Saving You Money: Shop My Closet

Stacy Case

   Three Williamson County women cleaned out their closets and took to Facebook to see if anyone wanted their stuff.
   Pretty soon, they found lots of folks eager to shop their closets.
   The women refer to it as trading fun fashion and they love that their clothes are getting worn more than once or twice and they're getting a second life.
   When the three cleaned out their closets, they had everything from name brand to designer wear.  Customers say it looks like an upscale boutique without  a boutique budget.
  Prices are a 1/3 to a 1/4 of the original price and the majority of these clothes still have the tags.
   Co Founder Tristen Eaves explains why the "Shop My Closet" concept is so popular.  "We have pregnancy and weight gain and loss or season changes and it looked cute, or it was on sale and we never wear it."
   Many women are in the same predicament.  When these ladies first decided to clean out their closets they thought they'd have a sale in someone's living room.   One mention on Facebook and their business blossomed.
     Co founder Trish Hill thinks it's because there are lots of childrens' consignment sales and women's consignment shops, but no real women's consignment sales that last just a day or two.
    It's a new twist on clothes swapping fueled by the power of social media  that's outfitting women for less.
  Here's the Facebook page. 
The sale concludes with markdown day Friday April 4 at the Brookfield Neighborhood Pool Cabana from  9 am to Noon.  The address is 2301 Tinney Place in Brentwood.
