Used Clothing | Fashion Recycling Is All The Rage
Selling used clothing or slightly used clothing online is so retro and so cool. It’s like being fashion-forward and environmentally conscious all at the same time. And, when you’re buying and selling used clothing online is just like having a garage sale or going to a second hand store. You can make some quick cash or find some hidden little gems.
Many people go through their closets once or twice a year, sometimes more. Closet clean outs are the perfect time to be realistic about that smaller size you may never get back into. Or perhaps you want to get rid of the larger size you don’t want to get back into. Additional items you may want to sell include shoes, hand bags, jewelry, etc. Here are a few tips to consider when selling used clothing and accessories:
- Check the Condition – Examine each piece of used clothing to make sure that it’s in good enough condition to sell. Typically, that means no stains, holes, tears, etc. What would you want to buy from someone else?
- Wash Them Up – Once you have the used clothing you want to sell, make sure you wash them so they are fresh and clean. It may seem odd, but using a non-scented clothes soap is best because you never know if the buyer might have a perfume allergy. You want your used clothing to arrive to the buyer in the best condition possible.
- Tell Us About It – When you’re clothes are ready to be uploaded, take lots of pictures. Then provide as much detail as you can about each piece. Include things like measurements, size, color, material, brand, and how old it is. Maybe there is a fun and unique story behind what you’re selling. Is it vintage? One-of-a-kind? Did you get it at Disneyland and they just don’t sell that t-shirt anymore?
