Jennifer has been purging our closets lately trying to thin things out. We have gotten rid of baby clothes, maternity clothes, t-shirts, shoes, and things we don’t wear anymore. She has been either donating the stuff to the CARE Ministry or selling them at a consignment shop.
Well, I put together a box of button-down shirts and polos from my closet and took them over to sell. Probably 10 shirts in all. I dropped them off at the counter and the attendent said it take about 45 mintues to look them over and determine the resale value. Then I could come back and collect my money. So we left, did some shopping, had some Starbucks, and came back.
When I came in, they put the whole box of clothes right back in front of me. I asked the worker, “Were these no good to sell?” The girl’s response was hilarious.
“Sir, your clothes are too basic. We can’t use them.”
A used clothing shop that specializing in reselling USED clothing told me that my USED clothes were TOO BASIC! How funny is that.
