    I have heaps of 22/24 to get rid of and need 18/20s
    I wondered if anyone was interested if I set up somewhere to buy and sell clothes?
    I know there's Ebay but once you take out fees etc its hardly worth it it seems?
    Or can we do it here?

    I don't think it's allowed on here. :(

    It's a shame because it could be useful for people, but I think it's too much hassle to moderate, especially if there are problems.

    Ahh yes probably. Might be worth me setting something up then, separate from here if people want?
    Be handy for clothes as we go down the sizes. I really need some smaller stuff but can't afford to buy lots of new stuff for a short while.

    Yes, you can give things away or exchange them, but not sell them. :)

    I found it Ruby, thanks! Would that not be harder to do though, suppose you give away loads and get nothing in return?

    Prob silly but i chucked every single big size i had once i grew out of it

    I bought tons of stuff off ebay cheaply to keep me going on the inbetween sizes.

    was the easiest thing really

    how about charity shops ?? I have bought most of my stuff whilst I am loosing from charity shops , I have gone down 5 sizes and there is no way I was buying all them clothes new !!!
    then you could sell your bigger stuff in the local paper maybe ?

    I think it works though because people would rather people on here got the stuff theyd grown out of rather than just dumping it or going to a charity shop. Its more a way to just get rid of your stuff as you go down the sizes and in the process help other people out a bit :)
