ThredUP is a site where parents exchange gently worn kids clothing. You can set up a circle of friends across the country or shop from the "pool" of other registered users. You will simply choose the “box” of clothing that you wish to receive, then pay shipping and handling. Next you pack your own box (it will be shipped to you) of clothing to swap, and when someone choose’s your box, you print out a label and mail it. Remember, only the recipient pays shipping and handling.
Right now when you join (free) you will get your first box free except for shipping. Also, you can earn credit for trading clothes in high need sizes (and there are many).
I would love to hear from anyone who has tried this service. I just think it sounds like a great idea.
