Shpock – The flea market at your fingertips!


Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t get much better than losing an afternoon wandering round a vintage fair or market, but as adulthood is slowly creeping up on me I find I have increasingly less afternoons to spare. So naturally I was very interested (not to mention excited) when I heard about the fairly new app Shpock – ‘The boot sale app in your pocket’. This amazing app allows you to float through a world of pre-loved items whether you are on the train or scrolling through your phone at 4am with one eye open.

Since launching in March 2014, Shpock has helped 1 million people in the UK alone give their unwanted items a new home – everyone’s a winner! You can view items in your local area and chat with sellers instantly to agree a price or collection.

Listing an item takes less than 30 seconds

But it’s not all about buying; listing an item is also simple! All you have to do is take a picture of what you’re selling, write a little bit about it and it becomes instantly visible to Shpock users in your area! I’m finding it very useful after having a huge clear out of clothes this summer. A recent study has shown the average British household hordes a £517 worth of stuff* – that could be used for a holiday, a whole new wardrobe or this months rent?! 
My favourite feature of this app has to be its free listing – yes you heard correctly, Shpock does not charge you at all – the app is free, selling is free and listing is free! Talking about free, the app also has a ‘Free Stuff’ section!

Find vintage gems in your area

 So if you need to earn some cash or just love vintage I would definitely recommend Shpock – it’s available on the App store and Google Play!
