Before the big move, I shipped my bag of consignment goodies off to ThredUp. The bag is a very generous size and I was able to fill it completely. It was sturdy but my only issue was that the adhesive strip was not sticky enough to stay closed. I’m glad I noticed this and taped the seal with packing tape. Otherwise, I am confident this bag would have exploded all over a UPS truck somewhere.
A few days before I mailed my bag. I received an email from ThredUp reminding me to fill my bag. The email was not automated. In fact, there was a reply option in case I was having any issues. I did respond and tell them that I was delayed because of the move. I am not sure if there is a response time limit.
I sent the bag out and about 10 days later, I recieved another email telling me the bag arrived safely at ThredUp and that my garments were being “carefully reviewed my a team of ThredUp moms.” I couldn’t help but feel a little judged by this. A group of women assessing my ability to keep clothing neat and clean. It’s like having my laundry and stain removal skills evaluated.
Now I wait to find out how much this stuff is worth and what happens next. In the meantime, I already have enough clothing to fill another ThredUp bag. It was so easy that even if it doesn’t pay much, it’s a little more in Scarlett’s piggy bank than was there before.
So far I am still impressed. If I had to make one request, I wish they took shoes. Otherwise, the customer service has been very interactive an helpful. I’m looking forward to phase 3.
