Sell your old clothes that are in pristine condition and earn some cash that can be utilised for various other reasons 💰
You can choose to create your very own e-shop (small scale) on your own through Carousell and social media or you can sell them to REFASH and other second hand consignment thrift shops where they will review the quality of your clothes and give you a quotation value. Although you may not earn or gain profits, it gives you a small amount of cash from your unwanted “trash” 🗑
