Welcome to your online wardrobe
Clothes for Sale is an online marketplace where you can:
- convert your new or preloved clothes into cash
- find that perfect outfit
- manage all your listings and payments in one place
- be your own fashion boss selling or renting clothes
How do I make money from my wardrobe?
By adding your PayPal or bank account details you can be paid for selling the clothes that are in your wardrobe (or on the floor, or in that plastic bag in the corner of your room).
What makes Clothes for Sale different?
Unlike other online marketplaces, Clothes for Sale is designed specifically for the sale of clothes and accessories (such as bags, shoes and jewellery etc.). Yes, we do include menswear - although our community is predominantly made up of women.
Many of you would know of the multiple Facebook groups that exist to buy and sell clothes. Some are huge, others small. There are groups from high fashion to baby wear. Clothes for Sale is a one-stop shop for all your listings and payments.
Members can comment on listings, as well as privately contact one another. If users like the style of another member, they can follow them and be the first to hear about their new listings!
Our online payments also mean that those first in are best dressed, literally!
The maps also make it easy to connect with people near you.
It's free to join and there are no fees for buyers.
What was the inspiration for Clothes for Sale?
Our founder Caris, was inspired by separate but ultimately complementary events - the disability sector, a local fashion designer (her sister) and, as mentioned above, Facebook. The idea first came to her while setting up Care Collective - a disability social enterprise - learning the ropes of designing websites and understanding user experiences. Caris wanted a service like Clothes for Sale - but it didn't exist, so that’s how the site was born! She registered the domain in April 2016.
With Caris busy running her social enterprise, I purchased the site in October 2018 to run alongside my other business Mint Preloved. My goal is to continue to build Clothes for Sale into a sustainable online community where Australians can easily buy, sell and rent preloved clothes.
Happy shopping and selling!
