June 10, 2024 Summer Classic: The Boho Blouse

Years ago on a summer trip to Europe, I found myself fixated on one specific item on my shopping list: a boho blouse.

I happily found one in a shop pulsating with techno music, and I never looked back. Almost every summer since, I’ve been on the lookout for a boho blouse. I look for one in a loose-fitting style that works as well with a maxi skirt as it does with well-worn jeans. Paired with sandals and a straw bag, the look is classic summer.

If we decide to buy the item, you’ll receive 30% in cash or 50% in trade of what we price the item for.

May 30, 2024 Where Can I Sell My Clothes for Cash?

When you ask, “Where can I sell my clothes for cash?” we know you’re looking to get cash into your hands as fast as possible. That’s why a brick and mortar buy-sell-trade fashion store should top your list!

For example, at Crossroads Trading stores, you can stop into any of our locations (no appointment necessary!) and add your name to our selling waitlist. [PRO TIP: use the Crossroads waitlist app to add your name remotely from home].

Our stores buy all day, every day, so there are no special buying hours to keep track of.

When it’s your turn, a buyer will text you to join them at the selling counter with your items. Feel free to hand them over and shop the store, or ask your buyer to walk you through their buying process.

When the buyer decides to buy an item, they’ll price it for the store’s sales floor. You can then take 30% in cash or 50% in store credit of that amount. This pricing transparency is a specialty of Crossroads, taking the guesswork out of how much the buyer valued each of your items.

The best part: you can collect your cash or store credit before you even leave the store. It doesn’t get much simpler than that!

May 28, 2024 Double Down with a Denim Shirt

A denim shirt is a year-round staple in our closets, alongside our favorite pair of perfectly worn-in jeans. We’re guessing you’re the same. So why not double-down on denim and wear two denim pieces together?

This foundational pairing allows you to put all the focus on your accessories, or keep your look simple but polished. Both are easy fashion wins!

Keep scrolling to take a look at some of the outfits that made it to our style inspiration boards from Instagram. We’re especially fond of what the little red beret adds to the look, and don’t forget to include your denim skirts!

Basics like a denim shirt, jean jacket, or jeans are something we look for every season at Crossroads, so consider selling your preloved pieces for cash or store credit at one of our store locations (or by mail!). We give 30% in cash or 50% in store credit of the amount we price your items for. No appointment is necessary, and you get paid on the spot. We even have a waitlist app that will get you on the store’s selling waitlist from home.

Come in to sell or shop and find your favorite denim!

May 23, 2024 What are Puddle Jeans?

Puddle jeans are trending this season, but what are they exactly? Simply put, they’re jeans that “puddle” at the hemline around your feet!

When shopping for them, there is a little work in finding the pair best suited for you. To get the length just right, you’ll need to consider your most-likely shoe choice, because sometimes the length perfectly “puddles” with sneakers, while other pairs require a higher heel like your favorite wedges or clogs.

Once you find your pair, however, you’re all set. And since most pairs are oversized or wide-leg, they match well with basic fitted tops or tucked-in flowy blouses.

Scroll on to see some of the looks that caught our eye on Instagram.

Whether you’re ready to try puddle jeans or one of the many other trends we’ve listed in our selling guide, you’ll want to stop into one of our store locations to refresh your seasonal wardrobe. You can shop or sell your preloved pieces for cash or store credit. Now’s the time!
