Finding Gently Worn Clothing

Finding High Quality Gently Worn Clothing

More and more people are beginning to realize the value of buying recycled or gently worn garments.  This is a great way to find affordable casual clothing that’s in great condition. There are many different places where gently worn garments can be purchased.  However, the three that we’re about to show you tend to consistently offer the best selections-at the lowest cost.

The great thing about buying gently worn clothing is that it allows you to add significantly more clothing to your wardrobe than you could if the clothing was new. When it comes to doing this it’s difficult to beat the value offered by consignment stores, online marketplaces and yard sales.

Consignment Stores

Consignment stores are usually the first place that you think about when it comes to finding gently worn garments.  One reason for their popularity could be that since they will pay for your gently worn items they’re commonly recommended as the first place that you take your gently worn clothes to when you’re updating your wardrobe. Although the selection at consignment stores can be limited at times, great finds await those who make them part of their regular shopping routine.

Online Market Places

Online marketplaces tend to have the widest selection of gently worn garments because they are not confined to a show room. The only downside to purchasing gently worn-clothing online is that you can’t inspect it for yourself.  Instead, you must rely on the information provided by the seller to make your decision.  Just remember to check the return policy before buying gently worn garments online.  This can safeguard you in the event that the item doesn’t meet your expectations.

Yard Sales

Yard sales (also known as garage sales) are another excellent source of gently worn garments. Shopping at yard sales is a bit different from the other two places that we mention in that they can take much more time and effort. The reason is that they’re almost always spread out across a city, which means that visiting each and every yard sale can be highly time consuming. One way to avoid spending an exorbitant amount of time at yard sales is to do yard sale shopping in your own neighborhood.  Since the outfits usually haven’t been worn very often, you’re almost certain to come across multiple near-perfect finds there.  Also, sometimes churches or neighborhoods will have a giant combined yard sale.  Look for these at it can save you a lot of time in scouting out the deals.

Just in case these methods that we mentioned above do not yield any fruit for you, there is one more option: Rock Bottom T-Shirts.  With us you can get brand new highly affordable casual clothing for the entire family, at prices that are almost as low as you’d expect to pay for gently used clothing.
