I came across everything5pounds.com back in 2010 when I was a university student on a budget at the time. Since then, about 80% of my wardrobe is from everything5pounds.com. I still to this day have items that are still wearable after so many years from that site so I thought I would do a review in case some of you are still sceptical.
About the company:
Everything5pounds.com launched in 2010 and they are a website that sells everything for £5. They sell ex-branded high-street items i.e overstock as well as unbranded items bought directly from manufacturers and their stock tends to sell out very fast due to the price.
Most items from ex-highstreet stores does have the labels removed or defaced to prevent identification of the brands. I have however bought items from there that were from retailers such as Asos, RiverIsland, Boohoo, Misguided, Topshop, Zara, Primark and Marks & Spencer to name a few. Aside from the labels being defaced/cut off, the items are pretty much new and of good quality.
My Hauls and Review Videos:
Pros of Shopping on Everything5Pounds.com:
Bargain: How often do you buy a brand new pair of shoes for £5? Every time on everything5pounds.com. The clothes and accessories that you get are such a bargain and of good value.
Big Discounts: If there is a trendy item that has caught your eye, I would highly recommend that you check Everything5pounds.com first before buying it full price. I bought a coat for £5 once that was still in season and in stores which retailed for £60, you can't even make that big of a save during the sales.
Up-to-date Stock: One thing I love about this site is that they update their stock every single day. As their new ins tends to sells out so quickly, sometimes within a couple of hours, it only makes sense that they also have to update it daily as well which means that you are guaranteed to always find up-to-date stylish trendy items for cheap.
Easy Shopping Experience: their website is easy to navigate and the customer reviews on the items are also useful when you are not sure whether or not to buy an item. The refund process is also quick and easy and relatively painless.
Cons of Shopping on Everything5Pounds.com:
Stock Availability: although they update their stock daily, it can be very limited and also sells out very quickly due to high demand.
Postage: the postage prices can sometimes really make you reconsider your purchases. Postage is calculated by weight therefore if you are buying things like shoes and coats, you can end up paying a little bit more than you would like.
Their returns are also not free therefore it's always good to buy items that you are sure of and that you intend to keep.
I have been a longtime customer and honestly I have never had any issues that would warrant me to not recommend them. The pros definitely outweigh the cons in my opinion. Everything5pounds.com offers you a cheap and easy way to build/update your wardrobe with the same/similar items as those you would find in your favourite high-street stores.
