Is there anything sweeter than baby clothes?
From the little baby socks to the hats and tiny gloves, everything is adorable. As a mother, these precious little things can be hard to part with. However, over time (and your children get older), their things get bigger and you run out of space.
So when you’re ready to let go of some of your kids’ cute little baby clothes, here is a list of the best places to sell baby clothes.
Where can you sell used baby clothes
I remember sitting on the couch before my first son was born, carefully folding all the tiny pieces together Baby clothes that I bought in preparation. I literally cried with joy when I went with this one Baby socks because I couldn’t believe that I would bring a life into the world with such small feet. My little one did not disappoint. He had the cutest baby feet I’ve ever seen. Of course, I’m a prejudiced mom!
As a minimalist mom, I didn’t overcrowd newborn clothes. And that’s a good thing, because other people like to buy baby outfits for toddlers. We were given so much baby clothes that our son couldn’t even wear them until he was out of newborn size. This left us with a lot of little-used or never-used baby clothes. At this point, I started looking for places where baby clothes could be sold.
thredUp is an online consignment and thrift store that sells clothing and accessories for women and children. It offers sellers a “cleaning kit” that allows you to free up space in your closet by filling a thredUp bag full of carefully used items that you no longer need. thredUp even provides the shipping label so all you have to do is take the kit to FedEx or USPS. When your items sell, you can cash out or receive a shopping credit.
Poshmark is another online consignment store that sells clothes, handbags, shoes, and accessories for the whole family. To become a seller at Poshmark, all you have to do is take a picture of the item you want to sell and upload it. Then share your listing with your network so buyers can discover your items. When someone wants to buy your item, Poshmark will send you a prepaid label and you will earn cash when your item is delivered.
Selling baby clothes on the Facebook marketplace is another great option. Go through your baby clothes and choose the ones that are in good condition or that still have the tags on. Next, take some high quality pictures to showcase the clothes. Now open the Facebook Marketplace and click on the “Create New Entry” tab on the left side of your screen. From here you can upload your photo and add the price and other item details.
The real real
If your baby (or generous mother-in-law) has a thing for designer clothes, The Real Real might be the place for you. Think Gucci rompers or Burberry summer dresses. Before you can start selling, you will need to provide some personal information including your name, email address, phone number, and zip code. Next, you can choose to make a “concierge appointment” where you can have your items picked up from your home, or you can print out a free shopping label and ship your items.
Sales outlets of used baby equipment
If you have a closet or garage full of old baby equipment like strollers, baby carriers, monitors, and more, selling all of these items can also help free up some space.
If you’re looking to sell some of your used baby equipment, Craigslist is a great place to start. To list an item, simply select the type of posting (for sale by the owner), choose a category for your listing (“Baby and Kids'” or what is most relevant), then fill in all the item details, including a picture of the item. If a buyer is interested in your baby equipment, they will get in touch and you can agree on a price or decide if you want to meet.
Once upon a time there was a child
Once Upon a Child is one of my go-to places when I want to sell baby clothes or equipment. Once Upon a Child accepts everything from baby and kids clothes to costumes, dance clothes, shoes, toys, books, games and all baby equipment. It’s a great one-stop shop if you’re looking to sell your used goods and get new items for your kids. To sell, just go to the nearest retail store and a store employee will review your items and provide you with a quote. If you accept the offer, you will be paid in cash on site.
If you’re looking for a super convenient way, your used baby equipment, GoodBuy Gear is an excellent option. After you’ve selected the items you want to sell, you can contact GoodBuy Gear to schedule an appointment to collect your belongings. You don’t have to leave your home. GoodBye Gear staff will clean and review your items, take the photos, and list yours second hand Equipment online, and they even recommend pricing. Get up to 80% off the sale price if your item sells, or 90% when you use GoodBuy Bucks (business credit). For this convenience, I personally like to pay the 10% to 20% commission.
Sell these baby things and take your place back
When discussing whether to sell your used baby clothes and equipment, there are many benefits. Not only can you take back some of your storage space, but you can put money in your pocket as well. And if you’re debating, don’t wait too long: many websites prefer newer, trendier items than those that have been in your garage or storage cabinet for five years!
