If you're looking for a party dress for your little girl, a perfectly preppy suit for your toddler boy, or winter clothes for your tween...do walk your fingers straight over to thredUP.com.
The San Francisco-based start-up has become a favorite children's clothing spot for our family. The gently used clothing items are available in sizes 12M-20 - and come neatly packaged in tissue paper and a cardboard box.
Overall, I would say the prices are comparable to buying new on a discounted rack at Target, JCPenney, Kohl's, or Sears - EXCEPT that the clothes are from better brands (meaning they're often cuter and will probably hold up longer).
I recently scored this adorable brown David Charles dress, with petticoat for $11.49. Our 3-year-old has received a million compliments about the detailing. David Charles dresses typically retail for $100-$500 EACH.
For everyday wear, I picked up this pair of like-new Calvin Klein Leggings, also for my 3-year-old. $3.99.
My one shopping tip is that you have to make quick decisions! When I bookmark items to "come back to them later," they're almost always gone. Since there is only one of every item, things move through the site very quickly!
WIN A $20 CREDIT TO THREDUP!
I usually find our items from the local Consignment sale - but I've been browsing ThredUP because I love the concept and I don't find everything I need here locally!
I used to stop in at our local consignment shop from time to time. Now that I have three little ones, however, I prefer the convenience of selling and shopping from home. ;)
I hope I win my son could use some new shirts!
It looks like they have great prices. I'll have to keep them in mind when my boys go to the next size up.
I think this would be great to clothe my 3 fast-growing boys. Thanks!
Wow! Great prices for those items!
I love ThredUp - I haven't shopped yet, but we've already sent in 2 bags, so we have a nice amount waiting in our account to buy some new duds for spring!
What a fun idea! I love it! Online vintage at GREAT prices! That dress IS amazing!
I've never actually tried ThreadUp because I was wondering how nice the clothes really are. However, that dress you pictured is gorgeous and makes me want to maybe change my mind!
Our experience has been that the clothes we purchase are in "like-new" condition. I appreciate that thredUP maintains high standards.
i've never used ThreadUp - but I am intrigued....with a closet full of baby girl clothes that no longer fit my youngster AND a baby boy on the way there are a lot of items I can trade in and a LOT of items we desperately need for our little guy!
Note that thredUP does not accept clothing NB-12M.
Congrats on your pregnancy, by the way! When are you due?
I love ThredUp! I got more money than I thought I would when I sent in some clothes!
I really do need to check them out. Thanks.
I keep meaning to try out this site. That dress you got is adorable. =)
I haven't checked this website out before, only heard you talk about. I think I'll check it out!
Cute stuff!! I found about 10 bazillion things my preschooler would look adorable in :)
I got a great box from them.
I just went to their website looking for winter dresses but mostly it was summer dresses - but I can understand. Cute clothes for good prices. I will check this out some more.
I love Thred-Up!
What a wonderful idea! We all know that the littles will out-grow before they grow out!!! :)
I haven't participated in ThredUp because I really don't have anything to trade in. I pass along all my daughter's clothes to my sister, and my boys clothes come from her son. I'll have to look into the option of buying only.
Those are great prices for those name brand clothing items
