Seeking Resale Shops to BUY My Clothes from Me. Please Help!!!
We went to court last week and I also moved out of the house last week. Now I have him packing up all my stuff for me because he wants "everything" out! He brings stuff over by the carload.
I've moved into an apartment with a one car garage and my garage is now full of boxes, etc. Most of the clothes and some shoes don't fit me anymore, either too big or too small. And honestly, I really, really need the money!! I also have kids clothes and shoes that my children have outgrown.
Can any of you very knowledgeable MAMAs tell me where there are resale shops that will buy adult clothes, shoes, etc and also ones that will buy childrens things as well??? And also, How much should I expect to receive for my items?
I'm in North Richland Hills right now. Please Help!!!
THANKS in advance for all your help!

I dont know if you have the time, but you will get more on Craigslist. The resale shops, well Once Upon a Child, gives $0.20-0.40 on the dollar for the clothing value. I have sold groups or 'lots' of clothing of one size for a set price and get more of a response than if selling one piece at a time. But a really nice outfit or pair of shoes will sell by itself, too. Maybe try the resale shops and see if you are happy with what they will give you. I am not sure where you live, but in Arlington we have Kid to Kid and Once Upon a Child closed. Platos Closet is a good place if you have name brand clothing. I googled and found this site which lists other resale shops in the DFW area http://www.consignmentdallas.com/list_clothing.htm
Here is a few more:

I take my kids' clothes to Kid to Kid in Arlington, off Cooper and Arbrook. The smaller women's clothes go to Rerun Resale on Park Row in west Arlington. There are many places that will do consignment. I am plus size, and I take those clothes to Plus Size Resale on the corner of Cooper and Sublett in Arlington or to North's Plus Resale shop on Arkansas and Park Springs. They don't pay much, but I find that I get more than I would at a garage sale. They are, however, quite picky about what they will take. Good luck! I have been in your situation and it hurts. God Bless You, B.

Check out Kid to Kid, they have locations all over. Look up resale in the yellow pages and you can call locations close to you to check their policies. Good luck.

The resale shops will only give you a small percentage of their sale price. If you need $$ immediately try Craigslist and sell in bulk (or single pieces, if they are really nice).
If you can afford to wait just a little bit, the very best place to sell kids clothing and maternity clothes and toys, kids accessories, decor, etc and nice furniture, is the JUST BETWEEN FRIENDS (JBF) Sale. They have them every 6 months and you will earn between 65% and 75% on each of your items. You do have to hang and price your items yourself, but it's worth it! I always make a ton of money and it's worth the effort. Check out JBFSale.com (I think) or Google it....
Hope this helps,

For the kids clothes take them to Kid to Kid in Bedford off of Central, by McDonalds. For your clothes, you could try Plato's Closet in Colleyville by Target. HTH

I am so sorry to hear about your situation. I will definitely keep you in my prayers. You might want to try Kelly's Kloset. Their site is: http://www.kellyskloset.com/
They are at 6500 Denton Hwy / 377 Suite B2, Watauga, TX, 76148 and close to NRH.

For the kids clothes, take them to kid to kid. I love that place! Also, you might have a Unce upon a child near you. Look online. As far as your clothes go, google consignment shops with your zip code or city. I'm sure it'll bring something up.

Garage Sale might put more money in your pocket faster. If you price t-shirts at a dollar and shirts at 1-2 dollars and shoes and jeans at 3-4 dollars, it adds up fast. People are looking for bargins now and this might net you more than the resale shops in the lond run. Good luck!
