Kid's Clothes: Out with the Old, In with the Gently Used

Written by: Brooke

I just cleaned out my daughter's closet (taking care of my son's closet this weekend) and it really would be a shame to let some of her stylish, designer clothing go to waste. She has grown out of so many things that look brand new!

That's why I'm so glad I discovered Duds Because. They sell gently used, premium-brand children's clothing for a fraction of the retail cost. So, I love shopping! But, it's also a great platform to monetize items that you might normally give away. Giving is great, don't get me wrong. It's a win-win with Duds Because, you're STILL doing just that. They donate a significant portion of profits to children's programs with Feeding America and Harvesters.

Duds Because is having a trunk show!

Here are some FAQs that'll help you get started! It's super easy.
