    Default Selling baby clothes - where, how?

    So I've always packed my daughters clothes up and stored them away but now that I'm having a boy and this will be my last, I've started sorting through all my daughters stuff with the intention of selling it. It's all in really good condition, she had so many clothes that a lot of it was only worn a few times, especially the smaller sizes. It isn't brand name stuff, there's a bit of bonds and pumpkin patch but the majority is Kmart, target, B&L and big W. I'm thinking of bundling it up by size, but there's heaps in each size so maybe even onesies in one bundle, PJs in another bundle, shirts / pants in another, etc. I don't expect to make heaps of money so am willing to price it reasonably.

    So to those who sell their baby clothes, where is the best place to sell it, eBay, gumtree, BSS sites? Do you bundle it when it's cheaper items like mine? If so, how do you bundle it? Which website takes the least time? Do you photograph every item or just lay them all out together? I'm grateful for any advice you can provide :-)

    The only tip I can provide is to put all of the bonds stuff together and don't be shy about the price. Other clothes might be harder to sell and it will likely need to be priced very cheap. I haven't looked much on eBay but there are always heaps of bundles for sale on my local BSS page. Most people take a photo of each bundle with the clothes laid out so that each item can be seen.

    It might be worth asking is someone wants to do a swap for a bundle or boys clothes

    I use bss pages on Facebook. I bundle them up into size and season. I sell them from anywhere between $15-$60 depending on how much stuff is in each bundle. Never had a problem!

    ETA: I put a photo of each bundle and itemize what is in it (e.g. 3x pj's, 10x onesies etc).

    I've sold clothes on Facebook BSS.

    I usually bundle lots by size and season, e.g 'size 4 boy's winter bundle'. I generally take one photo with everything laid out. I'll also list what's in the bundle e.g '4 x long pants, 5 x hoodies, 7 long sleeve tees'.

    Price reasonably and you'll find they get snapped up pretty quickly.
