Baby clothes are outgrown it seems almost instantaneously. You put the clothes on the child and the next thing you look at them and they’ve outgrown them. Well, though this maybe a little dramatic, it is universally understood that most baby clothes are not in it for the long haul.
This means that many adults often find that they end up with a big pile of near perfect child’s clothes that they have no use for. If you don’t have any relations or friends with children, there’s nothing to do with them and no chance for hand me downs. Of course, if you’ve purchased high end items such as Mini A Ture clothing, then you will be happy to get a return on your investment.
One of the best ways to get a return on your small child’s outgrown clothes is to sell them on a classified advert site online such as Gumtree. These free listing sites are quite similar to eBay but there are a number of differences – the main one being it is not an auction format and works on similar lines to a classified advert paper.
Selling a small child’s clothes on Gumtree affords you access to a wide community of people who can find exactly what they are looking for with a few clicks of a mouse. This offers you significant potential to sell the items and allows you to do so in a fast, easy and anonymous manner.
You also get to set the price, something that you would not be able to do on eBay. Unlike the auction format where you will end up failing to get what you expect quite often, here you can decline offers and there is no reasons to sell unless you get the price you require.
One of the other benefits is that there are no insertion fees or commissions to pay because you sold an item on Gumtree. The site makes its money through advertising and other means and you have nothing to pay upon selling. It’s also a lot easier to list and sell on Gumtree and there are no complexities or terms and conditions when selling your Mini A Ture clothing.
