Because of the few simple facts I shared above, we are a family that LOVES to find places to find good bargains on used clothing for our children. In the summer months it can be garage sales, and often times we've found some items at a local thrift store. However, there are times when it is hard to get out of the house...and well, it's not always extremely convenient and relaxing to browse through the shelves for the right items when you've got 4 little ones vying for your attention at the same time. :) That's why I've really come to enjoy online shopping. I can do it from home, at a time of day that is convenient for me. However, I have found it somewhat tricky to find a good Canadian source for doing online shopping for quality, used and affordably-priced clothing.
Recently I came across a Canadian-owned business that definitely caught my eye!! Perfect Threads is a online shop that sells 'like-new' and 'new' children's clothing at 80% off the retail price...and it gets even better than that! Perfect Threads not only has an amazing selection of high quality children's clothing in MANY sizes to choose from, but they also make the process very, very easy. If you have some boxes of too-small, like-new children's clothing sitting around your home you can send the clothing to Perfect Threads for FREE! Yep, they pay for all the shipping for you to get your clothing there...talk about hassle-free! Once they staff has assessed the clothing and determined their value, they will deposit this amount into your customer account. At this time you can use the money to shop on their website, or you can also donate it to a charity of your choice.
In addition to clothing, Perfect Threads also buys and sells one of the most popular toys EVER made...Lego! Currently we have two huge Lego fans in our home so the option to spend any money in our account on Lego is VERY attractive. Honestly? I am thrilled with how easy Perfect Threads makes it for families to be involved, get rid of the clothing that is no longer needed and instead replace it with something that you DO need...or that you want. :)
Perfect Threads also offers something that they call Bargain Boxes. We recently added one of these to our collection - a newborn one that will be perfect for our new little baby once he arrives! There are some really great deals available in the Bargain Boxes! The clothing in these boxes has no rips, no tears, but may have been well-loved by their previous owners. :) I was actually quite impressed with the quality of clothing that came in our bargain box and can't wait to put it all to use in a few weeks! Our older children all had a lot of fun browsing through the items in their size and picking one or two piece of clothing that they'd like to add to their wardrobe. Each of these items (including a fabulous NIKE summer windbreaker for our 7 year old son!) were in GREAT condition.
Perfect Threads is everything that families are looking for when it comes to quality used clothing at an affordable price. It's everything you're looking for when you're thinking you should really empty out those boxes of too-small clothing, and personally, I just can't see any 'faults' in the way they run their store. It's simple, it's convenient, and the clothing we received for our family was high-quality and will be loved all over again in our home before it is handed on to another child. Perfect Threads is a wonderful way to save money, make money and to save the planet (keeps the clothes out of landfills!)
