December 28, 2023  How Clothing Consignment Works at Crossroads 

Clothing consignment is one the selling options at Crossroads stores that you might not know about.

We’re most popular for our on-the-spot cash and trade payouts, but for higher-end designer clothing and accessories, consignment can be a better match.

Consignment = Higher Cash Payouts

With consignment, you won’t get paid until your item sells–and trade credit isn’t offered–but cash payouts are higher on consignment items. That’s a key benefit that’s hard to overlook! Take a peek at our latest payout percentages. Notice that for some items you could earn up to 70%.

Like all items we sell, we’re looking for pre-loved pieces in excellent condition. Consignment is ideal for popular designer labels like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Vivienne Westwood, and Fendi. You know, just the most coveted designer labels out there!

How to Consign

When you visit your local Crossroads store to sell, simply ask the buyer about consignment. They’ll work with you to determine if it’s the best selling option for your piece.

Our well-trained buyers can also quote you on the best selling price for your item. You’ll be walked through the steps and asked to complete a consignment contract. The store takes care of the rest!

Have an item you think is perfect for consignment? Bring it into your local Crossroads to discuss. No appointment is necessary.

December 21, 2023  How to Sell Clothes for Cash 

Selling clothes for cash is quick and easy at Crossroads stores.

Stop In Anytime

Unlike online marketplaces or selling apps, you can bring in all your clothes to a Crossroads store and try to sell them all at once.

No individual photographs, no caption writing, no buyer questions, no post office runs!

Crossroads stores buy all day every day and don’t require an appointment. That makes it even more convenient.

You just stop in, sign up to sell on our waitlist, and wait to be called. Our trained buyers assess and purchase items on the spot.

And even better: you can collect your cash before you leave the store.

Another Option: Store Credit

When our buyers are done, you’ll have the option to take your payout as cash or trade. Trade is store credit that can be used at any Crossroads location, and it’s the perfect way to refresh your closet with new finds. Many of our sellers use trade as a way to “revolve” their wardrobes with excellent secondhand finds.

Crossroads Sell by Mail

Want cash for clothes but don’t have a Crossroads nearby, or you’re feeling short on time? Try our Sell by Mail program instead! Here’s how it works: order a bag online, fill it with the freshly-laundered and gently used items you want to sell, and send it off. It comes with a pre-paid postage label, and you can choose to have unpurchased items donated or returned to you.

Whichever selling method you choose, Crossroads makes it easy to sell your pre-loved clothes quickly.
