November 30, 2023 Designer Resale Pieces in Stores Now

Designer resale pieces have a special place in our heart because while we love luxury pieces, we don’t always have the budget to match.

Plus, there’s something extra exciting about finding a secondhand piece that’s priced at a third of its original retail price!

Gently used clothing and accessories from Balenciaga, Gucci, Prada, Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton…need we say more?

Take a look at some of the designer resale pieces that were recently spotted on the floors of our stores. These are just a sample of what you can find in our consignment cases. (And, ahem, did you know we give 50-70% cash payouts on consigned items? It’s true!).

While you’re in our stores looking for great designer picks, consider selling or consigning your own pre-loved pieces. We offer both cash and store credit payout options, and our experienced buyers buy all day every day.

First, visit our seasonal selling guide to see the styles, labels, and brands we’re currently looking for. Then, locate your nearest Crossroads store, or try our Sell by Mail service from the convenience of home.

Either way, you could earn cash or store credit for your next designer purchase!

November 28, 2023 Photo Inspiration: The Metallic Dress

A metallic dress is a fitting holiday fashion selection. Along with all the season’s tinsel and bows, the shine of a metallic dress feels extra festive.

What might surprise you is that they come in different styles beyond the classic cocktail version you probably have in mind. Floor length, baby doll, and maxi versions should also be considered!

Fabrics can be silky, sheer, or a heavy brocade. Few accessories are needed with a piece this special.

Keep scrolling to see some of the looks that caught our eye.

November 23, 2023 How to Sell Clothing by Mail

If you want to sell clothing by mail, Crossroads has the best option for you. The Crossroads Sell by Mail program is so easy, you can start the process in minutes.

How to Sell Clothing with Crossroads

First, you’ll want to check if there’s a Crossroads store near you. Selling in person at Crossroads is the fastest way to earn cash or trade from your pre-loved clothing and accessories.

But if there isn’t one nearby, or your short on time, request a free Sell by Mail bag on our website. You’ll be able to select cash or trade for your payout and decide if you want your unpurchased items donated or returned for a fee.

When the bag arrives, clean out your closet! Use our handy selling guide as a reference. It shows you the fashion pieces our buyers are currently looking for.

When the bag is full, use the pre-paid shipping label to mail it off. Wait to hear from one of our buyers once they’ve processed your bag.

November 21, 2023 Styling a Lace Skirt for the Holidays

Owning a lace skirt makes our holiday looks that much easier to style. This classic fashion piece is anything but one note. It strategically pairs well with multiple pieces and can be worn casually or as evening wear.

Take a look at some of the ways we like to style them during the busy holiday event schedule.

With Boots & a Bomber

A lace skirt gets even more interesting when paired with casual pieces like boots, graphic tees, and oversized jackets like a bomber.

With a Classic Blouse or Button Down

Pair a lace skirt with a blouse or button down to make it office ready. Add a great structured handbag to finish the look.

Add instant balletcore glam with a bodysuit and heels. Go monochrome for the full effect.
