Where to Sell Used Clothes
Want to make some extra cash and clear out your closet? Selling gently used clothes can bring in some nice pocket money. Here are the top places to consider when selling your preloved wardrobe.
There are a range of online markets, some of which are dedicated to buying and selling secondhand clothing, while others allow you to set up a shop and sell your own items. Some of the top online options include:
- eBay: With the largest audience, eBay is a great option for selling used clothes quickly. Simply take photos of the items and write a good description to make them stand out.
- Poshmark: This online marketplace is perfect for selling designer and high-end items. It does require a listing fee of $2.95 for items under $15.
- Vinted: Create a shop on this site to easily sell any size clothing, accessories and shoes.
- Mercari: Find success on this marketplace by taking good photos and writing informative descriptions.
Head to your local thrift store and see if they will buy directly from you. Some stores pay in cash, while others provide store credit. This could be a great option if you know what kind of products they are looking for.
High end consignment stores are a great option for designer and high value items. These stores take a percentage of the sale instead of a fee and so can provide a much greater return. Simply research the stores in your area and see if they are accepting used clothes.
For clothing, a good old-fashioned garage sale is hard to beat. Group together a few neighbours and get a sunny day picked out. Collect all of your clothes (and other items) and set them up neatly in your front yard. Make sure to advertise in the newspaper, as well as around your neighbourhood, to attract a crowd.
Selling used clothes can be a great way to make some extra cash and clear out your wardrobe. Consider the options above when looking to make a sale. Good luck!
