De­signer re­sale web­sites can of­fer a thrill akin to that suc­cess­ful char­ity-shop or vin­tage -store vi sit, al­low­ing you to sit in the com­fort of your own home surf­ing the net, look­ing for hid­den gems. And two of the lead­ing re­sale sites – Ves­ti­aire Col­lec­tive and Re­belle – are now giv­ing to char­ity, too.

Ves­ti­aire Col­lec­tive has part­nered with model Toni Garrn to host her third ‘char­ity flea mar­ket’. Garrn has rus­tled to­gether 100 pieces from model chums – in­clud­ing Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bünd­chen and Jour­dan Dunn – which will go on sale on the site on 2 Novem­ber. Wor­ried that you’re not quite of su­per­model pro­por­tions? Panic not. Ves­ti­aire Col­lec­tive will also host a pop-up mar­ket in Lon­don between 10 and 12 Novem­ber, sell­ing pre-owned pieces do­nated by Garrn and friends, as well as pieces from brands that wanted to sup­port the cam­paign. One hun­dred per cent of the pro­ceeds from both sales will go to the Toni Garrn Foun­da­tion, which sup­ports e duca­tion for girls in Zim­babwe, work­ing to pro­vide them with a safe learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment (ves­tiarec­ol­lec­tive.com).

Mean­while, if you are sell­ing rather than buy­ing, Re­belle now has a char­i­ta­ble-do­na­tion el­e­ment built into its site. Sim­ply check the box, de­cide on what percentage of the sale you’d like to do­nate and wait for that happy shop­per to come along. The site will also waive its com­mis­sion for all char­i­ta­ble sales (re­belle.com).
