Have you heard of ThreadUP? I do NOT recommend for selling your clothes!

Hi everyone! So I am an anti-packrat. If it's no longer useful, it goes.  I had some nice shoes and clothing (both mine and my kids) that were in great condition, so I looked into ThreadUP.  They have partnered with Macy's- they send you a bag, you fill it and send it in (postage is pre-paid by them).  They promise a fair evaluation for your goods, and pay you in Macy's credits to use in the store.  Seemed like a win-win.  Except that I easily donated about $400. worth of nice clothes and shoes and they only credited me ten dollars.  TEN. DOLLARS.. I know lots of folks here are looking for ways to get rid of their old clothes.  ThreadUP, in my opinion, ain't one of them.  (PS- fine to get stuff from them, you can find some deals, just don't give them your nice stuff!)

Wow. You'd get a better tax deduction by donating $400 in clothing to Goodwill. I will check out to buy but not donate. Thanks for letting us know!

As word gets out that they are so chintzy with their valuations, their selection will suffer, so now may be the time to buy, before it implodes.

I'm in the market for cute jeans and capris in size 6 if you have anything! Tops are an extra small-small but I figured that's the size you're wearing too so unless you're bored with them it would only be bottoms!

I often donate to purple heart, but when I saw the promise of macy's cash I thought it would be a great way to finance my new wardrobe.  I was so wrong! Anyway, do check it out for some good buys, Wendy may be right, get while the gettin's good :)

Good point Wendy. I've bought several things from them but have never sold through them. Thanks for the advice Bellamoma.

My skinnies are size 6. I honestly haven't tried any pants on for a couple months now. I'll have to get to the store and see what fits! I think I just have wide hips!

I don't have that available, sorry! Have you looked on eBay? I bought a lot there as I was going down in size.

Personally I give everything away. It blesses me to bless other people and it always comes back to you one way or another. If that isn't your thing you can always try a local consignment shop. Typically they run 70/30 or 60/40. Just remember to pick your things up at the end of each season if they don't sell otherwise they will be donated.

As a shopper: I've used Poshmark a lot, not sure if you've heard of them. I've bought a bunch of handbags from there. Thanks for the tip on the experience with ThreadUp/Macy's.

Otherwise, I donate clothes usually.
