thredup thrifting

OKAY 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 & stuff, 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 & just HAD to 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?’ A review of my experience SELLING CLOTHES ON THREDUP.

thredup review

So 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 sold so far. And as of right now, $20 is what 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 thredup

Honestly, this online thrift store kinda seems better for the buyer than for the seller. It’s a really cool concept, but it might not really be worth it if you’re actually trying to earn some extra cash.

HOWEVER, If you’re planning on donating anyways, this is a great way to earn a few extra dollars at the same time. It’s cool that you can thrift online & donate used clothing, etc. on the same website. ALSO, you can use your earnings to look through thredUP & get some new-to-you fashion!


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




  1. Always really interested in these sites because I have wardrobe clear outs all the time and usually I’ll send it all to a charity shop or to some younger relatives of mine but I always wondered whether I could make a bit of cash from it. From your review ​it seems like its a lot of effort for not very much cash and like you say, you’d rather just donate it.


  2. I prefer to sell my clothes on facebook groups, especially if they are practically unused. I rather make a little more money from what I can and then donate what I cant sell. Its a nice concept though!


  3. I think $20 is great for selling clothes you don’t want any more & they donate the rest for you? That’s wonderful. I also think it’s cool how they show you your items all modeled on the mannequins and stuff haha.


    1. haha I guess it depends on how much you’d value those clothes, what you paid for them & how much or how little you wore them. but, yeah! doesn’t hurt to have an extra $20 & I love that hey donate for you! definitely 😊
