Selling your pre-owned clothes can a great way to make some extra money and clear out space in your closet. However, getting rid of your old togs can be a bit more challenging than you might suspect at first. After all, you aren’t selling just any used consumer good, but something that’s been in constant contact with your body. Even if it’s been given a basic washed, your pretty old dress may not have the panache it once possessed. Then, there’s the issue of where to sell your clothes. Fortunately, these are problems which can be easily remedied with just a little bit of knowledge and effort.
Clothes for sale
The first and easiest thing to do when selling second-hand clothes is making them clean and presentable. Obviously, you’re going to want to send what you’re selling through the wash with extra care to remove any stubborn stains or spots. Just be careful not to be too harsh or wash your items excessively. Otherwise you’ll risk tearing, shrinking or fading them unnecessarily. Check everything for existing holes, tears, or stray fibers. Of course, if needed go through and repair any damage your dogs that they currently bear.
Next, aside from the obvious delicate’s, be sure to iron, then neatly fold or hang your items, so they look just as good – or as close as possible to being as good – as the day they looked when you purchased them. Implementing a high level of showmanship goes a long way and will help expedite the rate at which your clothes sell.
Where exactly do i go to sell my old clothes
The most traditional methods of selling second-hand clothes would be to have an old fashioned garage sale. However, in doing this, you may not get sufficient foot traffic to attract a wide enough audience of buyers interested in buying your items. Other potential issues include garnering enough garage sale connoisseurs who are the same size and gender as you.
Fortunately, in the digital age, there exist some different internet venues you can use to put your clothing on sale all day every day, while not having to be worried about those previously mentioned potential problems. For example, Tradesy focuses on advertising used designer clothing so that you can buy and sell top brand clothing. What’s great about this service is that Tracey takes a smaller cut on sales than other used clothing sellers, a commission of only nine percent, so more money goes to you. Most other pre-owned online clothing sales services charge a larger fee of about twenty percent but make up for it with unique features.
