Add To Your Wardrobe For Free

How would you like to add to your wardrobe without spending any money?

That would be an ideal situation, for many of us, during these difficult financial times. Savvy shoppers in England have found a creative way to enhance their wardrobes and get rid of their unwanted clothing all on the same website. It's a vintage clothing community called Covert Candy. Membership to the community is free and the only thing you ever pay for is to ship your items to the person who has chosen to "purchase" them.

How It Works

First, register to join the Covert Candy community for free. Second, upload pictures and descriptions of the clothing, jewelry, purses and hats, that you are interested in parting with. Third, determine the value of the clothing. Next, mail the clothing to the customer who has ordered them. Once the articles of clothing have been received by the "buyer" your account is assigned the credits that your clothing was worth. Finally, shop on Covert Candy with the credits that were accumulated.

I think that this could be a wonderful way to acquire, unique, vintage clothes and an awesome way to keep clothing that is still in great condition out of landfills. It is also a great way to save money and still get to wear something fabulous that you didn't have to pay for.

Acquiring great clothing and helping the environment, sounds like a win-win situation to me.
