So I run a non profit dance program through the club and for several years (while I was still SAHM) we had fundraised to purchase dance shoes, clothing, costumes to be re-used because a lot of parents did not have funds to provide these things for the program.
I have decided to go back to college and contribute to the working world and household income. So I do not have as much time to devote to the program like I did before (btw I was teaching as a volunteer 4 hours 4 days a week). Now I am stuck with a ton of dance clothes, shoes, and costumes barely worn some are brand new, some in good condition.
The one thing I did find the parents did like was being able to either TRADE shoes or buy things used for less cost. I have to find ways to sell off the stuff we won't be using anymore (We are going to stick with tees and shorts because they are cheapest) and been googling looking for exchange sites for fitness and dance wear. I am not finding much out there.
It happens to be that I am going back to school for my computer programming and administration associates and been doing web design for ten years now. I am thinking about opening both auction and exchange website allowing parents to sell off used dance clothing and costumes along with fitness clothing (Zumba and so forth) which can be really expensive. So my question is, would some of you be interested in a site like that? I am looking to set up a system you can search by location and purchase or exchange locally.
I did find that some towns have consignment or second hand stores strictly for dance and fitness wear. I am not finding many sites that are second hand though.
Ebay is way too expensive in my opinion.
