Last night, I hosted a party for a few of my mom friends to introduce the app to buy and sell kids clothing & gear: VintedKids. This app has 11 million users in 8 countries worldwide and adds 11,000 new users each day. VintedKids understand that time is the most crucial thing moms value- that is why they make selling clothes quick and easy. I have tried selling my kids clothing a few other ways- eBay, through a Virtual Yard Sale, and swapping with friends- and this has been the easiest and most lucrative method I have found.
I sold my first item a few weeks ago- an adorable Gap Kids dress that Charlotte grew out of before she could wear. I listed it for $8 (retail price was $34.99)- I always price to sell things quickly. Within a couple of days, the item sold and I received the notification. All I had to do was print out the shipping label, slap it on an envelope and put it out for the postman. No trip to UPS, no trips to the post office, no scales. I also liked the fact that I could easily communicate with the buyer and answer any questions she had before I shipped it.
My friends snapped photos of the items they wanted to sell, and of course we swapped clothes as well.
Cecilia’s daughter Lucy is Charlotte’s BFF (and they are 2 years old, so we kind of told them they had to be best friends), but they have different taste in clothing. Lucy likes leggings and t-shirts, and Charlotte likes dresses and tights. So, Charlotte was able to score this adorable OshKosh dress in our swap.
In order to list an item, you simply follow the prompts. As for pricing, you can search the app to see how much similar items are selling for. After your item sells, you have 5 days to ship it. Once the buyer confirms receipt and is satisfied, the payment is transferred to your account.
Right now, VintedKids is offering an incredible 0% for selling- so if you list an item for $10, the buyer pays $10 + the shipping fee and you receive $10 once the item is sold! I don’t know how much longer the promo will last, but I am listing all of my items ASAP so I can take advantage.
VintedKids was featured on Windy City Live today (Sara Fisher rocked it!), as well as Chicago Parent and Red Tricycle!
To check out the app and start buying and selling, visit the website www.vintedkids.com or download the app for Android and iOS.
Thank you to VintedKids for sponsoring our party!
what size is your photo tent? It looks bigger than mine, so I might want to upgrade! Fun party, looking forward to hosting mine!
Thanks!!! You will have a blast- I had a martini tasting that was a ton of fun as well 🙂 Not sure of the exact size of my tent, but I think the whole package including 4 backdrops, a tripod and 3 lights was around $50. Have fun!
great idea on the martini tasting, I'm always up for *tasting* vodka. 😉
What a great fun night and what a great app!
I can't believe how big Charlotte is getting! I miss you! Hopefully the weather will warm-up soon and we can all get out and get together 🙂 XO XO
