Learn How to Sell Your Used Clothes Online or Host a Clothing Swap

While you are purchasing in quality garments, you might want to consider buying cheaper fashions by shopping secondhand or offer clothing you no longer want and make money by selling them! If you get in the practice of taking care of your clothes, you can pass them on to other people who will fall in love with them.

Here’s some advice for hosting a successful clothing swap:

Selling:

If you have high-quality clothes, you might want to sell them or get on sites that are now set up for people to sell clothing they no longer want such as Buffalo Exchange or Square Space just to name two.

Swapping:

Invite a crew, create a playlist, provide snacks, and get ready to clean out your closet. Presenting a clothing swap is one of the best ways to get rid of clothing you are not going to ever wear again. You will help stop the avalanche of clothing ending up in landfills, harming the environment.

According to the McKinsey Report, consumers have purchased over 60% more clothes in 2014 than in 2000. Over the past 20 years, the fashion industry has produced far too many clothes that are cheaper but consumers will only wear for a brief period of time before tossing them out. These clothes are the fastest growing items of waste that are filling up our landfills.

Keep Your Standards High –

You want people to buy items they’d be happy to give as gifts to friends and family. Make sure your clothes are not stained or ripped. Check over your clothes before offering them for sale or swapping.

Organize Your Clothes –

Organize your clothing in categories such as tops, pants, dresses, size, and shoes. This would only work if you have enough items to do so, otherwise, it could be overkill.

Create An Appealing Display –

Provide racks or tables so potential buyers or swappers can go through the items easily. If limited, you can also use the floor or your sofa.

Plan For Consumers Wanting To Try Items On –

Make sure they have a place to try items on such as a bedroom or bathroom as a changing room. Have a full-length mirror for them to view the outfit.

Have A Give-Back Plan –

If friends have contributed to the clothing swap, be prepared to give them back. Any items that are left behind, find organizations that will take in donations.

While you are purchasing in quality garments, you might want to consider buying cheaper fashions by shopping secondhand or offer clothing you no longer want and make money by selling them! If you get in the practice of taking care of your clothes, you can...

Every kid in town had an Easy-Bake Oven in the ’60s and ’70s. Nothing represented the American Dream and the lifestyle of real-life 60’s housewives like this toy. If you desperately wanted to buy one too, all you had to do was work the lemonade stand for a day or two, as it only cost $11.

Nowadays, the price for an Easy-Bake Oven is just as high as the price of an actual oven! This ‘National Toy Hall of Fame’ award recipient retails for as high as $4,000!
