Turn Fashionable Clutter Into Cash

by Angela On November 24, 2008

Money  A few weeks ago I spoke on my favorite local radio station Mix 94.7 with Bridget and Carey during their Happy Hour Show.  I spoke about Turning Clutter Into Cash and the topic was very well received.  So I wanted to follow up with a few more tips for those of you who may be looking for a little extra money for your holiday shopping.   

I recently read an article on the Wall Street Journal called “Selling Your Fashion Castoffs” which gave some great tips for selling on e-bay verses a consignment shop.  The article also gives insight into what some of the big sellers are and states: “EBay says that in the third quarter, the most searched fashion labels on the site were Ed Hardy, Nike, Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch”.  Who knew?  So maybe that Nike jogging suite you got last year for Christmas and never wore may be able to fetch you a little extra cash this year.   

If you are looking into using e-bay, but you don’t want to do it yourself there are companies who will do it for you.  One national company is called I Sold It.  Two local companies in the Austin area are Vendelo and eSold ®.  I used one of these services a few years ago to sell an antique Singer Sewing Machine and found it to be fantastic.  I didn’t have to worry about researching the product, photographing the product, or answering questions.  It was extremely easy.  You can visit the web-sites of the Ebay Storefont mentioned above to find locations and to see if this type of service is right for you. 

Clearing out your closet in time for the holidays, how sweet it is.

Enjoy the good life,

Angela
