thredup thriftingOKAY so when I heard about thredUP I was intrigued. It’s an online thrift store where you can buy and sell gently used clothes. So I sent in a buncha clothes, they bought some from me to sell on the site & donated the rest. You can also have them send back the clothes they don’t accept, but I chose the donate option. I heard about this online thrifting/consignment store & hadda give it a try for myself! Here are my thoughts for anyone who’s heard about thredUP and gone ‘hm, wonder if that’s any good?’

donating clothesWHAT I SENT IN:

  • 4 dresses
  • 3 cardigans
  • 3 t-shirts
  • 3 tank tops
  • 3 long sleeves
  • 2 velour zip-ups
  • 2 pairs of jeans
  • 1 button-up shirt
  • 1 pair of shorts
  • 1 purse (or tote)thredup

thredup reviewSo I sent in 23 items and thredUP accepted 14 of them. Of the total 14 items they accepted, only the jeans, a dress, and velour zip-up have yet to sell. And as of right now, $20 is all I’ve made. 5 of the items were accepted on consignment, which basically means you get a percentage of the sale depending on how fast it sells & for what price. The other stuff they pay you a certain amount depending on what they think they can sell it for.

trying thredupHonestly, it seems much better for a buyer than for a seller. While thredUP has some cool clothes for really reasonable prices if you’re looking to shop, it might not really be worth it if you’re actually trying to earn some extra money.


It’s a nice idea & it’s cool that you can thrift online & donate on the same site. If you’re planning on donating anyways, this is a good way to earn a few extra dollars, but I probably wouldn’t bother with thredUP again. I think I’d prefer just donating it all instead of having the 20 bucks.



COMMENT BELOW, let me know if you’ve ever tried thredUP & what you thought of it!

  1. I love thredup, but the selling aspect isn’t too friendly. You’d do better selling on Poshmark or Vinted. I recently saw that they are piecing together a marketplace (?). I think that may make a HUGE difference!


whaddya think?
