What Your City is Known For Buying on the Resale Market

Do you align?

Map of Popular Resale Products

As a New Yorker, I like to think that diversity of interests abounds in my city. But in attempting to separate ourselves from other locales, certain uniformities often emerge, begging the question: are we different in the same way? Obviously, I’m generalizing here, but sometimes it can be comforting to know that like-minded individuals flock to the same regions. And let’s not forgo environmental factors—weather, lifestyle, etc., etc.—which streamline our manner of dressing. The RealReal’s Annual Resale Report revealed that cities’ residents are more alike than we think. We’ve asked them to pull stats across a range of the United States’ most populous cities. The results are highly satisfying—it’s like reading your latest horoscope or decoding your assigned enneagram.
