The Sustainable School Shop is a great resource for buying and selling secondhand school uniforms.
Secondhand uniforms need to be:
- In good or better condition – simply means there is at least 12 months wear left in the garment, and be of a saleable quality.
- Freshly laundered/dry cleaned (dry cleaning receipt attached), pressed, and presented in ‘ready to wear’ condition, with buttons, hems and stitching in good repair.
Tailored items that have been custom fitted may not have sizing i.e. Blazers. We recommend that shirt size, or other sizing reference be used to provide an indication of size and fit.
Provide additional information about the items you wish to sell in the ‘extra comments’ section in each for sale advertisement. This will assist purchasers in understanding the garment and its quality.
School uniforms are always in demand and sought year round, peak trading times are:
- Change of Season
- Year End
- Year Start
- There can be a six month delay in item trading if other families wait for the next relevant season to come around
Remember, every item of secondhand uniform you sell is helping another family within your school community and will be appreciated.
If your school’s uniform list is not available on our website, please send it to us and will upload the uniform data. This will standardise all wanted and for sale ads and make the ad listing process very easy. Then our Ad matching service will be able to match buyer with sellers.
