Swap.com Kids' Consignment (online!)

This post brought to you by Swap.com - Kids' Consignment. All opinions are 100% mine.


Swap.com - Kids' Consignment is a consignment shop for children, and it's completely online! Swap.com carries children's clothing, baby gear, games, DVDs, etc. What makes this store different is that although the owners own and price the items, Swap.com handles all of the inspection, quality grading, photography, storage, & shipping and handling. Swap.com provides a neutral middle-man if you will, and a great way to help ensure listings, especially rankings! are genuine. Swap.com earns $1 and 20% commission for all sales.

Swap.com is a place where you can  for a nice price, and every item comes with a 100% hassle-free refund policy.

I just poked around the site a bit and found some cute things very reasonably priced, right from the get-go. There were sweet Mickey Mouse overalls, pretty party dresses, fun summer outfits, and I was also very pleased to come across a 3-book set I know my son would love (for just $5). Swap.com currently has over 50,000 items in inventory, and all items are shipped within one business day.

I think it's a great alternative to a yard sale (if you're like me and do not like to host those), and it's also a great way to de-clutter your home (Swap.com provides you a label to ship your goods to them, and they store it from then on in). Spring Cleaning? Summer Purging?  Whatever the case may be, it's definitely a site worth taking a look at (whether you are a buyer or a seller), to see if it's a good fit for your wants or needs.

That is definitely a good alternative to selling my boys stuff on Craigslist!!!

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? said...

What a great idea. I am terrible about consigning because I don't want to have to go somewhere.

Liz Mays said...

Not only is it better money than a yard sale, but a heck of a lot less work. It's actually a great idea!

Krystal Butherus said...

Swap is awesome! It is so handy. I am using them for sure.

Pat Hatt said...

A great idea indeed

alissa apel said...

I so need to look into this! I have stuff that I want gone.

debdenny said...

This is a great option for parendts. Kids grow so fast.

Patty Woodland said...

What a great idea - I mean really, most kids don't wear things for that long before they grow out of them

GayNYCDad said...

I never knew about Swap. I get rid of good quality clothes all the time, thanks for the info!

Diane Estrella said...

Great idea. I always find some way to pass my kids' clothes along. Why not help someone else out and yourself???

Izzy Grey said...

Interesting idea. I wish they had something like this for pet clothes, because I would be ALL OVER THAT.

MikiHope said...

I really have a slew of things I would love to get out of my apartment--will definitely be looking into this.

Kay Adeola said...

Thats a great idea,Doubt i could do it from the UK but maybe i could find something like this over here.

Growing Up Madison said...

I've never done a consignment but I've heard of them before. I'll have to check out this one.

Kristi Maloney said...

Can you watch your items once they are listed? To see if they sell? Sounds interesting!

Theresa Mahoney said...

I love buying my kids clothes from consignment. Allison actually asks all the time when we can get her more from them lol. Sounds like a really great service!

Anonymous said...

This is a fantastic idea! My mom used to buy our clothes from consignment, too! Nice name brands, and she didn't pay full price, because she said we would just grow out of them anyways LOL

Jenn@Sweet T Makes Three said...

I don't like to host yard sales either. This is a great idea!

mail4rosey said...

Good question, Kristi. I e-mailed them and will get back with you when they reply. :)

jaime said...

I hate finding the time to host a yard sale. I love shopping on consignment, though. What a great site!

Couponing Away Debt said...

I love this idea! I have a ton of kids clothes to sell.

Virginia Higgins said...

I can't wait to try this. I have a stack of stuff to swap.

Lindsey Paris said...

I love shopping consignment. And the 100% return policy is a great addition!

DeDa Studios said...

I love to shop consignment adn thrift stores. Checking this out for clothes for the kids. I hate buying new clothes to use as play clothes

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

I have a bunch of stuff that I need to sort through and get rid off. This is way better than a garage sale and Craigs List

mail4rosey said...

Here is their (very fast!) reply: "They can see all of their items on their account and get email notifications of each item that sold. Plus, they will get a summary of all items sold every two weeks when we run the PayPal payout."

Clancy Cash Harrison MS, RD, LDN said...

I always use consignment for my children. We buy and sell all of the time b/c it is great for the environment. Thank you for introducing this program to me. I am going to check it out. LOVE!!!

Lisa said...

I Think This Is Great Will Be Checking Them Out ASAP Thank You

Candace Taylor said...

Oh how neat! I would love to go shopping online for my kids clothes. They outgrow everything so quickly.

Ann B said...

What a great idea! I tend to hang on to everything so this would be a great way to declutter.

Janell said...

I love consignment shopping. This is awesome that it's online.

lisamc7 said...

I love shopping consignment, especially online. I haven't heard of Swap but am going to check them out right now - thanks!

Denise Gabbard said...

Going to share this post with my daughter and DIL. Would sure make things easier for them.

valmg said...

This sounds much simpler then selling through Craigslist or the classifieds! - Jenn @ The Rebel Chick

The Puzzled Palate said...

Looks like a much safer option than craigslist! I relly need to go through the kids' closets ASAP!

Ai Sakura said...

Thanks for sharing about it! There usually are some gems worth buying in sites like these :)

Lawna Noe said...

I am definitely going to check this out. I bet it would come in very handy in our household as we have four children.

Amanda & Jenni said...

I have not heard of swap.com before! I will have to check it out!

Pauline Cabrera said...

This is a great alternative for Craigslist. It has unique features that might even make it a better choice than other websites.

Anonymous said...

thats a cool alternative. i'll have to check it out

Christie C said...

Yes, definitely seems more secure and less sketchy than Craigslist. I love getting a good deal on kids clothes!

valmg said...

I hadn't heard of this before. This sounds much easier and safer then listing on Craigslist!

Cam said...

Yes! I must check them out. My kids go through clothes so fast, I could use a deal here and there.

Kathryn Rawson said...

I have so many of my children's clothes just folded and put away. And in the boy's clothes, I have twice as much (twins). This is a good way for me to pass them on without the trouble of garage sales.

Rachael Ebner said...

Swap.com sounds great! I'll have to keep this in mind for my grandkids. I'll tell my daughter about it.

becca said...

what a great way to get new clothes and to clean out clothes children have outgrown.

Mommy 2 J.A.M. said...

I am going to try this. I am always looking for new ways to save money.

Ashley Robinson said...

This is a BRILLIANT idea! I will have to pass it along to my sister, so she can find things for my nephew!

Amanda McMahon said...

I did swaps via diaperswappers before. I think it is great they have a site just for that so you can get kid's clothes and such at great deals.

Krissyar said...

I love this idea! I will have to look into it; I'm always looking for gently used items for the kids!

StacieinAtlanta said...

At the rate my kids grow, I really need to give this a try. This would be perfect for my home.

Janeane Davis said...

This is a great option. Often children outgrow their clothes before they wear them out. It is such a great idea for parents.

Onica MommyFactor said...

I think swapping is a great idea since kids grow quickly or sometimes you have extra clothing. I've been part of informal swaps for years now. Helps everyone!

Tee Mccluskey said...

I don't like using craigslist or ebay so this would be a good try for me! I think I may check this out this coming weekend!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

What a great idea. I am going to show this to my Daughter in Law. Kids grow out of their clothes so fast.
