CLOSED - Giveaway #3 - Thred Up - 2 winners!


I just recently found out about thred UP and I really like the concept!

Thred Up is a website where busy parents swap their kids' gently used outgrown clothing for clothes that fit. Let's face it, kids grow and they grow quick! I know mine do!

I ordered 2 boxes from Thred Up. The first box was packed with tons of clothes (21 items) and had a few items that my daughter will wear, but I was new to Thred Up and didn't know exactly how to pick a box, so I wanted to give it a second try. The 2nd box I ordered turned out my better.
Hint - look at how many stars and stylies that a person has and you can request a pic from the person and they will usually send you one if there isn't already a link.

Here is a pic of my second box:


12 items and I was very happy with them.

Browse boxes - you can browse by gender, size and season. They even have formal wear and Halloween costumes!!!

Pick a box
Pay $15.95 ($5 plus flat rate shipping cost of a medium USPS box) to get your box shipped right to your house!

Next - you fill a medium size USPS box (which are sent to you free of charge!) with your gently used clothing and list it on the site for someone else to pick. It is free to ship boxes to other people. They will pay the shipping. You will be sent a link to the shipping label and then you set the box out for the mailman. Very easy.

Thred Up carries size preemie to kid size 20.

Thred Up wants 2 readers to try Thred Up for free!!!! 2 winners will win a free pick plus shipping!

IMPORTANT - LEAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS FOR EACH COMMENT SO I CAN CONTACT YOU IF YOU WIN!!!!

Disclosure - I was given a thred up box to facilitate my review. I was not financially compensated. All opinions are 100% my own.
