Has anyone made a good score in the new clothing area?

Wife and I got a unit last week that was someone's discount store and had 5 rubbermaid bins full of name brand, new, tagged clothing (Nautica, Ralph Lauren, Levis, Gap, True Religion, etc..) and 3 bins worth of new or like new shoes (Timberland, Nike, Adidas) including 2 pairs of Air Jordans.  Unit also had a lot of NIB costume jewelry and a few watches with some bits of sterling silver mixed in. I have picked a few of the better items and have them on eBay right now, the rest I'll save for garage sale season and sell it off for between $2-20 a piece. Conservatively we should turn a $225 unit into at least $1000 at the end of the day but optimistically we could see $1700-2000!!

Anyone know any other way besides eBay and garage sales for shoes and clothes? Would love to find a store that pays (even if just a fraction of value) just to unload it all at once, liquidate, and BUY SOME MORE!

eBay is definitely the place to sell the expensive shoes. Someone might be looking for those Jordans in that size and be willing to pay top dollar. I have always had good luck with eBay and designer shoes.

You could try high end resale shops or put an ad on Craigslist for the entire lot. There are other resellers that specialize in shoes and designer clothing and they might buy them from you if they think they can make a profit.

platos closet is a good backup resource but they are super picky about what they take and they pay near nothing. ive used them before i normally take the store credit as its nearly double the cash amount and use it to buy clothes for myself.

I have tried to sell clothing at Plato's Closet a few times with no luck. I brought in some really nice Polos, Hilfiger, Nautica, etc., and they didn't want them. Some of them were even brand new with tags. I agree, they are really picky. They just want the trendy teenie bopper stuff like Abercrombie and Aeropostale. I used to have stock in Aeropostale before it got big. I made some money on it and sold it all. I wish I would have held on to it!  :-[

Yeah, Plato's Closet was a big waste of time. I brought 2 bins full of new with tags brand name stuff (Levi's, Nautica, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, etc..) and they only offered to buy 2 pieces for a grand total of $4.25.  They only take stuff that is a season old or less regardless of quality or condition.

Wow, sorry to waste your time!

Yours is a total clothes nazi.  Mine is picky but not that bad!
