Clothes are Ireland’s most unwanted Christmas gifts
Clothes, shoes and accessories are topping the list of items being listed online by Irish adults in the days after Christmas, according to DoneDeal.ie & Adverts.ie.
The online marketplaces have noticed a surge in these listings since Wednesday with 15% of all ads placed now falling inside the clothing category.
Mobile phone listings have also increased over the last number of days ( accounting for 10% of all ads now) along with Home and Garden items (13%).
In a survey conducted by DoneDeal.ie & Adverts.ie ahead of the Christmas holidays, 21% of Irish adults said they would sell their unwanted Christmas gifts online while one in three of us indicated that sentimental gifts were the most valued of all.
Martin Clancy from DoneDeal.ie said “Over the last two days, particularly yesterday, people are going online and listing items. Tech listings are very big, but clothing is the category with the most activity this year.”
