i have been trying my hardest recently to not hold on to things that i am no longer using. for starters, who in nyc has the space to hold on to things "just because"? i can tell you right now, not me, that's for sure! sooo being that my closet has turned itself into one big fat disaster zone (seriously, how does that happen so quickly? its like a clothes tornado hit or something...) i figured that it was probably a sign that i have too much stuff and it's time to get rid of some things. in the city, its always a safe bet that if you stick your no longer wanted goods out on the sidewalk, they'll be taken faster than an unchained bike (sad, i know, makes me so sad for the poor bike owner whenever i see a lonely tire chained to a pole as the only remains of what was once, i'm sure, a pretty decent ride)
but sometimes i say to myself "self, isn't there an easy way i could sell some of this stuff to have some spare cash to, yet again, fill my closet with new things?" (vicious cycle, this whole fashion loving thing is...)
i've never had good luck attempting the whole ebay thing, garage sales don't exist here, and the thought of selling clothes on craigslist seems...well, frankly, scary .
buuuuut....much to my delight, i found this website called threadflip!
threadflip's whole vision couldn't fit more perfectly with what i have been wanting to achieve:
"Threadflip is pioneering a new social shopping experience by offering women a simple way to convert their closets into a dynamic boutique-like experience, connecting buyers with sellers, and capturing the collaborative energy of shopping with friends. We hope to revolutionize the world of online shopping by providing a new way to discover, buy and sell fashion"
so, wanna know exactly how it works? here ya go!
"Threadflip is a social marketplace for buying, selling, and discovering new, unique, and pre-loved fashion. With a few clicks, users can upload images of pieces straight from their closet, and sell clothing, shoes, bags, and jewelry they no longer wear, creating a treasure trove of thousands of new pieces every day."
sounds like fun, right?
you can check out my entire threadflip closet here
and if you're new to threadflip, you can join here
and if you do, follow my closet, that way i can follow you back.
you might just have that perfect pair of booties i've been looking all over for!
