    Which companies buy your old clothes?

    I had a bag through the letterbox a while back, saying that they buy your old clothes from you and pay x amount.

    Has anyone used these before, and who's the best payer?

    I've done the charity bags many times before, but now with there being many dodgy companies around thought I might get something back this time.

    My bag is from a company called 'Wear On Earth', based in Washington (North East). The bag states that they pay 40p per Kg.

    Had seen on Facebook that some people had sold their own clothes to similar companies, perhaps it's just up here where they are/were doing it.

    Had wondered if this was a new thing or if there were any better paying companies out there.

    Guess they got caught out by people adding a brick or 2 to get the weight … Guess they got caught out by people adding a brick or 2 to get the weight up :whistling:But you'd have to sell them a lot of cloths just to make a couple of quid



    Pity - got loads of bricks.

    Bags, I mean...:?

    Depending on the condition of clothes, I either:

    eBay it (for the really good condition stuff)
    Freecycle it (for the average condition stuff where there is a good amount to go)
    Stick it in the recycling things at Asda (for small amounts not worth putting on freecycle or selling)

    I've used the charity bags before, but they rarely collect ontime and it either gets wet or just left there forever.

    I rarely get charities leave bags with me, most of the bags are left by … I rarely get charities leave bags with me, most of the bags are left by companies that say they sell the items to make profits for themselfs in the small print



    All the ones I've had have been for companies, with company registration numbers too not charity. They go straight in the bin.

    My opinion is take it into one of the charity shops or put it in the charity bins if you really want to help.

    Don't M&S mark them as 30% off and sell them as new to their staff
