So I've been working at this new store in the area called Uptown Cheapskate and it's easily the best job I've ever had. Uptown is a resale store [similar to Plato's Closet, but much, much better] that buys gently used clothes from its customers in exchange for cash or store credit. It also gets its inventory from different vendors including my favvvvorite, Urban Outfitters. You can get ALL kinds of designer clothes from Uptown at considerably lower prices and the condition of them will be like brand new. Since it's a resale store, we get in new clothes all day, every day.
Here are some of my purchases from the store:
Nude Steve Madden handbag--$20
Suede Urban Outfitters wedges--$20
Badgley Mischka stilettos--probably originally around $200 & I paid $40
Urban Outfitters vest: $10
Olive blazer-- $14>
Wide-legged Joe's Jeans--$34 ...if you wear Joe's, you know they run about in the $100s...we have plenty for way cheaper
J.Crew corduroys--- $12
Kenar top-- $8
Urban Outfitters layered tank-- $8
Urban Outfitters ruffled tank-- $5
Urban Outfitters lace top-- $8
F21 sheer layered top-- $5
Urban Outfitters sheer button up-- $12
Old Navy silk tank-- on sale for $2
Michael Kors top: $11
Joe's skinny jeans [my fav]: $34
Men's Express sweater: $11
The Limited exaggerated shoulder top: $7
Urban Outfitters Jumpsuit-- came in with the tag still on it, originally $68, got it for $13
Some of the prices I had to guess on, but just know they were cheap!
As students, we all need a little extra cash every now & then, so I definitely would encourage you to clean out your closets of all the stuff you don't wear anymore [in excellent condition, no stains or holes] and bring them by to sell. The other week my sister got $85 for all the clothes she no longer wanted. Skip Goodwill & get some cash for your stuff!
We've gotten thousands of new customers since the store opened back in late July that bring in some great clothes, so come check it out!
1/19 thru 1/22/12 we're having a sale: 10% off EVERYTHING in the store!
If you've yet to shop at Uptown Cheapskate, you're definitely missing out.
