out my guide to thrifting for some of my best tips. Not all of them apply to online shopping but my process and list-making habits can still really help.
