Too old for Depop? We don’t think so. Check out these top sellers.

If eBay had a cool, more streamlined and quicker witted younger sister, Depop would be it. Aimed at the youth market, since its launch in 2011, a new generation of teen and twenty-something digital natives has engaged with this platform as THE place to buy and sell second-hand and vintage fashion and design with over 80 per cent of its 9 million users aged under 25.

But don’t assume that its low-key format and abundance of crop tops mean that it won’t appeal to older shoppers. Far from it. From rare vintage fashion to once-worn contemporary designs and authentic interior design pieces, Depop is the place to shop – even if you aren’t a millennial.

Here are some of our favourites.

This relatively undiscovered Depop gem sells 100% authentic Ray Ban sunglasses, all with original case, cleaning cloth and manual, at around half the original price. There are some seriously cool sunnies here. Even better, the shop is UK-based.
