These clothes are the remnants of my tween’s closet from 3 years ago. My first thought was to just give the clothes away to the first taker but that went no where. Next I thought about just putting the clothes in a donation bin but changed my mind. Lastly the thought of putting the clothes on Ebay was a quick thought. I have an Ebay account but the thought of photographing each item and posting on Ebay felt a bit too time consuming.
My google search for an online consignment store in California brought up a few places. However the company I read about was not in the list. I did come across Swap.com which will allow you to package and ship your items. The company accepts boys, girls, maternity, some toys and books. One of the best features is the fact that I received a discount code after registering. The discount code saved money on their valet service which is my shipping method. Initially I thought about going to Loews and purchasing a box to ship the items but decided to allow swap.com to send me a shipping label and bag. I realized the company will only accept a package up to 70lbs. There is a strict policy on the condition of the items. Once the items are received swap.com will photograph and add to my account. The discount code allowed me to pay via paypal for a label and shipping bag at a discounted price. The items are stored for free. Also if my items do not sell after 45 days with Swap.com, I have two options 1) sell to Swap.com or 2) the items can be shipped back to me. If the items require longer storage there are fees associated.
I will continue my review once the items are shipped and received. This may be my new way to de-clutter when my kids outgrow their clothes every season.
