Your style is impeccable (we see you!), and who doesn’t love to spend less on clothing? So with that in mind, do you know there are 2 ways you save money with secondhand fashion?
1. You save with lower prices.
Were you aware that resale fashion retailers like Crossroads price their items at approximately one-third of the original retail price? That’s right: an item that was originally listed for $75 at a typical retail store will be priced closer to $25 in a secondhand store. Since the store’s buyers only bring in excellent condition, gently used pieces, the trade-off for a secondhand piece is practically unnoticeable.
2. You save even more when you sell and trade your clothes.
On top of significantly discounted prices, there’s a way to save even more. Buy-sell-trade fashion retailers allow you to sell your pre-loved clothes for cash or store credit. In the case of Crossroads, you’ll get 30% in cash of what the item is priced for, or 50% in store credit (AKA trade). For example, if the buyer prices your item at $30, you’ll receive either $9 in cash or $15 in store credit. It’s your choice! Sound too good to be true? Get all the details here.
The 2 ways you save money with secondhand fashion don’t even include the best savings of all: the savings in environmental impact. Buying secondhand clothing extends the lifetime of clothing and reduces the need for new pieces to be produced. It’s a win all around. There you were just being stylish, and you were saving money and protecting the environment too. Well done!
