When you look into your closet, do you see a purse you once loved but no longer wear, or the pair of jeans you don't quite fit into anymore? If so, your closet could use a good clearing out. Here are 11 resale sites where you can get rid of unwanted clothes in exchange for cash or credit—plus shop gently used designer finds at a serious discount.
Bib + Tuck2 of 12
Instead of earning cash for clothes you post on Bib + Tuck, you earn currency on the site to buy other people's high-quality cast-offs. The selection of budget-friendly clothing runs the gamut from indie brands to well-known labels. Also, you're in great company: Other sellers include designers like Yigal Azrouel and Mara Hoffman.
SHOP NOW: Vintage abstract print pants, $50, bibandtuck.com
