You’d like to earn cash or store credit by selling your gently-used clothes, so this is the instructional guide you’ve been searching for. We tell you how to prepare to sell your clothes in 5 easy steps.
1. Check our Online Selling Guide
Start by learning what Crossroads is currently looking to buy in stores or through our Sell By Mail program. You can always find an updated selling guide on our website, featuring all of the latest trends we love.
2. Sort Clothes
Now it’s time to clean out your closet and drawers! Review each piece of clothing and determine if it’s best for selling or donating. For example, clothes you’ve purchased in the last 2 years have a better chance of selling. Donate older clothing, unless it’s an ’80s or ’90s piece that’s considered vintage.
3. Examine the Little Details
For each piece of clothing you’ve decided to sell, check that all buttons are affixed and that all zippers work properly. Then, double-check for stains.
4. Confirm They’re Freshly Laundered
Resale shops only buy laundered clothing, so if the item has been hanging so long in your closet you can’t remember if it’s clean, don’t take a chance and just wash it! Freshly laundered clothing will be noticed by buyers and give you better odds of selling your clothes.
5. Don’t Forget Accessories
Crossroads buys clothing accessories too, so look for gently-used shoes, handbags, belts, and scarves to add to your selling bag.
BONUS STEP: Enjoy Your Clean Closet and Extra Cash
Step back and admire your clean closet, organized with your favorites pieces and perhaps a few new finds you bought with the cash or store credit your earned at Crossroads. Enjoy!
