I love clothing swaps y'all, but now that I have moved out of my hometown of Washington, DC to my new town of Baton Rouge, LA, I don't have all the friends around that I used to swap with. What's a girl to do who needs new clothes on a tight budget in a new town?
Enter, Twice. Twice is an online used clothing store where you can buy and sell gently used clothes. They have a really wide selection of great brands like Ann Taylor, Loft, Anthropologie, J. Crew, Banana Republic, Tahari, Michael Kors, Express, Gap, BCBG Max Azria, Abercrombie, NY & Company, the list goes on!
The categories of clothing that they buy and sell are tops, dresses, jeans, pants, and skirts. No shoes, handbags, or accessories unfortunately, but they have a lot to choose from in the categories they do have. You can search by size, color, style, and brand. You can even search for where you will wear an item, like office wear, casual, or dressy.
And if you want to make some extra cash? Twice will be glad to purchase your gently used clothes. Just go on their site, click the "Sell" button, and request a free bag to be sent to you. Fill up the bag with up to 30 items (no kidding!) and send it back free of charge with a prepaid label. They only want clean clothes in great condition (no stains or tears) from higher end brands, so no Old Navy, Forever 21, or H&M, and they have a list online of the brands they buy. You can check estimates for what they will pay you with their online calculator. If they don't buy an item you sell them, they can ship it back to you (buy you have to pay shipping) or they donate it to charity. I have sold clothes to Twice before and was pleased with the ease of the buying process. It took a few weeks to get the sale quote from them because I sent it in while they had a boom of sales and they were backlogged, but I'm sure they are up to speed by now. :) They pay you via Paypal or by store credit, whichever you prefer.
When you sign up here, my readers can get $10 toward their first Twice purchase with no purchase minimum so you can get that $10 blouse for free! Shipping is free on orders over $49 and is only $5 otherwise. I just placed an order for a great purple studded top and new black trousers for way cheap. I love Twice and I'm sure you will too!
