Thred Up!


I heard about Thred Up, new clothing swap site for kids from one of my favorite bloggers a few weeks ago. The idea is that you list groups of your clothing by season/size/gender, put it all in a medium flat rate USPS box, and when someone picks it, you mail it off to them using pre-paid postage from the site. You get to pick a box for every box someone picks of yours (you get a freebee when you start), and when you pick one, you pay the $13 for the shipping.

It sounded pretty cool, and I've gotten serious about de-cluttering around here, so I sorted through Joseph's things and listed 5 boxes of clothes.

So far I've received two boxes. Both have had pretty high quality items (Janie and Jack, Gymboree, Hanna Andersen, Polo, Carters, etc...), but the box I got today was a total jackpot! All of it is size 2T, so it should fit this in the winter/spring/summer seasons next year.

Two cute button up short sleeved shirts and a pair of chinos

Three adorable sweater vests (so preppy!)

One little boy suit (are you kidding me!?!) - So adorable
Four long-sleeved button up shirts

You should seriously consider signing up for this website if you have kids. It definitely seems worth it. It's a bit of a mystery what you'll get (the first box had nice stuff but wasn't totally my style) but it costs very little. If you get two or three nice things you are way ahead! It's a fast alternative to consignment shopping, and much better (and more environmentally friendly) than paying full price!

Plus, I need someone to grab my boxes so I can select more! Keep an eye out for infant boy boxes from Jennifer C.
