Garage sale and resale groups have become increasingly popular on Facebook. These groups allow parents to buy, sell, and trade kids’ clothes locally. Not only does this allow sellers to get a better price on their used clothes, it also allows buyers to get great bulk discounts on clothes they need for their kids.
Here are some tips for buying kid’s clothes on Facebook garage sale groups.
If you’re interested in something posted on a Facebook garage sale group, be sure to comment right away! These groups often use a line order to help prevent any arguments, which means you need to get your name on the list right away. After commenting, you can always back out if you end up deciding that the item just isn’t the right price for you.
Ask About Condition
Anytime something used is being sold, don’t forget to ask the seller about the condition. Not only should you specifically ask if the clothes have any stains or holes, you should also check to see if the clothes come from a smoke-free, pet-free home. Most sellers will be honest with you and let you know right away if something is wrong with it. You can then make your decision regarding the clothes.
Buy in Bulk
If a seller has multiple items or lots posted, try buying in bulk! Ask the seller if they offer a discount if you purchase all of their items. Many sellers will give you a great deal so that they only have to meet with one buyer as opposed to multiple meets with buyers who may or may not show up. By buying in bulk, you can get an even better deal on an already good price.
Make a Good Impression
If you have a good experience with a seller, make sure you make a good impression on them too. Be sure to show up at the meet on time with the agreed upon amount. By making a good impression on the seller, you can suggest that the next time they have something for sale that they contact you first before posting it on the group. If they’re selling clothes that your kids are in, they obviously have children who are older, which means that they will probably sell clothes each time their kids move up a size. This can make it easier for you to find used clothes in good condition at a great price.
