Part Four: Online Consignment with thredUP
I recently got a jump start on a few fall and winter items for my boys by placing my first ever order via online consignment. Imagine all the best of consignment shopping without all the work. Don’t get me wrong, there is a huge part of me that loves battling the crowds and competing for those great finds straight from the racks. However, there is also a huge part of me that loves finding some great deals in my pajamas. So, when I discovered the online consignment store, thredUP, I was eager to see what I could find. And, I’m even more excited to now be able to provide the following review and offer to readers looking to do the same!
(Update: ThredUP now has a new look. Since writing this review, their website has been updated and they have launched a new women’s line. You can read about my experience here. So, happy shopping for your kids..and now, for yourself!)
Another feature of the website is that all the items are indexed with images. It is just like shopping from your favorite clothing retail store online, but the prices are much lower. Here are a few screen shots of a search for boys and girls sweaters.
(Note: The images below show just one of many pages of results.)
For the fellas:
For the ladies:
|“Gently Loved. Amazingly Awesome”|
|Arizona Sweaters – One New w/ Tag|
|Old Navy Holiday Sweaters|
|Nautica and Gymboree Vests|
|Coordinating Gymboree Fleece Pull-Overs|
|University of Michigan Shirt – Brand New w/ Tag|
Did you see all those coordinating finds? And, how about the tags still on a few of those sweaters?
|Purchases come with a free “toy” (the box) for the kiddos.|
