“Another thing, be careful with the terms that you use, so don’t use terms like ‘Y2K' [Year 2000] or Vintage, because people who are using those words in the descriptions are usually those that are re-selling things for a higher value, so avoid terms like that.
“Another thing with terminology is that you must remember that people will describe things differently to you, so if you want a maxi skirt, search ‘maxi skirt’ but also ‘long skirt’ as well – think about different things like that.

“I’ll show you how I buy things from there – this is for if you are looking for a general item, say a grey blazer or a green jumper.
“You want to make your search as specific as you can, without excluding items that may be of interest to you – so really utilise the filters on there.
“I’ve put the size and the price point but I’ve not put that in the description, as if you do that, you might exclude items – they may not put these details in the description.
“Then at all times I have things that I’m searching for – next to it will be a number, here it is +4 – that’s how many times a new item has come up since the last time I searched.
“Now this is so useful as it’s going to minimise the amount of time you are scrolling.
“The best items I bought on Vinted have been uploaded in the last hour or the past two hours, as other people haven’t seen them yet.
“I’d really recommend having a list of items that you’re searching for and then you can see the plus button and how many and go on and see what has come on since the last time you searched”.
Nina’s video has clearly impressed many, as at the time of writing, in just two days, it has quickly racked up 19.4k views.
It has 1,668 likes, 32 comments and 12 shares.
One person said: “YESSS I needed this so baddddd”.
