I’m going through another one of my closet-purging phases, which is interesting, because I’ve also been adding quite a few things…But I guess that’s why I subsequently need to purge; I hate having so much stuff. I know, not a terrible problem to have, but I really only wear regularly a small portion of my wardrobe. The other things just take up space.
And since I’m swearing off eBay – for good this time – and not all my stuff is appropriate for MOSS here in Austin, I’m going to try out a couple of online alternatives. First, Threadflip, then Poshmark (although I feel like poshmark is kind of limited though, because it’s only an iPhone app).
Yesterday I uploaded my Foley & Corinna mid-city tote bag in canvas & leather trim to Threadflip. It was SO EASY. Almost too easy. I’m a little confused about what happens once it sells, but I think Threadflip takes 15%, which includes shipping/handling, and sends me packaging/shipping supplies. Then I send it out to the buyer and I’m done. They do charge another 5% if you want to cash out, or you can use your money as credit on Threadflip. We’ll see how it goes…no harm in trying, right?
Have you guys tried Threadflip or Poshmark yet? What did you think? Are you interested in trying eBay alternatives?
