As a mother of 3 growing children, I’ve visited a couple of kid’s consignment stores but have never found anything to purchase. Don’t get me wrong…these stores had a lot of great clothes but none that I felt was worth buying. This changed when I learned about thredUP, an online kid’s consignment shop. I was intrigued and skeptical by the fact that it was an online consignment shop. My initial thought was that it probably did not have much of a selection and the quality would not be as great. Boy was I mistaken!
Buy children’s clothing and baby clothing on thredUP.com to save money, time and the planet. By selling gently used clothing instead of new clothing, we have great deals on top kids clothing brands, such as GAP, Ralph Lauren, Carters, Gymboree, Lands End, and more. Every like new kids clothing item is hand-selected by our quality assurance specialists, and packaged with love. We have adorable girl dresses, boy pants, and t-shirts and fresh threds are listed everyday! Moms are saving thousands of dollars buying like new instead of brand new, and lightening their family eco-prints with every purchase.

When I first visited the website I was truly impressed by the amount of clothes you have to choose from. I couldn’t believe they had so many people selling and purchasing clothes from them. I also liked the fact that their website is so user friendly. I have two boys so I was interested in viewing various clothes in their sizes. I was able to choose two criteria – boys’ sizes 8 and 10. It was great! I scrolled through all the clothes specifically in their sizes and was able to find a couple. I purchased a Volcom shirt and an Oneill and Wagner shorts. Yes…name brand items for less than $20! YIPPEE!!!
Now, I was still skeptical on the quality of the products so I waited and in 9 days received the package. I must say the clothes were in great shape! Even my son loved his “new” clothes. I am hooked!! I check their website frequently as they update it with new items daily. I am also considering selling some of my children’s gently used clothes and some new clothes that still have the tag.
Of course, I want to be sure that I’m getting a good deal. Well, thredUP.com has it all covered. You can type in the brand (e.g. Gap), size, and category (e.g. hoodies) and in seconds it will tell you the range they would pay you for that particular item. Just remember that the clothes need to be like new, clean and fresh, and in style – within 2 years of purchase. You can then request for a bag. Note: you will need to initially pay a $4.95 deposit for the bag. This is fully refunded when they receive your bag. Then fill the bag up, send it back to them (free shipping), and claim your available cash back via PayPal or use the credit to purchase more clothes. I haven’t actually sold any clothes yet since I haven’t had the time to go through their clothes but I will. So, if you have a chance, check out their website. Just imagine all the money you can save buying your child’s clothes from thredUP. Definitely worth it!!!
