Have you heard of Trend Trunk? They made their national television debut by battling the Dragons on Dragons’ Den!
Trend Trunk is a social marketplace where you can buy, sell, and donate amazing new and pre-loved fashion in a fun and simple way. Our aim is to inspire and collaborate with the fashion-minded and budget-conscious community in a trustworthy environment. We believe that one person’s lonely wardrobe is another’s true love! If you’ve got items you’re not in love with anymore, you can ‘cash in your closet’ and use those funds to shop a users’ closet whose style you love, donate those funds to your favourite charity, or get the funds deposited directly into your bank account.
Trend Trunk aims to help you:
1. Make money by cashing in your closet of all those stylish and fashionable items you have tucked away
2. Save money by shopping fellow members’ closets full of brand new to pre-loved styles they love
3. And look good doing it!
WHY THEY ARE UNIQUE
1. They manage the payment and shipping, so you don’t have to. A seller receives a prepaid / preaddressed shipping label in their email when a sale is made. Simply print, pack, and ship.
2. Unlike Kijiji/Craigslist etc, there’s no meeting up with strangers to try to sell your items, not to mention avoiding all the headaches that come with that (e.g. no shows, haggling, and the ‘creep’ factor). 3. You get 80% of the price they set, meaning more money in your pocket compared to traditional consignment stores. 4. If you want to feel good and look good at the same time, they’ve combined fashion and fundraising through their Closets & Causes program which allows you to donate up to 100% of your net sale proceeds to any charity in Canada. Plus, you’ll receive a tax receipt for the donated value—so it’s a win-win.
HOW IT WORKS
1. In less than 60 seconds, you can post an item via their website or mobile app
2. You post the pics, set the price, enter the description (NOTE: a full service solution is coming soon, where they will do all the work for you!)
3. Once your item sells, you are instantly emailed a pre-addressed/pre-paid shipping label which you just print/pack/ship- there’s no fuss no muss.
4. You receive 80% of the selling price that you set. You can then go on a guilt-free shopping spree on Trend Trunk, transfer the funds to your bank account or donate it
5. Your item goes to someone who can continue to enjoy it.
