If you look around at vintage thrift stores, especially in the hippest parts of Pasadena or Los Angeles, a piece of clothing purchased in the 70s, 80s, or even 90s for a few bucks can be worth hundreds of dollars today. While garage sales may be the most obvious way to de clutter your closet, you often times give away clothes for a fraction of what you bought them for, to the benefit of complete strangers. There are better solutions to “too many clothes” available.
Even if you decide to hold on to your favorite pieces of clothing throughout the years, storing them at home can be counterproductive. The presence of weather, bugs or insects (especially moths, which are notorious for eating holes in fabric), dust, and other factors can destroy your clothing and make your efforts in vain. Boxing up your clothes for your STORBOX unit is in most cases the safest way to store them. For more fragile items that need to be hung up, a portable clothes rack (preferably with a cover) is recommended. These pieces can be invaluable in vintage clothing stores or resale shops in the area, and can land you a decent chunk of change if you store them correctly at STORBOX:
- High heels, flats, cowboy boots, and/or loafers
- Dresses or blouses
- Vintage tees
- Sweaters or Pull-overs
Even if you don’t plan on selling your clothes, just throwing them out isn’t always the best idea, as they can be used as hand-me-downs for future children and/or relatives. In order to make it as nice of a gesture as possible, it’s important you keep your clothes in good condition- and STORBOX is the place to go.
Whether you want to make an extra buck on your clothes one day or save them for a special relative in your life, keeping them in a STORBOX unit won’t just preserve the quality of the clothes, it will also help you clear space at home. Especially since they have been shown to be such a valuable investment, keeping them in a separate, controlled space will help maintain the value of your clothes.
