Why Trying to Resell Your Clothes Is Always So Damn Embarrassing

We've all been there. You gather up a pile of your old clothes, throw them in that wrinkly blue Ikea bag, tote them across town to a thrift store, only to have almost all of them handed back to you. As Jaya Saxena writes in a piece on Racked today:

"I had a brilliant idea when I graduated college. Interning, living at home, and saving every penny I could to travel after the summer, I decided to take nearly all the clothing that wouldn’t fit into my suitcase to the Buffalo Exchange two blocks away. I assumed I’d make some money and lighten my load at the same time.

Instead, I found myself sitting through the specific but visceral agony of watching a 20-something woman much more fashionable than I go through my clothing and determine that, yes, she was much more fashionable. I saw every item in a new light. Oh god, why did I think that pink and white T-shirt was a good idea? Had I really been wearing that striped sweater for four years? Who let me buy that polka-dot going-out top? I spent an hour waiting, watching, deciding that I’d move to a nudist colony so I’d never have to think about clothing again.

In the end she offered me $4 for a shirt I had already bought secondhand, teal with a graphic of Steve Urkel on it. She suggested I take the rest to Goodwill in the tone that that one store clerk suggested Regina George could try Sears."

The good news? You're not alone. The bad news? There's not very much you can do to avoid the situation.

Deal of the Day

The clothes on sale at Anthropologie right now are pretty diverse, but they’ve got one thing in common: They’re all under $100. Of course you can find very Anthropologie boho dresses in here, but there’s also plenty of work stuff like neutral-colored wide-leg trousers and jumpsuits, basics like tees and button-downs, and a few styles of jeans. Shoutout in particular to this printed velvet wrap blazer that’s half-off at $59.95 and this olive patchwork kimono that, at $39.95, is almost $100 off retail.

Who Gives a Puck About Sports Merch?
Woman shopping for Golden Knights merch

It was a typical morning on the outskirts of Las Vegas, the temperature approaching 90 degrees in the shade, and adults and children alike were buying ice hockey merch. They scoured the shelves of the Arsenal, a new store at City National Arena, for jerseys, shirts, hats, and hockey pucks in steel gray, gold, red, and black.

The assembled group was celebrating the opening of the practice facility for the Vegas Golden Knights, the first National Hockey League expansion team since 2000. The $24 million, two-rink complex that doubles as a community skating location sits in South Summerlin, 12 miles due west of the Las Vegas Strip. On the ride from downtown, along the highway, there's a billboard from Findlay Chevrolet with an encouraging Go Knights Go. The dusty mountains of Red Rock Canyon National Park rise just past the arena.

The Knights — who will play their first regular season game against the Dallas Stars on October 6th, and host the Phoenix Coyotes in their home opener at T-Mobile Arena four days later, where they’ll pay tribute to the victims of and first responders to Sunday night’s shooting — had been practicing at the complex for two weeks, but team officials waited to christen the space until a late morning in late August.

Men in suits with little Golden Knights logo pins on their lapels meandered about, shaking hands with assorted local dignitaries and eyeing stacks of Krispy Kreme donut boxes set out on folding tables. "We just had one big thing missing," Nevada lieutenant governor Mark Hutchison said during the opening ceremony at center ice. “That was major league, big-time professional sports.”

Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak followed up, saying the arena was “going to be a lynchpin for the rest of downtown Summerlin” and promising 4,000 urban dwelling units in the surrounding area. Bill Foley, the billionaire owner of the Knights and by far the biggest reason why a city known for sports betting (but not team sports) and triple-digit temperatures has professional hockey, stressed the new team's connection to the area. “The Vegas Golden Knights are homegrown,” the 72-year-old businessman said. “We are the Vegas team, and we are proud of it.”

Of Course Ellie Kemper Is a Maxxinista
Ellie Kemper

When you’re a famous Emmy-nominated actress, free clothes kind of come with the territory. But while Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Ellie Kemper could just as well sit back and luxuriate in the mountains of swag that are likely sent her way, the St. Louis native still loves nothing more than the thrill of a bargain hunt. We asked Kemper what her favorite store is, and this is what she told us: 

“I love T.J. Maxx — I love it. T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. I’m always shopping their sites, but I also love going to the store in St. Louis; I don’t like the T.J. Maxx here in New York, I’ll be honest. The more foot traffic, the more picked-over it is...”
