Have a Green Christmas at Swap.com

Addison, IL – November 20th, 2013 – Soon most of us will be in the throes of the holiday shopping season. Before you head out the door to the outlet stores, the big box stores, or any other brick and mortar store, consider a more economical and environmentally friendly way of giving gently used and pre-owned items.

Swap.com has taken the pre-owned shopping experience digital, with a web site where people can buy, sell or swap gently used kids’ items. It doesn’t get any easier to sell your items; you pack your gently used items, ship them to us and we’ll professionally photograph them and post them on our site. You name your price and collect the money via PayPal, minus a service fee, once your items sell.

Everyone who has kids has items at home that were purchased and sit in a closet with the tags still on. Selling those items can clean out your closets, give you some money for the holidays and also, give those items a second chance.

The same can be said about very gently used items: that dress shirt that went to church or grandma’s once; the toy that seemed like a great idea but didn’t capture their imagination; the books that were read a couple of times in bed. The list is long and the benefits of giving those items a second life are obvious.

This holiday season, consider giving items that are already manufactured and enjoying a second life. Swap.com buyers are raving about the speed of delivery, the quality of the items, and the value. Buying from swap.com is a sure-fire hit for gifts under the tree this season. There are many giftable items on the site from holiday clothing, festive pajamas, the hottest toys, and movies to enjoy while the kids are on holiday break. Most items on the site are 50-85% off of retail prices, so it’s a budget-friendly solution as well.

These outlets have already seen the benefits of swap.com:
