Thredup review

Our latest box full of clothing for the kids arrived last weekend, but I am just now getting around to writing about it. We love getting a ThredUp box in the door, and opening it up is so exciting because it always contains such beautiful clothes. I never even look at dresses, when I am out shopping for the kids, because the dresses I love for my little girl usually costs $30 and up, and it is rare to find any for less than $10. With ThredUp, I am able to get 8 dress for $30 before any discounts, and quite often they are in like-new condition. We have been ThredUp customers, since 2012 and I am thrilled to say that the quality of ThredUp’s clothes are just as great (if not better), as it was, when we first started shopping at ThredUp.

We’d paid $10 for this box, and as always it surpassed our expectations. The clothing were in impeccable condition, and much of it (more than we had originally believed) were new with tags. There were two uniform skirts and a uniform dress all new with tags, plus an OshKosh tank top new with tags as well.

Then there were our little girl’s winter jacket for next year, which I could not wait to see. She just need a light jacket, since we are in South Florida and only have a handful or two of colder days. The jacket was listed as a light jacket only, and it had a flaw star. I had inspected it up close with the magnifying glass feature at ThredUp, and I decided to go for it despite the flaw sign. It turned out that the flaw was a push button that had fallen up. However, since it is still attached to the other part of the push button, it is very simple to fix by hand. As an extra bonus, the “jacket” came with a dress in the same design and a pair of pair of bloomers….all for the price of $4.49! It is definitely one of my favorite pieces from ThredUp ever.

We also found a handsome button-down shirt for our oldest son in like-new condition. There were some pretty dresses, including a beautiful white and pink dress with flowers from Hartstrings that fits Bellamy Blue now, and there were also a a couple of new cardigans, as her size 12 months cardigans are getting too small and need to be passed on to a set of triplets in need.

I do not find much for my boys at ThredUp, but that’s because I can find some great clearance deals on boys clothes. Yes, there is clearance on girl’s clothes as well, but as I mentioned earlier, not on the beautiful dresses that I love for our little girl.

  1. I’ve never bought from them but I have sold through them and it was the worst. They claimed you’d get an email within 3 weeks and it was over a month before I got one. I had to email customer service and they were prompt in getting back to me which was good. It was around close to 7 weeks before I got my payout so I’d recommend emailing them and asking how long there time is before you request a bag.
