If you’re wondering how to work in sustainable fashion, we may have the answer for you. Consider launching your career with a resale fashion company like Crossroads.
The resale fashion industry is growing quickly. It stands out from traditional retail for its unique shopper experience (ever-changing inventory) and environmentally-friendly benefits. Secondhand shopping gets pre-loved clothing into new hands and gives clothing a longer life.
Here’s what resale fashion looks like at Crossroads!
Who We Are: We’re one of the original secondhand fashion retailers, fresh off of celebrating 30 years in business!
What We Do: We buy, sell, and trade gently used fashion pieces at 35 store locations across the U.S. Sellers bring in their gently-used clothing to sell for cash or store credit. Shoppers enjoy racks of pre-loved clothing at prices well below original retail.
What We’re Known For: We’re proud of our elevated secondhand shopping experience. Our in-store buyers curate the rack selections with the latest seasons and trends in mind. The clothing selection varies from popular mall brands to vintage gems to designer pieces.
So our best tip for how to work in sustainable fashion is to join us at Crossroads. Are we hiring? You bet we are!
Read more about our career benefits and see our job offerings here. Besides being a resale fashion store, we’re a big team of people who love fashion and the environment. You can even hear about the company’s history from its first employee and current Chief Retail Officer on the Pre-Loved Podcast here.
Along with pool parties, popsicles, and vacation plans, it’s time for summer slide sandals!
We were not disappointed. In fact, our finds reminded us that there are all kinds of different summer slide sandals to consider. Here are just 6 that we came across in our search.
Fun & Furry
Maybe not beach-ready, but ready for lounging at home. Uggs, $42.50.
Summer slides with a modern twist! Simon Miller, $120 (white), $225 (black).
Make them retro if you can. Cole Haan, $28.
Nothing like a jelly sandal for summer trips to the pool. Gucci, price upon request (Market St., San Francisco).
Did you know some of your favorite designers are making the best summer slides right now? Gucci, $250.
A closed-toe version makes them work in the office too! Moschino, $120.
We’re sort of sold on all these choices, how about you? Some will work on a Saturday morning, some will make it to the beach, and some will elevate our favorite sundress.
Visit your local Crossroads store to see which ones they have available. Our stores buy in all day, every day from the public, so our inventory is constantly refreshed. That means new finds waiting for you daily.
And bring in your gently-used seasonal clothes to sell too. You may get those new slides with store credit!
You know how we feel: shopping resale fashion is fun, affordable, and eco-friendly.
We call it a treasure hunt because you never know what you’ll find on the racks of our stores. Some come in knowing they need new denim, while others peruse the racks for simply something special. Most wait for a piece to catch their eye, then it’s off to the fitting room to confirm it’s a match.
The resale fashion pieces at Crossroads have been purchased directly from other fashion lovers in your neighborhood. This means a store buyer has hand-selected the piece for the store. The piece is gently used and on-trend. Sometimes pieces are even NWT! They were a great find but didn’t end up working out for the person who sold the piece. Lucky you, swooping in to buy it for your closet.
