thredUP – Know About It?

11 Feb

This site looks interesting, but I’m not sure I like the price involved with it. Not that it’s a bad price, just that there is a price at all. I’m not sure I would use it enough to make it worth it. I’m assuming it works like Netflix, but I’m not sure…

So, anyone out there familiar with it or use it? Is it as awesome as it seems like it could be?

    Hi Colleen! Thanks for your interest in thredUP. thredUP is a national clothing swap community that lets you trade shirts you no longer wear for new-to-you clothing. It’s a great solution for all those unworn clothes you have hanging in your closet.

    Unlike many of the onerous swap sites out there, thredUP does 95% of the work. It makes the connections, facilitates the mailing (no trips to the post office), and monitors quality.

    Here’s how it works:

    1. You tell threadUP exactly what you like. They shop other people’s closets to find you hidden gems in your size that they think you’ll love.

    2. You provide threadUP with a list of great items you’re no longer wearing. They find thredUP members who are interested in items like these.

    3. threadUP manages the peer-to-peer exchange. You send and receive items using their pre-paid envelopes – no trips to the Post Office, ever!

    I think you should give it a try 😉 Let me know what you think!

    FYI thredUP kids is coming soon!
