Clothing may be one of the most singularly important items we regularly buy as consumers. We all need clothing as a basic human need, but the types of clothing we buy expresses so much more about who we are and what we value. From the brands to the fabric, our clothes tell a story about our lives, but what should we do if we have acquired too much clothing?
When most people’s closets have gotten full in the past, they usually resorted to one of two things: 1) they would give them away to a charity or homeless shelter or 2) they would try to turn a buck or two at a yard sale. While these used to be the only ways you could unload clothing, it presented a couple of problems. The first is that they weren’t sustainable, viable ways to get the full price of their clothing. The second is that these never offered a way for individuals to sell clothing in a more systematic, even business-like way.
