No babies for me yet, but this sounds like a great deal. Good luck!

You might want to try posting this in Classifieds instead/as well 🙂

Also, if you are looking to exchange for the next size up, I use this clothing exchange website:  http://www.thredup.com.  You can join for free and exchange one box of clothes for a new box of clothes (you choose the gender, size, and season).  It’s worked out really well for me, so far, so it might be worth a look!

Good luck!

@Mrs. Spring:

I’m curious about this.

how can you be sure about the cleaniless and quality of the clothes?

I know the site states “gently used” but what happens when you get a box of clothes that is NOT gently used. And it’s stained etc that a wash won’t get rid of? Can you return?

Do they state what is IN the box?

Thanks!

@regberadaisy: What you do is you send a box of your clothes to the thred up company. Workers sort through the clothes you included in the box and decide what can be sold again. Then they put everything together from different shipments (newborn girls in one box, 12mo girls in another [some people send various sizes and gender colors to the company, not one shipment of 12 mo and another of newborn– that would be ignorant and wasteful] and sell the boxes like that). You’re not getting clothes straight from someone across the country, you’re getting clothes from the company after they’ve been sorted and what-not. It’s not like ebay. 🙂

At least this is my interpretation of the site.

@firsttimemom:  No that is not how it works.  You are getting clothes directly from one seller.  And when you send a box, you send it directly to the buyer, not to the company.

@regberadaisy:  Some of the responsibility in getting a good box of clothes rests with the buyer.  It’s up to the buyer to decide if you want to only buy from a well-rated seller or if you want to take a chance from a new, unrated seller.  Some sellers have been around a while and have fantastic ratings, so you have an excellent chance of good quality clothes from them.

ThredUp also has some quality assurance practices in place.  They “buy” random boxes to do quality assurance checks.  Also, each buyer is required to review each box they receive.  All the reviews are read by ThredUp, which looks for unsatisfactrory reviews.  If a sender is found to have unacceptable items (torn, stained, ripped, etc…) they are warned for the first offense.  If they get several offenses, they are banned from the site.

Finally, I’m not sure if this is a ThredUp policy or not, but I’ve seen sellers on there request to “buy” their box back from unsatisfied buyers.  It allows the unsatisfied buyer to send back the unacceptable clothes and get a new box for free.  You can read more about the website’s quality assurance here.

ETA:  Each listing lists the gender, size, season, brand names, number and type of clothing and most common colors of the clothes in the box.  Most listings include a detailed description of each article of clothing, as well.  Some listings even include a link to a photo of all the clothes in the box (which can be very helpful!).
