If you aren’t familiar with thredUP, let me tell you a little about them. ThredUP is in online consignment store with prices starting at only $2.49. You’ll find all of your favorite name brands like GAP, Old Navy, Ralph Lauren, Gymboree and more at up to 75% off of retail prices. Each item has been hand selected and put through a quality assurance inspection. Awhile back I was given the opportunity to experience ThredUP for myself and it exceeded my expectations. First, the website is super easy to use. Since I have three children I had my eye out for different sizes and genders. The filters easily allowed me to search for both of my girls at the same time. I just selected their sizes and both appeared in the search results. The pictures of each piece of clothing are high quality. In fact, you can even zoom in to see the items up close.
I was given a shopping budget of $20 and let loose. I found three complete outfits for my youngest: An adorable long sleeved striped OshKosh shirt and pants to match, a fleece hoodie and pants set from Children’s Place and a super cute top (not a brand I recognized but clearly high quality) that perfectly matched a pair of pants I found separately from Children’s Place. 6 items for less than $20! I was even more impressed when the ThredUP package arrived on my doorstep. Everything was in pristine condition and if it weren’t for the fact that there weren’t any retail tags attached I would have never been the wiser.
I’ve been taking my kids clothes to a consignment store when they outgrown them to get credit. The problem is I usually have my kids with me making it difficult to shop to spend the credit. I love that I can shop from home with ThredUP and have the items delivered to me. I was thrilled to find out that ThredUP also offers the same kind of opportunity. They’ll send you a bag to fill up with clothes you no longer need and they’ll cover the shipping costs to return it to them. They’ll give you 20-40% off each items resale value in cash or to use towards clothing in their online store. How sweet is that?
Stalking ThredUP is one of my new hobbies and once you try it I’m sure you’ll agree with me how great it is! Free shipping on orders of $40 or more or a flat rate of $6.95. Try it. You’ll like it. Trust me! When you sign up through this link you’ll get $10 off your first purchase of $10 or more (and I’ll get a $10 credit too!) If you’ve used ThredUP before you can still save 10% at ThredUP.com with code FAN10.
