Things I Love: thredUP

Thursday, April 7, 2016

I'm going to be real honest with you right now - I LOVE to purge my closet! At least once a month I'll take a bag of clothes to Goodwill, because I have plenty and hate them just taking up space. 

This past month I had some really nice clothes. Some still had the tags on them- J.Crew, Lilly Pulitzer, Ralph Lauren, Lucky Brand, Ann Taylor, you get the point. Those clothes, I didn't want to just donate. My sister (who tells me about everything) told me about thredUP this online consignment store based in downtown San Francisco.

thredUP is an easy way to consign your clothes without even leaving your house. They'll send you a "Clean Out Kit" - basically a REALLY big bag that you can fill up and send back for free. Once they get your clothes, it takes about a week for them to tell you how much money they'll give you. If you want your clothes back, you have to pay a $12.99 shipping fee or you can -

1) Get the cash back via PayPal or check
2) Get store credit
3) Donate to support one of their causes


I decided to give thredUP a try, because all of the online consignment stores I've tried haven't wow'd me. One of the ones in Greensboro, you have to wait at the store while they calculate how much they'll give you. Oh but if you're in line, it'll take like three hours. So I peaced out of there!! 

I decided to cash out with the money I made from thredUP via PayPal and put it all into my new Carolina LuLaRoe business!
