Once or twice a year, I try to purge my closet of all of the clothes that either don't fit, are hopelessly outdated, stained or otherwise just been hanging around for too long. The items I can't seem to part with are those that I paid a lot of money for or the clothes that I never wore -- and they still have the tags to prove it. Usually, I donate these clothes to Goodwill, even though it pains me to throw such smart, stylish clothes in a garbage bag and dump them in a parking lot.
Anyway, a new company called Revolve Couture may help me not only get rid of some of my lightly used or new clothes, and I could make a few bucks doing it. Revolve Couture is an online consignment boutique specializing in designer wares. Consignors mail clothing, shoes and accessories to the company, and they sell them on ebay, charging a flat 33% commission (they'll pick up the clothes if you live within 10 miles of Greenwich, CT, where the company is based). If items are not sold, they are either mailed back to the owner at the consignor's expense or donated to Shop for a Cure.
