I HATE Plato's Closet!!!



We all buy clothes and some of us rationalize new purchases by getting rid of things we've never worn or only worn once.

Enter Plato's Closet. Plato's Closet is a consignment shop where you can buy and sell new and trendy items. I have sold to Platos Closet several times, only to leave disappointed on multiple occasions. I've sold BRAND NEW, never been worn, tag still attached, name brand items and received a whopping $6.00!  Sometimes I look back in the bin and say "are you crazy?"  That shirt cost this or those shoes cost that. Needless to say, I take the money because hey something is better than nothing but something has to give! The response they give seems memorized and full of bologna!! "We couldn't take the other items because they looked worn, aren't currently in style and in season." I want to scream out "LIES" at the top of my lungs.  

I don't want to come back home with the items, I have already agreed to part with so my next stop is the goodwill to donate the remaining items. It just frustrates me, that Platos closet is able to mark up the items they just ripped me off for.  Anyone feel the same way I do??

  1. I've had the same problem at Buffalo Exchange in Center City. I've stopped trying and just donate the clothes to Purple Heart. They'll come and pick them up from your house and everything.

  2. It's just like returning textbooks at UD. It's all a scam as old as time and higher education itself.

  3. Yes!!!! I have taken things there on more than one occasion and told them no thank you because I was offended at their price. I'd rather give my things away to someone who can appreciate or really needs them.

    Once Upon A Child is the same way!
