Friday Find: Threadflip

17 Aug

So as we all know…one of my summer bucket list items is to clean out my closet.

When it comes down to it, if I spent money on it…I somehow just can’t part with it.

I’ve tried taking items to consignment shops to lessen the sting, but I’m always just too lazy busy to get to one. So I hoard treasure items, eventually giving them to Goodwill. But most things end up in clothes purgatory, or as it’s officially called, “the guest room.”

Which is why I’m super-excited to check out Threadflip. I first saw this on Lofty Appetite–and had to run home to try it.

Threadflip is an online boutique for gently-used clothing, shoes, and accessories. You decide the price—it’s free to list items—and Threadflip’s ‘concierge’ takes care of the rest. $7 is added to the price to cover shipping, and when you sell an item, Threadflip sends you a box and label to ship it in. Photo, list, sell, ship.

The catch? Threadflip does take 20% of the price to make a profit—but it’s well worth it for the convenience of being able to sell items without leaving the comfort of my couch home.

So far I have my online boutique up—now I just need that first sale!
