  • I bought a pair of pats on etsy- but she custom makes them to the measurements you send her- they are great :)

    I've bought a couple things off ebay- MAKE suer you read the measurements and such and ASK if you are unsure about things... I had an issue with a jacket we bought my daughter that was listed as one size but was either labelled wrong- or listed wrong. It was WAY smaller than it was listed as. Shipping was too much to return it (for what we paid though, and I have lost weight since then so I can wear it)

    I am leery of buying shoes online- though I've seen a lot that I love- for decent prices

    I search by size and color mostly (I pretty much wear all black)

  • I have bought clothes in lots of off ebay before. Its usually a pretty good deal. And I keep the clothes I like and that fit, then take the rest down to a consignment store and trade them in on stuff I want. It works well for me.

  • I have bought shoes online from a random store and of course they came in 1 size too large and I couldn't wear them or i'd trip all over myself. I stopped shopping online though, there's really no need to go through all the work and money and then having to send back unless your planning an event.

    Facebook has online garage sales in my area so I stick to them but even so, most items are not what they seem to be, I have given so much to my daughter already.

    you really have to be there to buy.

    when buying usually I pick black just to be safe

  • The only pre-owned clothing I've purchased online was from and it was a curly lamb coat.

  • I don't know how I feel about used clothing. But I'm all about used cribs, strollers, furniture and toys. I just started posting and buying from this site my sister has had a lot of success with (both buying and selling) it's called reCrib. You should check it out! Definitely helpful for any Mom!
