Re: Is ebay worth the hassle/fees to sell unused kids clothes?

thredup--they give you a bag & you fill it with clothes, sizes 12m and over in perfect condition & then they pay you

not bad if you want to get rid of stuff.

i 2nd local consignment sales as well.

mostly, i sell on spot's corner & ebay for my high-end stuff; thredup for the rest & then donate.

For brands like hanna andersson and gymboree ebay is great.

other midrange brands like circo and the childrens place thredup.

stuff like faded glory and store brands lots on craigslist is the best

I've also had pretty good luck selling clothes on facebook. I'm on a bunch of the bst boards there. Some groups there are better than others, but overall selling has gone much better for me there than here.

they are all full or only give store credit

well the $3 was an example LOL

Re: Is ebay worth the hassle/fees to sell unused kids clothes?

I have just started ebaying, and I love it! I am not doing tons at a time so it's not that overwhelming. I was trying to sell stuff on CL, but it was NOT moving at all, and I had great prices (gap and gymbo stuff for .50)
I am going to look into thread up...I thought it was just a swap site, but I guess I was wrong.

The reviews I read for thread up were very negative. Maybe I'll have to reconsider after hearing so many good things here!

I just got my "payment" from thred up today. Im now not a big fan. Seems like unless an item is in new condition they dont give you anything. I could have sold the clothes they didnt take for cheap but something on ebay

thredup doesn't accept circo

hanna andersson can do well on ebay, but gymboree is hit or miss. For gymboree size 2T-4 seems to do best, in current styles

they are very picky. My first bag I got $11 and was MAD. But then I kept trying and one bag I got over $150, but most have been in the $50-75 range, which I am totally fine with bc it would have just been donated anyway (I typically send my ebay rejects there lol). The better the brand the more you get.
