Selling Tip~What Size Is It?

Did you ever find a great piece of clothing to sell but the size tag is missing?

Here’s a great chart to help you figure out the approximate size.  

Of course if the tag is missing, make sure that you include the measurements in the listing.


Thriftstore Item to Look For: Boden

Here’s a brand that I’ve had on my list for some time and just squeal with delight when I find in thrift stores:  Boden and Mini Boden (the children’s version of Boden.)

Not only are their items super cute  (I’m always tempted to keep them for our own closets), but they tend to sell fairly quickly and for a nice price too.

The first items I ever found that were Boden were a couple of skirts.  They were super cute and I priced them at $49.99 each.  Both were sold within the first week that I listed them.  I’ve found this brand in tops, sweaters, skirts, jackets, dresses, kids clothes (including tights.)  I don’t usually find a lot of this brand at one time, but I find it pretty frequently, and whenever I find it, I always toss it in my cart.

This is a brand that sells well, so when you find it, don’t under price yourself.  I’ve never had a Boden in my inventory for longer than a month.

Happy Treasure Hunting :)


How to Identify Brands by RN Number

Sometimes when I find a piece of clothing to sell, the brand label is missing. If I know it’s a quality item, I’ll purchase it and look up the RN number before I list it.

The RN number is issued by the Federal Trade Commission to companies that manufacture, sell, or distribute textiles. The FTC maintains a if you’d like to read further.

To look up the RN number

Find the RN number on the tag, enter it in the form and click find.

The website searches its database and tells you which company owns that RN number.

Identifying RN numbers helps when you have a great item to list but you’re unsure of the brand name.
