If you follow my fashion posts at all, you know that I love a good deal. And recently I have developed a bit of an addiction to a brand new site that brings new meaning to the world deal.
ThredUP buys and sells gently used clothing. That I knew. But I never really checked out the site because I thought it was all generic kids clothing and sometimes stopping into Target or Old Navy just seems easier. Well. Color me officially wrong.
Not only does ThredUP have an AMAZING selection of boys and girls clothing from all sorts of name brands, they also carry women’s clothing, including top designer brands for a fraction of their original resale price. On top of that they have recently added shoes and handbags to the mix.
I recently placed a pretty big order for Lily who is super picky about what she wears. She is pretty into fashion and knows exactly what she likes and doesn’t like. We scrolled the site together and she picked out a bunch of items she thought she would like. Browsing and checkout was super easy. Shipping took a bit longer than when I order from a retail store, but you can pay extra to have it shipped quicker.
all of this for under $100 (saved over $200 from original price)
I wasn’t sure what quality to expect when the items came. Everything is detailed really well on the site in terms of if there are any tiny stains or fading. They only except high quality items. But I was seriously blown away by the quality of what we received. Every single item she ordered looked brand new. I seriously could not tell that this was used clothing. She was thrilled with her purchases. But if she wasn’t I have 30 days to return anything that didn’t work.
(all this for just over $80, saved around $250)
I was so in love with my experience I just placed my second order. This time for me. I truly need new clothes like I need a hole in the head, but I couldn’t resist some of these deals. They also have a referral program so it pays to tell your friends about your experience so you can earn store credit.
Another great way to earn credit is to send in your own clothes for resale. You can request a bag to send in, or you can use the bag that comes with every order. Simply bag up any clothes (womens, kids, plus size, maternity, handbags and shoes) you have outgrown or no longer wear and ThredUP will take care of the shipping. They meticulously go over every item of clothing and you get a cut of whatever sells. Super easy! You can even donate your profits if you like.
Their whole process is uncomplicated. Poking around ThredUp has become a bit of a new addiction. Check it out for yourself!
