I absolutely must share a new website I recently was introduced to: thredUP.com! Have you heard of it? I feel like I’m behind a bit because I’m just now discovering this amazing website, just in case you’re like me and don’t know about thredUP.com here’s some information about the site:
thredUp.com is just like a consignment sale or shop but without the crazy crowds and all in the comfort of your home. How it works is thredUP buys consignment-quality, out-grown kid’s clothing from families just like you and me then every day thredUP hand selects the best clothes and posts them for sale on the website. When you make a purchase the clothes are boxed or packaged up and shipped right to your home. Even better is that you can sell your items to thredUP as well! Yep, they buy consignment quality clothing (no stains, no holes, nothing extremely worn out) to sell on the website. Just like when you put your clothing in a consignment sale but again all from the comfort of your home. You can either request a bag or when you make a purchase you receive a clothing bag you can fill with like-new clothes and just set it out by your mailbox for pick-up. Your clothes are inspected and thredUP pays 20-40% of the resale value upfront.
So I logged in and got started shopping. I love the ease of using the website, I can narrow down the clothing to just the gender and sizes I need, even narrow down to just dresses or short sleeve tees or just search for a particular brand in my needed size. The website is so easy to use! The only problem I ran into was finding too much I wanted!
There’s even a neat feature where you can also “reserve” items for a friend if you come across something you think your find might like. The prices are definitely a plus for me, the prices seemed right on for each items… a little higher depending on brand and condition, some priced well below what I would even expect to find at a consignment sale!
With warm weather popping up several times during the week and Abby not really having any short sleeve tees I immdiately looked for some tees and dresses for her. The selection of clothing available is amazing, just in Abby’s size alone I had so many to choose from! I quickly picked out what I wanted to get her and submitted my order. I got an email confirmation letting me know my order was being processed and my polka-dot box would ship soon!
A few days later my polka-dot box arrive! I was so excited, I couldn’t wait to see her clothes!
I was quite impressed with the clothing we received. I shop consignment sales and I know that people sneak in or over look stains so I was a tiny bit worried since this was all done online. I was so happy to see that thredUP really inspects their clothing and provides only great used clothing, the items I received are fantastic! I even found one outfit that was new with tags! Everything else was in amazing condition, some items were even better than I expected especially for the super low prices I paid!
I have found a new favorite shopping site, that’s for sure! I hate the crowds and chaos of consignment sales here lately, everyone snatching and grabbing just to get all they can and I just don’t handle crowds well. I love being able to shop when I want, whether isn’t at 3 in the afternoon or even 2 in the morning and I especially love shopping at home in my pjs! I have told everyone I know about thredUP here lately, I’m sure all my friends are tired of hearing about it but this website is wonderful for shopping and then selling out-grown children’s clothing. I know Abby barely gets much wear out of her clothes before she outgrows them so shopping for great consignment-quality clothes are super low prices is perfect for me.
I love shopping thredUP.com so much that since receiving my review box, I have already placed two additional orders with the website. The inventory is always changing so I find myself checking the website almost daily just to see what new might have popped up (and that we must have). I will definitely be shopping thredUP from now on and plan to put together my first bag to send in soon.
Definitely visited www.thredUP.com and take a look around, I’m sure you’ll find lots of great clothing at great prices and you’ll love getting the polka-dot boxes in the mail! Plus first time customers get $10 off their first order!! That means free clothes! There’s just nothing better, here over HERE.
