Make Money Selling Children's Winter Clothing
The time is now! If you have these items, get them listed. If you don't have them, put them on your radar as a "be on the lookout" item at garage sales, thrift stores, and consignment sales. Although it is still warm in many parts of the country, these children's winter items are beginning to sell quickly as those in colder climates are preparing for winter.
Here are some recently sold listings for snow suits. Brands to look for here include Columbia, The North Face, LL Bean, Land's End, Gap, and Patagonia. We usually find these for between $3-$5 at thrift stores and garage sales. Look at the selling prices - great profit margins!
Same goes for snow boots. Don't get stuck in your own head - just because it isn't cold enough to wear them where YOU are, doesn't mean nobody needs them now. (And people do buy ahead, knowing that winter is coming.) Brands to look for here include Uggs, Sorel, North Face, Keen, Bogs, Merrell, LL Bean, and Baffin. Children's shoes at our Goodwill cost $3, boots included.
There is plenty of money to be made selling children's winter clothing year round. Learn more about selling in this category by taking our course, "Selling Children's Clothing on eBay." We will teach you about the brands to look for, selling lots vs individual pieces, new vs used, how to get deeper discounts buying children's clothing for resale, and selling on consignment. Classes for September are on Monday 9/16 at 11 AM, and Sunday 9/29 at 6 PM. A great class for moms and dads who have a steady supply of outgrown children's clothing to sell. See the current class schedule here.
