thinking about consigning/selling some clothes. wondering how much you get for "selling" your clothes to these stores? is it worth it?

Haha. Maybe $10 per heaping oversize bag of name brand clothes.

You may be able to call and ask how they do their pricing? I asked Once Upon a Child, and they sell items for 50% of retail, and if I remember correctly, they give you 30% (?) of that... so not a lot. It depends what your goal is, and how nice of clothes you have, but you may have better luck on Poshmark or Mercari? If you just want to get rid of stuff quickly and maybe make a few bucks, then something like Plato’s closet may be worth it.

I actually recommend selling them yourself on Mercari. I’ve sold over $600 worth of stuff on there, and had pretty good experiences. It may take a little longer, but you’ll generally make more.

@Sprite7711,

when you post the item it will ask if you want to pay shipping or let the buyer pay. It’ll let you choose the price of shipping by weight. Then when someone buys it’ll email you a pre made label that you just put on your package! Then you just drop it at the post office or fedex depending on which carrier you chose.

I’ve gone to Platos closet to sell quite a few times. Last time I got like $30 bucks for maybe 7 or 8 items I sold. So it’s not a lot but I usually just end up donating what I don’t sell, so for me it was worth it (most stuff was cheap/casual clothing). If you have highend clothes I would sell online like others have posted.

Do you have consignment sales where you live? I shop at them and have been thinking about selling stuff at them, especially once baby #3 is born and I start getting rid of a bunch of stuff.

@Jlee5775,

I do! I was thinking of doing this since I'm not good at the shipping thing.

I've been doing Poshmark since March, and have made almost $500. It took a while to get the hang of it, but now that I mostly understand the tips and tricks, it's super easy and I've been selling a few things each week!

You may want to consider selling them on Fb marketplace. Baby items usually go fast. Ive also sold on Poshmark as well.

I’ve used poshmark since 2012 and have sold almost 5k worth, mind you it works better on designer stuff and I use to work for Nordstrom so I had a lot of it. But it’s still pretty easy just make sure each listing is detailed with measurements because some how people don’t know they’re size ever lol.

Not much at all. I have Platos and Once Upon A Child for kids clothes.

OUAC took about 1/3 to half, got maybe 5-10c a piece.
Platos said they couldn't take it because it had dog hair on it. there were 3 bags that didn't even look touched.
I just donate to Sals now. but now that the kids are older we pretty much use stuff until its undonateable, or I'll have a paper bag full per year and that's not worth consigning to me.

@Asterisk,

PS. We had a Corgi, but the clothes were washed and put straight into the bags.

I’ve sold to Platos Closet before and made next to nothing. I don’t recommend them at all.
