I am excited to share something really cool with all of you today! I have recently partnered with ThredUp– the largest second hand online clothing store. They have stream lined the entire process of selling and buying high quality second hand clothing. There are two parts of their business: You can sell and you can purchase. Purchasing is as easy as buying from any retailer’s website. You simply go to their site: ThredUp and browse through their inventory. Each item is triple checked for signs of wear and that zippers zip, buttons button, etc. before they are steamed and photographed for the online site. The website has the same capabilities of other retailers in which you can filter on brands, sizes, color, categories, etc. Once you find some goodies you simply add to your cart and enter your payment information. This is the process I took for the above seersucker dress! I was so pleased once I received my package- this is like a brand new dress. There isn’t any signs of wear, it smells fresh and is exactly as how it was described when I looked at it online!
Now you can also sell your clothes on their website. The process begins with ordering a “Clean Out Kit” here. ThredUp sends you this massive plastic bag with a prepaid shipping label (free, $10 will later be deducted from what you earn) and you fill it with in season trendy items that are stain free and are in great shape. You then drop it off at the post office and that is it! ThredUp will then sort through your items and those that are in good shape will then be photographed and put online. Once your item is purchased you will then make a commission on it! The website even lets you guesstimate what each item’s earnings would be. Check that out here. Once my items make it to the website, I’ll update you on the actual selling experience!
Another thing I really like about this company is their mission statement: “We want to leave the planet sustainable for the next generation–saving water, recycling, reusing items and donating to good causes”. Any of your items that do not sell, they donate to different charities who can use your once loved items!
ThredUp is certainly a company I will support over and over again! If you are like me, you have a ton of clothing that you probably don’t wear season after season. Take the time to go through your closets and send your items in to make a little extra! Whatever doesn’t make the cut, you know it’s going to a good cause!
