Selling with The RealReal

Thank you to The RealReal for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
Jessica Sturdy of Chicago-based fashion blog Bows & Sequins shares her experience using The RealReal to sell clothes, bags, shoes, and accessories on The RealReal.

Even with so many moves over the last five years, I still have so many clothes and accessories I haven’t worn in quite some time. Well, had.

I actually had The RealReal come over last week and help me clean out my closet! Whenever I’m helping my styling clients edit their closets, we always make a pile for The RealReal. But you know the adage, “Do as I say, not as I do?”

I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that I hadn’t taken my own advice until a few weeks ago!

How Does Selling Work on The RealReal?

Scheduling my in-home consignment appointment couldn’t have been easier… You simply click ‘Free At-Home Appointment’ and instantly choose convenient days and times for a Luxury Manager to come to you.

The RealReal handles EVERYTHING! No taking pictures, no measuring, no schlepping. You will have your rep’s phone number to call or text at any time. Truly a white-glove service!

If you’d prefer a UPS pick-up instead, you can choose that option, or even drop off at one of their stores nearby!

Your Luxury Manager will take all of your items and send you a detailed list after your appointment! Once they’re authenticated, photographed, and listed on the site, you’ll be able to keep an eye on things from your online account on the My Sales page. Once an item sells, you can opt for direct deposit, a mailed check, or even a site credit to shop.

What does The RealReal sell?

Think you don’t have anything to sell? Think again! While consigning luxury items results in the most money for you, I was very pleasantly surprised to learn that The RealReal actually takes a lot of commonly owned brands in addition to luxury goods! Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Ray-Ban, The North Face, UGG, Barbour, Birkenstock, Reformation, Sezane, Clare V, Marc Jacobs, etc.

Purging my denim collection was the easiest way to find more things to sell! The RealReal accepts AGOLDE, Mother, Rag & Bone, 3×1, Re/Done, Moussy, AMO, and more.

You can check out TRR’s Designer Directory for brands they’re currently accepting and selling! When it comes to categories, The RealReal accepts Women’s, Men’s, Kids, Fine Jewelry, Watches, Art, Home, and Collectibles.

When you’re cleaning out your jewelry box, keep in mind that The RealReal accepts both branded fine jewelry, as well as 14K+ gold unbranded jewelry.

Does The RealReal sell Men’s?

They do! This is such a great service to put on your dad, brother, and boyfriend’s radars this holiday season! (Wives, you already know you’ll be handling this on your husband’s behalf.) From my experience, guys usually need the most help when it comes to closet cleanouts.
