Has anyone heard of an awesome store by the name of "Plato's Closet." If not, you should.

This store is a store where you can bring your unwanted, gently used, brand named clothes. A worker at the store will sift through your clothes and find the ones that they think will sell. They return the clothes that they do not approve to you and give you cash for the ones that they do approve of. Then, they put these clothes on shelves for people to buy at very cheap prices. These clothes are pretty much brand new and are in fact, supposed to be very expensive, but you can buy them cheap at Plato's Closet.

So, are you a fan of Abercrombie but not a fan of the prices there? No problem! If you go to Plato's Closet, you can find Abercrombie shirts, shorts, skirts, pants, or shoes for an affordable price. You can find other store's clothes there as well. J Crew, American Eagle, Aeropostale, The Limited, Gap, Old Navy, Hollister, Banana Republic, Express, Bebe, Charlotte Russe, and Forever 21 are only a few of those stores.

From my personal experience, Plato's Closet is AWESOME! I have purchased 2 cool shirts from there at very cheap prices. I have also sold a pair of shorts to them. I will admit, they are very picky about what they accept. I brought a basket of clothes there, and they only accepted that one pair of shorts. Why? Well, all of them were brand name, but were not made recently enough. Whoops! Another requirement! Clothes accepted there also have to have been made recently. They can't have been made long ago, because the style 1-5 years ago is different from the style today. People won't want clothes that are old and out of date. I personally don't care if a shirt was made a while back, if I like it, I'll buy it, but a lot of teens today DO care.

So, do you want to sell some of your clothes, or do you want to buy really nice brand name clothes? You can do both at Plato's Closet. For more information about this awesome store you can visit www.platoscloset.com.

Happy Shopping, or selling! Look for the next "Fashion Fanatics" article! Hope you enjoyed!
