Well then, your closet is like everyone else’s! But it doesn’t have to be.
Boulder has more than it’s fair share of clothing recyclers and consignment shops. They’re the perfect location to unload your closet, trade-in (or even sell!) your don’t-wants and make room in your closet for the must-haves.
Common Threads: Located in central Boulder, Common Threads is an upscale clothing recycler and consignment boutique after the best of the best in your closet. They’re more style-oriented than brand-oriented, but condition is key. They offer consignors a 50/50 split on all items accepted and consignment is for 45 days. They’re exclusively women’s fashions and accessories.
Plato’s Closet: Plato’s Closet targets teen and college student fashions. It’s a great place for students to do wardrobe swaps. Just bring in your old-to-you items. They’ll sort through your selections and offer you two prices for what they’d like to keep: a cash price for sale and an in-store credit price. They sell both guys and gals clothing, so guys — don’t be shy!
Buffalo Exchange: Buffalo Exchange is a bit more upscale than Plato’s Closet but works in the same way. Just bring in your — guy or gal — clothing, shoes, and accessories. They’ll offer you a cash (sale) or in-store credit price for your goods. Keep in mind that the items at Buffalo Exchange are all generally in very good condition. They’re pretty picky about what they take!
Rags: Up in North Boulder, you’ll find Rags — another one of Boulder’s upscale consignment boutiques. They’re very forthcoming about the brands they accept (and those they don’t), and offer consignors a 60/40 split (40% to you) on all items they decide to take. They’ve just launched a new mobile consignment service, too — they’ll come to you and pick up your goods!
Hip Consignment: Hip is where you want to go if you’re a fashionista happy to spend coin on your wardrobe. They just might be happy to take some of your closet off your hands! You can review the brands they generally do not accept here. They offer consignors a 60/40 split (40% of the ultimate sale price to you).
