A Hidden Gem: Plato’s Closet

If you’re anything like me, you shop endlessly only to realize that your newest purchases don’t fit in your closet. This calls for a closet clean out. I do this 4-5 times a year. I clean out and reorganize my closet with things that I’ll actually wear. I get rid of items that are worn, not in style, don’t fit, etc; When I’m all done, I have about 6 bags usually full of purses, clothes, shoes and accessories! What do I do with all this? I SELL IT. Yes, I sell it back to none other than Plato’s Closet. They give me cash and I can go shopping for new items, total win win.


Plato’s Closet is a store that buys and sells latest trends, clothing and accessories for teens and twenty something guys and girls. They have locations all over the US! I really do love this place because it’s easy and they give you money for your clothes. I’ve gotten up to $350 for my stuff once !


How It Works: 

1. Bring in your gently used brand name clothing and accessories.

2. A buyer will review your items while you check out the store or you can leave and come back.

3. The buyer will create on offer for you based on style, condition, brand and store’s stock levels.

4. You can accept or decline the offer. Once you accept it, you leave with a handful of cash and a happy feeling.

You can go online and see what your local Plato’s is buying so you have a better idea of what to bring. This is a great option for everyone who needs some extra cash instead of just throwing the clothes out or giving it away.

Now I will say sometimes they rip you off. But, I just decline the offer and go on my merry way. If you are bring top designer items, bring a receipt or something to prove it’s authentic, they’ll give you more money that way!

Have you tried Plato’s before? Let me know whatcha think!
