And there’s really no better way to start fresh than by getting down and dirty and clearing away all the clutter in our lives — starting with our closets.

While there are tons of ways you can sell your unwanted goodies online, doing it in the flesh at a brick-and-mortar consignment shop is just as fun — and hassle-free. And did we mention it's instant? No photographing, no shipping, no waiting around to get started.

To make it even easier for you, we’ve scouted L.A. and compiled a handy dandy cheat sheet to the city’s raddest resale shops — complete with all the info you need to consign like a boss and turn your closet cast-offs into some serious dough. Ready, set, sell!

Great Labels
Great Labels has been selling high-end secondhand wares to the Westside area for over a decade.

After years of reselling designer garb on eBay, owner Abby McLucas decided to bring an IRL version of her online shop to Eagle Rock last year. The airy store feels very much like a designer boutique as it stocks a stellar selection of seasonal, on-trend clothing, and accessories from recent seasons by cult-favorite labels like Céline, Chloé, Haute Hippie, and Proenza Schouler. They pays 40% in cash, 50% in trade, or 65% for items sold for more than $1,000. Give them a ring to book an appointment.

Buffalo Exchange
Buffalo Exchange is consignment made easy for several reasons. They consign all day, every day. They love all kinds of different clothing and accessories from vintage to super-trendy.

And, they pay up front and give you the option of taking 30% of the sale price in cash or 50% in store credit.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better selection of vintage and modern pre-loved pieces from top-tier labels than the one at Decades — making it a top spot for both buying a selling designer goods. This Melrose mainstay has been in the game since 1997 and is by far one of L.A.’s most raved about resale shops. Co-owners Cameron Silver and Christos Garkinos even starred in their own Bravo reality series, Dukes of Melrose. Consigning is done by appointment only and proceeds are split in half. One thing to remember: Their selection is highly edited so bring in only your best stuff.

Combing through the racks upon racks at this L.A. staple is pretty much the best kind of treasure hunt. From vintage gems to modern designer pieces, you never know what you’ll find. They accept items that are in season and don’t require appointments, just drop by between noon and 6 p.m. any day. The coolest thing about Wasteland is that they pay sellers 35% of resale price on the spot, so you’ll walk in with a bag full of goodies and walk out with some extra money in your pocket.
