The “too small” pile in your kid’s closet has taken over—it’s time to consign. Let us be your guide to the best virtual marketplaces offering stylish, pint-sized gear at a fraction of the original price. From an app filled with outfit inspiration to a kid-powered operation, the digital storefronts in the album below make it easy to buy and sell everything from Gymboree to Bugaboo. Your wallet (and empty closet) will thank you.
This one is a no-brainer. Schoola was started by a mom and former teacher in 2013 with the goal of bringing paint brushes, gym equipment, and other desperately needed items to underfunded schools.
Buy from them: You can find clothing and accessories for babies, kids, juniors and women with specialty sections for petite, plus-size and maternity. Browse thousands of items at your own pace, or create a custom collection for seasons or brands. 40% of the sales proceeds (minus the cost of inbound shipping) is donated to a school of your choosing.
Sell to them: Simply box up new and gently used clothing (original retail value over $30), add the printable, pre-paid label and send them off. You can choose to receive $2 for the average online consignment payout or give $7.21 to a school of your choosing when you donate to Schoola.
Why you’ll love it: Over 30,000 schools have benefitted from Schoola clothing drives. The company has also partnered with Malala Fund, VH1 Save The Music Foundation and Girls on the Run. You can organize a clothing drive for your own school, and even earn reward points for telling others about Schoola.
