Local used clothing stores and consignment boutiques are two options for selling used clothes. Valuable and rare clothing pieces can also be sold successfully on eBay or on peer-to-peer fashion sales apps.
For high-quality older items that are in good condition, vintage stores may be a good option. Vintage stores generally prefer pieces that are more than 20 years old.
Fashion forward pieces can be sold at boutiques that stock trendy, contemporary pieces. This is a good way to sell inexpensive or midmarket clothing. Some used clothing stores appraise items and pay cash on the spot
For high-quality items and upmarket brands, sellers should consider offering their merchandise for consignment. Consignment stores, which charge a commission for selling customer merchandise, pay for items once they have sold rather than when they are dropped off.
Before taking clothing for appraisal at vintage retailers or consignment shops, it is important to repair damage and then clean and iron the clothing.
High end, classic items, especially designer accessories like scarves and gloves, can often be sold successfully online. While eBay has a large general audience, consignment apps including Poshmark and The Real Real focus purely on fashion and are a good way to sell in-demand used clothing and accessories.
