3kg for 3p

I have just put a pair of jeans on the kitchen scales (don't tell the mother) and they was 1kg to help put that in to perspective!

You would be better putting them on eBay for 1p & 1 postage per item at those sort of prices!

Re: Cash For Clothes

I'm not saying these shops arn't an option, they just wouldn't be my option (I know eBay like the back of my hand but fully understand not everyone does).

Out of interest what happens to a bag of clothes that are taken in to the shop? Where do the clothes go and where does the money go etc

Re: Cash For Clothes

In order to get enough old clothes to a shop like this would likely involve a drive, driving an ordinary car to a shop for this would likely cost more than a car full of clothes would pay.

I'm with Jx, I'd rather put them on Ebay, or simply give them away on Freecycle.
T-shirts become good usable rags.

IMO these type of places are all a big scam, just like the bags posted through my letterbox.

And I am with you on that one Matty ( who is Jx ? )

I do trust the source of most of the bags (registered charity ones), it`s the dodgy looking printed leaflet variety that ask you to fill bags with old clothes & other items, (for the `third world`) - attach their leaflet to bag and they will collect to distribute ... Odour of rodent detected - Usually request includes handbags, dvds , curtains etc. I would never scorn the genuine charities but the idea of someone in the unfortunate circumstances - starving, disease, homeless finding any use for a Prada handbag, Harry Potter box collection or last seasons curtains is beyond me.

Ok. They are going to be sold on, not literally shipped to areas of need and proceeds of sale will be donated for relief work. But can we question what percentage of sale price is donated ?? Very very little I fear

Re: Cash For Clothes

Eh? I thought JohnnyX posted on here? (hence jx). Saying he'd rather Ebay them.

From what I hear even most of those purporting to be from genuine charities are in fact not.
