Plato's Closet

For you frequent U.S shoppers who love to cross the line and snag a deal, I share with you Plato's Closet. A perfect place to turn clothes in for cash! Yes, that means no waiting around for months until your clothes actually sell on the rack to collect your coinage. Its as simple as clothes in exchange for U.S cash the same day you drop them off.

I am a huge believer in organization and friends of mine will tell you that my closet is no different. As soon as a piece is recognized as unworn for a given amount of time (I usually give it a max of 2 years) then something needs to be done about it. If the piece cost a pretty penny and is worth keeping for the sake of coming back into style or eventually turning vintage, then its obvious to hold on to. If a piece is good costume material for future dress up and theme parties then it gets put into the costume trunk to be used for future use. Now if a piece was inexpensive, outgrown, or simply something you have not worn in forever then why not make a pretty penny to put towards your next new purchase?

Plato's Closet has many locations and the closest one to us Vancouverites is in Bellingham, Washington a few stores up from Ross. If not a Vancouverite check the website to see if there is a Plato's Closet near you. Check out the website to see how it works. If making the trip down South and have unwanted clothes or shoes this is a great place to check out.

Tip: Depending on your items they do not always accept everything. Be sure to check out the website to see there most wanted items here. Also if you make the trip and are left over with a few unwanted pieces, there is a Value Village up the street where you can donate your left over items.

Nothing is better then using your easy earnings towards a guilt free purchase.
