I've had okay luck selling items in my closet to this company. They take forever (average 3-4 weeks) to process your stuff and then there is a two week turn around time before you can "cash out." On top of that, they do not issue checks so you have to cash out using paypal which charges 2%. Mostly I was okay with this because these were clothes I would've donated or given away anyways. Also they let you consign handbags which have a bigger payout (70-50%). Recently I bought something from Thred Up. I saw a cute straw bag from Jcrew on the site and decided to use some of the credit in my account to purchase it. I figured since they inspect everything so thoroughly, I should be getting something like new or very gently used. Well I received it today and it's just gross!! There were stains in the lining, part of it was falling apart, and there is a weird "thrift store" odor to it if YKWIM. I would say this bag was in well used condition. So disappointed. Anyone have better luck buying from this site?
