    Another reality apparently
    my wife sells tons of used clothes on ebay. Just lists everything for 0.99, if it doesnt sell she gives it to goodwill, but even stuff we would usually throw out usually sells. Its amazing what people will buy on ebay sometimes.

    seems like there are sooo many clothing items listed on ebay though.. i'm worried that people might not see my listings

    tips? right now i just sell my clothes to my favorite local thrift shop in costa mesa [california] called deelux..then i try to sell the rest to buffalo exchange

    buffalo exchange gives you more for your clothes, but i only shop at deelux..so i prefer their store credit over buffalo exchange store credit

    it's around 50% store credit of whatever they'll sell it for at deelux... i think it's the same for buffalo exchange, but buffalo marks it up more..so you end up getting a little bit more from them

    or you can get cash, but it's 50% of however much store credit they would give you :/

    i recommend buffalo exchange as well. before i left i brought in a big shopping bag full of clothes and shoes - they took maybe a little more than half...and i came out with 80 bucks:bigthumb:

    it all depends on the buyer that day too...my friend who came with me had all streetwear/hypebeast stuff and he only made 40 bucks:mamoru:

    if you live in LA i don't recommend crossroads (on melrose). they were a bunch of wannabe ghey fashionistas who think that they are > you :ugh: i'm never bringing my clothes there.

    I HATE those elitist types. Closed minded hipsters. Kill em dead.

    one thing that i think everyone fumbles on is application. While it may work for one person, the same style might not suit yours.

    I know i've hit that road block a few times. Maybe a few times too many.
