    Default Where to sell 2nd hand clothes?

    I have cupboards full of clothes I never wear and want to get rid of it. Does anyone know of shops/factories/whoever in the Cape Town area that buy 2nd hand clothes from the public?

    Edit: I could use the money, so donating it is unfortunately not an option.

    If you cant find a shop that will buy them, remember you can always donate to the poor.

    With winter coming up, give it a thought.

    Unless you really need the $$, rather look for a place you can donate the stuff to. Especially with winter coming....

    You could also sell the clothes for cheap

    I use to sell shirts for R10 and jeans for R20, jerseys for R15 ect ect...

    But i agree if you dont need the cash donate it

    Devil,k sell it where? To whom? I want to get rid if it quickly, rather sell the lot to a factory or something, give them the black bags filled with T-shirts etc. Just don't know where to start.

    Some of my friends had this trick a couple of years back, he had a suitcase full of his mom's old clothes and shoes and everything that he kept in the back of his car. Whenever we are partying and he needs some cash he makes a quick visit to the taxi rank and sells some stuff and off he goes. Very easy, off course it was a bit dodgy but all went fine.

    Sell it at the rank or give to your domestic to sell for you or you could always just donate and feel better about yourself.

    Good idea eh!

    or you could try CapeAds or Junkmail... Seriously!!! place an ad saying you have alot of cloths to sell, but then you sorta need to decide how you're going to sell them, you could mention in the ad that prices vary depending on item, but to make the ad more 'attractive' you could say it's cheap etc but just cloths you don't wear anymore.

    People scour the internet looking for second hand clothing to buy

    To the OP: be wary of scams!

    Men's Expensive used clothes are rather like diamonds.They have no real if any secondhand monetary value. Womens used designer clothing is different. There's a market. Only god knows why.

    There is a 2cnd hand clothes shop at the top of Long Street. If they don't buy from the public they will know who does. It's called "Second Time Around clothing emporium" according to the wwwinterwebnet.

    SECOND TIME AROUND. Tel : (021) 423-1674. Fax : N/A. Company Profile. Clothes - Second-hand ... Physical Address : 196 Long St Central Cape Town
