Crossroads Trading Company Introduces Selling by Mail
If you’ve ever tried to sell your clothes at one of L.A.’s consignment shops, you know the whole process: there’s usually a line, there’s always someone ready to judge your clothes, no matter how precious you think they are, and if you’re lucky, you’ve earned enough back to cover the gas it took you to get there in the first place. But as daunting as it all sounds, we find ourselves there again and again, casting off our out-of-season clothes and hoping for the best. But Crossroads Trading Company, one of our favorite spots to find surprise designer goods (when you’ve got the time, that is), is making the process a little less painful. With Sell by Mail, all you have to do is send off your clothes and wait.
The service, which is available now, streamlines the process of consignment and lets you do the entire process from your house. Just go online and request a bag.
Crossroads Trading Co. is always looking for in-season clothes that are gently used and on trend, so if you’ve got summer tops and cutoffs languishing on the floor of your closet, this is the time to do some summertime cleaning. The Sell by Mail Process still gives you 35% in cash or 50% in store credit for your clothes, and unlike some of those new tech-y startups that have been popping up online, there’s no algorithms or waiting. You get your cash or store credit back in just a few days, not a month. And the clothes that they don’t take? You’ll have to pay for shipping if you want them back, but Crossroads will be more than happy to donate them to charity, too.
