“Fashion Forward”, the Craigslist for Clothes: NOW CLOSED

UPDATE: Fashion Forward has closed. If you are looking for a similar platform to sell used clothing, Vinted is an option although unlike Fashion Forward, it is for-profit.

If you get bored of your clothes and like to send them to consignment shops so they get a second life in another closet while you recoup some cash, then you are going to love this website. Canadian and American shoppers can shop for AND sell apparel and accessories online for free at Fashion Forward, which is like Craiglist but just for fashion. It couldn’t be easier to use. I signed up for an account to sell my very fashion-forward sister-in-law Amanda’s purse. Inspired by one of the bags Anne Hathaway wears in The Devil Wears Prada, we thought perhaps this stylish piece would catch the eye of a frugal fashion-find-seeking online shopper.

When you create your account, you choose a location to let shoppers know where you are situated. I really like how local the site is; I could pick Etobicoke as my location instead of Toronto. Upload a picture of what you would like to sell, write a description, add your asking price, and then list it. Here’s the purse (which Amanda bought at Kataya) listed on the Fashion Forward site.

I see there is also a kids Canada Goose snow suit for sale right now in Alliston that has never been worn. There are many categories to shop, including wedding dresses, costumes and baby clothes. When you sell your stuff on Fashion Forward there are no fees and they take no commission, so you earn 100% of whatever your item sells for. Fashion Forward also supports the awesome charity New Circles which provides clothing to those who need it. So friends, there is your new way to waste time at work.
