thredUP is the biggest online consignment store the world has ever seen, and now it’s giving all of us a gigantic holiday bonus: Keep 100% of every handbag you sell! thredUP boasts more than a million customers who buy and sell gently loved women’s, juniors and kids clothing and accessories. Like any store, thredUP typically takes a percentage of every sale—between 20% and 50%. But their #bagUP promotion, which extends through 12.31.14, nixes that fee and gives all proceeds back to the seller. Plus, they’ve upped the ante by hand-picking some drool-worthy designer handbags—including Fendi, Jimmy Choo and Stella McCartney—to giveaway to those who share deets about the thredUP #bagUP contest on Facebook.
Like everything at thredUP, the steps are super easy:
- Order a free Clean Out bag from the thredUP site and drop your handbag (as well as any other clothes or accessories you want to sell) inside.
- Give the Clean Out bag to your U.S. Postal Service carrier or drop it off at a FedEx Office location—it’s already pre-paid and pre-addressed.
- thredUP staff assesses and assigns a value to your bag, then photographs and posts it on the site. (Items that they don’t accept go to charity or textile recycling companies; you can also get it back by paying a $12.99 shipping fee.)
- Most items sell within 30 days and once your bag does, you get 100% of the sales price, redeemable as thredUP shopping credit or as cash through PayPal.
A survey performed by thredUP found that the average American woman owns 11 handbags and only 35% of us are wearing all of them. That’s money in your closet, people! So what are you waiting for? Click here to get started!
