I’ve been hearing about a new consignment website called ThredUp in the Lululemon groups, mostly people inquiring wether or not it’s a good place to sell Lululemon. I haven’t researched the consigning end of a transaction on Thredup yet but I believe they send you a box where you can ship them your items, and you can also check online to see what similar items are being consigned for and what you can expect. I think this method works really well for those lululemon items that are valued at under $20 in the resale market and are not really worth your time listing individually on eBay.
This past summer, a rep from Thredup contacted me and asked me if I’d like to get a credit of $30 with them in order to make a purchase, and then if I’m happy with my purchase I could tell you guys about it. The reach out to me was because they have a pretty nice selection of Lululemon items as well as other activewear brands which they where wanting to promote to our community so it was a good fit. Instead of purchasing activewear though I was naughty and decided to make a game of consignment hunting and knock something off my fashion bucket list. I was also naughty for taking my time with this post and spending several months looking for something special. I’ve been needing to replace a pair of nude patent pumps that I damaged so every few days I would look on thredup for a luxury brand version of what I needed, since I’d never normally spend full price on a luxury brand. Valentino, LK Bennet, Manolo Blahnic, Jimmy Choo. I found lots of shoes I really loved for steals but I limited myself to getting something I needed – versatile nude court shoes.
These LK Bennet Sledge pumps I found retail for $345 USD. Guess how much I purchased them for!!….. well, as I mentioned above I had a $30 credit, and there was a summer promotion of 40% off your first $50. They where listed for a very reasonable $71.99 and truth be told, I would have happily paid that price for these shoes. With my $30 credit and 40% off discount my total was $19.18!!!
I picked them up yesterday a bit worried about the sizing and condition. They are a size 40EU and I’m a size 9, (so that would be sizing up to 9.5). The condition was perfect and it appears that they where only tried on once and maybe the person walked around the house. They are incredibly comfortable and the perfect size.
Now, if you want to browse around and do a bit of shopping, [[Sign Up Here]] and get a $10 credit to your account. I will also get a $10 credit for your sign up. Be patient and take your time shopping for exactly the perfect item. They upload products almost daily. I also have a coupon code to extend to you if you make a shoe purchase – SHOESS50, and this code gives you 50% off up to $50.
Right now I’m hunting for an Alo Yoga Moto Track Jacket in red that seems to be sold out everywhere. I’m hoping it will eventually make its way onto thredup where I can snatch it up.
*another thing to note is that ThredUP currently only ships to the US so I had to use my US shipping address and I needed customer service help to override my IP address location.
