Tradesy Featured on CBS Pittsburgh!

Pittsburgh showed Tradesy some love this week by featuring us on their CBS News! <!–more–> In the segment, Tradesy member Jessica Szymik talks about her experiences on the site, as both a buyer and a seller. Jessica was able to find her bridal shower dress on Tradesy and plans to make some extra cash off of her higher-end, but unworn clothing items. She also hopes to sell her wedding clothes after the big day, as she doesn’t foresee needing them again. Check out the video above to see Jessica’s interview with CBS Pittsburgh!

This Trend Is Spot On

Polka dots are one of our favorite trends at Tradesy HQ. Why? Because they are spot-tacular! Ok, cheesy puns aside, this print really is a great way to spice up your wardrobe and add a little pop to your everyday look. <!–more–>


Pair this trend with brightly colored bottoms, simple gold jewelry, or classic boyfriend jeans. Want more options? Pair a polka dot dress with a floppy sunhat, or combine a basic outfit with a brightly colored polka dot bag. No matter what you choose, there’s something for everyone with this trend!

Put a Spring in your Step


We couldn’t be happier that spring is finally here! To celebrate the start of the new season, we wanted to share some of our favorite spring items that are currently on Tradesy. <!–more–> When it comes to tops, we’re loving oversized tunics, soft pink shades, and funky prints. For dresses, we’re into this Corey Lynn white lace dress and this kimono wrap maxi dress.

Spring Cleaning for Everyone


Last night, the Tradesy team got together to host a Spring Cleaning event for our eco chic guests. Our aim was to help everyone photograph and list their items on the site, but we ended up also indulging in local, organic food and wine. To keep our eco-friendly karma going, we used all recyclable materials, including green glassware and utensils. This made clean-up easy at the end of the night – we were able to fit the entire party into one GLAD trash bag*! We also held on to guests’ unwanted items that didn’t get listed so that we could donate them to a Santa Monica-based charity. I think it’s safe to say we were feeling pretty good about our carbon footprint by the end of the night.



Did you miss out on all our fun last night? Don’t fret! We’re offering a Reader Giveaway for those of you that need help cleaning out your own closet, send your name, address, a photo of your closet, and an explanation of why you need help with your spring cleaning efforts to giveaway@tradesy.com for a chance to win an exclusive Spring Cleaning Kit. <!–more–>

If you’re feeling inspired by our party and want to make your own One Bag event, GLAD’s got you covered. “Like” and visit GLAD’s Facebook page to vote on items for their One Bag party to enter to win several prizes, including $10,000 toward your own event!

*I am a GLAD One Bag Ambassador and some supplies for this party, including GLAD products were provided to me by GLAD. My One Bag party experience is my own.

Floral Finds

If only I could be walking the cobblestoned streets of Europe like this cool chick… I guess I’ll have to settle for copying her outfit instead so that I can live vicariously through her. <!–more–> I did some browsing on Tradesy and found some great snags that reminded me of her floral chic pieces. Grab ‘em fast before my outfit envy gets the best of me and I buy them for myself!

Dressed for Adventure

I picked up this Yellow108 hat a few weeks back and haven’t been able to get images of Indiana Jones out of my head since. I decided to channel my inner Indy spirit yesterday and pair the hat with my skin-tight camel pants, short cowboy boots, and 90’s-vintage Louis Vuitton Monceau (which was actually a steal I found on Tradesy for 80% off!!). <!–more–> I didn’t quite get around to discovering any ancient artifacts, but at least I got to look the part on the beach for a few hours.
