Recently we had a question from one of our Facebook Group members about what children’s labels are popular for resale on eBay. I just so happen to sell children’s clothing. I’ve been selling kids clothes for over 15 years now and haven’t waned in my love for it.
So I decided to compile a list of both store and top designer brands that you can sell on eBay and hopefully garner a nice profit. You can pick up children’s clothing and shoes at thrift stores, consignment shops and yard sales. You can search Craigslist and Freecycle or let friends and relatives know that you are interested in purchasing items for resale. You can also purchase at new stores when they have end of year clearance sales.
I compiled this list based on items I have sold or items I see other eBayers selling. This is important to note because some of these labels I have never seen (in person). You and I will not necessarily have access to the same brands. Your area and stores are different from mine and therefore the inventory you source will not look the same. It’s very easy for me to get Gap and Ralph Lauren and occasionally Hanna Andersson and Lilly Pulitzer. It’s more difficult for me to find Mini Boden or Oilily. So you will have to find things on this list that will work for your area and go from there.
What you should know when buying and selling used clothing:
1. Items sell better in sets or small lots of the same label.
2. It’s difficult to spot stains while outside at a yard sale. Natural lighting can hide the flaws, so be extra careful to look over garments.
3. I personally stay away from black and navy. It fades and stains; trust me on this.
4. Check buttons, zippers and snaps to make sure they work.
5. Check seams for rips.
6. Make sure the butt and knees don’t show excessive wear (or any wear).
7. List items year round no matter what season it is and offer International shipping.
8. Freshly launder these items and store in a clean and odor free area.
9. Good shoes are always popular; just make sure you clean them up. Wide shoes especially are hard to find.
10. And last but not least, take great photos for your listings. Don’t throw these gems on your carpet and call it a day. Treat your finds like the special items they are and your buyers will likely pay you handsomely for that!
Some items that I especially love to seek out are special occasion dresses, wool dress coats, down coats, GK Elite leotards and shoes.
