INOMommy has received an opportunity to participate in the launch of an exciting new service, thredUP kids! It’s a place for frugal, busy, and green moms to conveniently swap boxes of kids clothes online. Unlike many swap sites out there, thredUP does 95% of the leg work. Think – Netflix for kids’ clothes! The site will launch invite-only very soon, and those on “the list” will have a chance to swap their first box of kids clothes for free. INOMommy readers can sign-up here to be a part of the exclusive launch: http://bit.ly/bWutZ7
What can I do on thredUP?
Swap: Like Netflix, you can choose a box of gently used clothes you’d like to receive. Then, similar to eBay, you build virtual boxes of clothes that your kid no longer wears. Finally, like StubHub, thredUP enables and manages exchanges. Their marketplace facilitates exact matches, ensures quality, and remedies the lack of coordination that plagues offline clothing swaps.
Exchange with Friends: thredUP wants to make swapping with your friends easier without a price tag. Your thredUP “Inner Circle” allows for online exchanges with close friends. You can bring local friends into this group or reconnect and trade with long distance friends.
Go Green: Collectively, Americans discard two quadrillion pounds (that’s a two with fifteen zeros) of used clothes and textiles into landfills each year. thredUP lets you “up-cycle” your child’s wardrobe. By sharing what you already have, parents can make a huge step towards sustainable living. Save green and go green by swapping with like-minded moms.
Sell: thredUP allows you to sell boxes of clothes for cash. Tell thredUP about the gently used items your kid no longer wears. They will send you boxes and schedule the pick-up. Soon enough the clothes are out of your hair and replaced by money in your pocket.
Buy: No need to spend hours digging through consignment stores or hundreds of dollars on trendy baby gear. Head to thredUP and browse boxes of kid’s clothes. With 10 or more items in each box, thredUP makes it easy to buy quality clothing in bulk.
