It's free to join. And we've tried to make it as easy as possible to participate.
Welcome to the sharing economy! Double Dutchery is a peer-to-peer clothing swap platform for gently used kids clothing. Kids often grow out of clothes before they wear them out; chances are, there's a parent that needs exactly what your kids just grew out of, and vice versa. 'Peer to peer' means you're trading directly with other members, like a local community clothing swap but on a much, much larger scale. More members means more selection.
Sharing keeps costs amazingly low for everyone.
Because you're swapping directly with other community members, it's unbelievably inexpensive to get a box of new-to-you clothing. Buyers pay only the USPS Flat Rate shipping, plus a handling fee (that keeps the site running). That's it. For example, $17 will get you a box of 4-12 items, often with brand names. That's significantly cheaper than even second-hand and boutique consignment stores -- and you don't have to waste time and gas driving around sorting through items of questionable value. And because each member is responsible for the quality of their box listings, there's built-in accountability.
List a box, take a box.
When a member lists a box of clothing, it is available for other members to take. Costs are pre-paid by the buyer (see 'shipping and handling'), so it's super easy to participate. When you list a box, you earn a point that can be used to get another's member's box of clothing. The more you list, the more points you earn.
Piece of cake.
- Start by clearing out your drawers and closets. Gather up outgrown, gently used clothing.
- List a box of clothing by gender and size. The more the better.
- When someone wants your box, they'll pay for shipping and handling and you'll be notified by email. A few days later an addressed, prepaid shipping label will arrive in your regular mail.
- Just peel and stick this label on your USPS Flat Rate box (available free at your Post Office and online by selecting small, medium or large).
Satisfaction always guaranteed.
If you're not satisfied with the items you receive, we'll refund your member points and the handling fee. It's that simple.
Easy, right? That's it! We hope you'll join us.
