Jeans, Jeans, And More Jeans

Mar 15, 2008
Do you have a favorite pair of jeans? If you are like most shoppers, you probably have several. Fashion trends for jeans seem to change every year and the price of designer jeans keep increasing. Keeping up with the latest fashion trends in jeans can be expensive for shoppers. For affordable jeans shopping, consider shopping in used clothing stores.

Millions of people donate and sell their unwanted jeans every year to charities, resale shops, consignment shops, flea markets and to online auction sites. A large quantity of used jeans are available are barely used and some even have the original price tags on them. When you shop for used jeans in used clothing stores, you will find quality pieces at affordable prices. You might even find some designer labels and new styles.

To begin, search your local stores by looking in the Yellow Pages, using your online search engine, and asking for recommendations from your circle of friends. Prepare a list of stores that you would like to consider and then map out a schedule to visit them. If you are looking for newer jeans, consider visiting consignment shops first. Most items that you will find at a consignment shop are less than 5 years old and you can expect up to a 60% discount off of the retail price. If you are looking for a big bargain, begin by searching thrift stores and flea markets. You may need to be willing to hunt and search for a while, but you will be sure to find some great, inexpensive jeans. Next, search your local resale shops as they offer a mix of old and new used jeans and are normally more organized than a flea market or a thrift store.

While you are shopping, be sure to also take an inventory of your current jeans and styles. You may even find several pairs of jeans that you don't want anymore. If so, take them with you when you go shopping, sell them and use the proceeds to buy a different pair of jeans at the used clothing stores.

When you are shopping on an online auction or consignment site, used jeans are often sold in "Lots". Lots are groupings of like items that are sold as a single unit. The advantages of lots are that you get a large selection in a single purchase, but the disadvantage is that you may not always know what you are getting. Single items that are more expensive are typically sold individually, so the designer jeans are often sold this way. Be sure to read the item descriptions carefully so that you know what you are getting and take into consideration what the shipping costs are going to be in your overall sales price. When you are making your online purchases, be sure to use a secure site and a reputable company to ensure your security and your privacy.

Shopping for used jeans online and in physical used clothing stores is a great way to build your wardrobe, to keep up with the trends and to find affordable items.
