There are many reasons we clean out our closets. We clean closets because we are moving, spring cleaning, changing sizes, or engaging in a seasonal ritual. I hate to part with an expensive item even though I no longer wear it. I especially hate just giving it away! Many of the clothing consignment shops in my community take a hefty commission. Having just gone through a major closet clean-out, I decided to explore the newly established and increasing online consignment store population. I was excited and encouraged by all the options and am definitely going to be shipping many items off next week!
Why not just use eBay? These online consignment stores have changed the market and ramped up the customer service. For example, your purchased items usually come nicely wrapped and returns are easy.
For the younger set going to wedding after wedding, many of the higher-end online consignment stores are the perfect place to find ‘new’ looks for a fraction of their retail cost.
