Identification

Bring along your ID. You’ll need a valid, government issued ID like a Driver’s License or Passport. (Or, if you’re under 18, bring an adult with a valid ID).

Get Paid

No need to wait for an item to sell! On the day you sell, you’ll walk away with 25% of our selling price in cash or 50% in store credit for anything we’re able to buy.

Top Tips for Selling

Brick colored checkmark Check Condition:

Before you head out the door to sell your clothes, give all of your items a last look. Every item we buy heads straight out onto the rack, so we look for clean clothing in good condition.

Teal colored checkmark  Be Open-Minded:

If you’re not sure if you should bring an item, throw it in the bag! We recommend folding your items rather than keeping them on hangers when selling.

Gold colored checkmark  Ask Questions:

As your buyer goes through your items, ask questions. They’ll be happy to fill you in on what’s selling well at the moment and how much they’re pricing each item for.

FAQs

How does the buyer decide what to take?

Our buyers make selections based on the style and condition as well as our current inventory needs. We pay close attention to items that are selling quickly in our stores and styles our customers are asking for. We keep tabs on items that don’t sell so well. While certain brands are more desirable than others, style is the most important deciding factor for us. If you want to learn more about why your buyer is selecting certain items and passing on others, feel free to ask them! We love to talk fashion.

Can I send you a photo of my item to receive an offer?

We have to see all items in person before we can say whether or not we’d be able to buy them.

What happens after I sell?

After you sell, your buyer will tell you your cash and trade options. Feel free to shop around before making a decision. Then stop by the register on your way out. You can take any combination of cash and trade. Many customers like to use their store credit to buy an item they found that day and take the rest in cash. Others like to take a trade card to use on another day – it never expires!
