If you have 10 or more pieces in the same size you'd do better selling them as a lot. I made $40-$70 a lot depending on name brand and amount of pieces. Most of what I sold was Childrens Place. I also depends on their condition. Gently used stuff can sell high or low, depends on who see's you.

they range from xs to large, but they essentially all fit the same size with the exception to my dh's shirt you see up there. 

The designer ones are from when I was modeling in HS they let you keep the clothes you wear.  I know a few sell new for over $100.

i've never sold anything about a girls sz 8. So I'm not sure. but usually adult/juniors clothing sells low. They'll know it's used so no one wants to spend an arm and a leg, I'd start out at a $1 and overcharge on shipping LOL.

Another thing you might want to do....make them look more appealing in the pictures. Don't use grass as a background...and take the wrinkles out of the clothes. The better the pictures look...the more you usually can get. Hope that didn't come out like they aren't good clothes...it's just that people are buying these things from appearance only :)

I thought about it, but it sounded like a lot of work.  lol Maybe I should re-do the pics. 

I have about 5-6 pictures of each item to make sure I got all the details.
