Need To Sell Your Winter Clothes?

Jun 10, 2008
If you have just moved to a warm climate from a cold climate, chances are that you have a closet full of clothes that you will never wear again. Or, if you have accumulated too many winter clothes, you may be ready to get rid of some of them. Consider selling your used winter clothes by using an online auction site or consignment store. Online auction sites will sell your used winter clothes to the highest bidder and will require you to ship the items to the Buyer, often charging a small fee to list and sell the item.

Online consignment shops will allow you to post your winter clothing for sale on their site and will require a commission when the item is sold, generally a percentage of the item's sale price. Online consignment shops also require the Seller to ship the items to the Buyer. Consignment shops generally only accept clothing for a particular season, so if it is not before the winter season, hang on to your winter clothes for a few months before you try to sell them. There are several tips to consider for online used winter clothing success.

Pictures are said to be a thousand words. The picture of the clothing that you are going to list for sale is your first opportunity to make an impression with the Buyer. Buyers want to see what they are buying before they make the purchase. Taking a good picture is an important element to getting your used winter clothing items sold.

Try to use natural lighting and a neutral background when you are taking individual pictures of your clothing. You may also want to consider selling "lots" of winter clothes. A "lot" is a grouping of like clothing sold together as a single sale, instead of selling the items individually. When you are taking the item pictures, your goal is to have the quality and colors of the clothing POP for the online viewer. Use your own camera to take a picture to upload the picture to the online website. The next step is to choose a powerful listing title.

Here are a few topics and acronyms to consider when writing your title like: NWT (New with tags), NWOT (New without tags), Like New, Great Condition, Type of Clothing (pants, shirts, skirts, clothing), and the Size of the Clothing (S, M, L, XL). When choosing your title, consider browsing for other winter clothing items that are for sale and through previous items that have sold to generate effective title ideas.

You will now need to write your item descriptions. Be as detailed as possible when you are writing each description. Include a full description of the size since international sizes can vary. Also be sure to note an accurate description of the condition of the clothing. Your Buyer will not be happy if you leave out something that is important, like a tear for example, if it was not in the description. Also be sure to describe the fabric color and material since it is hard to tell what the clothing is made of, from a picture. You should also include the clothing tag information, as it may be of interest to the Buyer.

Once you have completed your preparation to list the items, you will need to choose a price for both the lots and the individual items. You should take into consideration the cost that you originally paid for the item, its current condition and what similar items are selling for when you select your own price. You are now ready to list your used winter clothing items for sale.
