thredup goodies.

so beth told me about thredup quite some time ago, and i immediately ordered my bag, which is still sitting in my closet...waiting to be filled with barely worn but unwanted clothing to be sent back to thredup! one day i'll finally get that done.

for those of you who are new to thredup, let me fill you in. thredup is a company that buys women's and kids clothing pieces as well as shoes and handbags that are all in like-new condition. they then take those items and resell them to you and me!

where do they get the clothes in the first place? from people like you and me! i mentioned that i ordered my bag...you can order a bag from thredup which you will then fill with name brand items, ship back to thredup, and be paid for it. who doesn't love getting paid for the clothes they don't wear anymore?? if you're wondering what brands thredup is looking for, you can check out a list here.


i've been on the search for a gold clutch for a while now, and if you know me, you know i'm a little picky when it comes to purchasing certain things. like gold clutches. if i'm going to buy a gold clutch, i want it to be one that i really really love.

when i found out that thredup had started selling from their handbag collection, i knew i needed to check it out! i looked every few days as new items were added until i finally stumbled upon this beauty and immediately put it in my cart. this clutch is in like-new condition, was originally a $70 bag, and i got it for $17. what a steal! seriously. i am in love with it and can't wait to use it!

i'm so with you! my thredup bag was sitting on my desk for at least two months, and now it's sitting half-full at my bedroom door, waiting for a few more pieces to find their way in and then off to the post office it goes. the closet clean-out process is a long one for me. haha


great find on the clutch!

haha...i had this small leather cross-body bag that i used for a few years and i LOVED it, but the edges are worn and it's falling apart a little so i finally broke down and bought a new purse a couple of months ago. it was hard to let go! haha.

I really like this site! I have ordered a few things and also found a few other sites similar that really do save you a lot of money on nice items! Nice post! Stopping by from Treasure Tromp! :)

I've been considering using Thred-Up for a while now. We have a consignment store here though, so I'm not sure which company I want to sell my things to!

The title of this post is ironic to say the least. Buyers really do get a steal. And I mean a literal steal. ThredUP is shamelessly ripping sellers off left and right. There are complaints all over the internet as well as ThredUP's Facebook page. So, while it's awesome to get a Marc Jacobs clutch for a "steal", just know that the seller was probably not paid fairly, if at all, for that same clutch you're gushing over.
