RESALE & CIRCULARITY
We're all about clothing circularity. That's why we've partnered with thredUP to help extend the life of your clothing. When you order a free NATION LTD x thredUP Closet Cleanout Kit you're giving the clothes you no longer wear (or love) a second life. PLUS for eligible items you'll be getting a NATION LTD shopping credit to add some new favorites to your wardrobe. Everything else will be responsibly recycled.
So, what are you waiting for?
HOW IT WORKS
Request a NATION LTD x thredUP Clean Out Kit to sell your clothing. They’ll send you a FREE USPS or FedEX shipping label that can be used on any box. (We love re-using a box.)
Drop in your gently used women’s and kids’ clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories (from any brand) and send to thredUP via your choice of USPS or FedEx.
Once your bag is processed, you’ll earn NATION LTD credit (thredUP’s calculated payout* plus an additional 15%) for eligible items that sell in the listing window.
Items not accepted for resale through thredUP will be responsibly recycled. (Or opt to have your items returned.) So, win. Win.
IT'S NEW TO YOU.
thredUP is transforming resale with technology and a mission to inspire a new generation of consumers to think secondhand first. By making it easy to buy and sell secondhand, thredUP has become one of the world’s largest resale platforms for women’s and kids’ apparel, shoes, and accessories.
You can drop your bag or box off at any USPS or FedEx location.
What items can I send in?
You can send in gently used women’s and kids’ clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories from any brand.
All items should:
Have limited signs of wear, including pilling, fading, and shrinkage.

What happens to items not listed on thredUP?
Together with their partners, thredUP is committed to returning as many items as possible back into the circular economy and keeping them out of landfill. Items that are still in good shape, but don’t meet thredUP’s quality standards are evaluated for inclusion in thredUP’s Rescues program. Items that don’t qualify for listing or Rescue Boxes are reused or responsibly recycled by our vetted network of textile recycling and reuse partners.
Yes. We will keep you updated every step of the way via email. You will receive notifications when we receive your bag, when your items are processed, and when you receive NATION LTD credit.
Once you’ve mailed your kit, it can take up to 3 weeks to be delivered to thredUP. Once your kit is received, it will take an estimated 6 weeks to process your kit.
There's no charge for physical Clean Out Kits or digital labels.
The pricing of your listed items is based on various factors, including brand, style, condition, size, and overall salability. Some value brands are ineligible for a payout, but you can still send them in. See a list of ineligible brands here.
Once your kit’s been processed, your eligible items will be listed on consignment for 30 listing days. Note: The time that an item is unavailable for purchase (e.g. in someone’s cart) does not count toward its 30-day listing timeframe. If an item isn't returned within that 30-day listing window, you’ll earn NATION credit within 21 days for the items that sell. NATION will send an email explaining how to access your shopping credit.
You will receive a notification from thredUP when your items are processed. Within 21 days, you will receive an email from NATION LTD with your gift card. The shopping credit can be used to purchase any items on our site. There is no time period in which you have to spend your credit.
REWEAR. RECIRCULATE. REPEAT.
*NATION credit is based on the selling price of items sold per kit within a 30-day listing window. Read more about what thredUp accepts HERE. As a thank you, NATION LTD will add an additional 15% to all payouts to be used as credit to shop at nationltd.com. Your NATION LTD credit will be sent in the form of an e-gift card to the email address associated with your thredUP kit. Please allow up to 3 weeks after your kit is processed for credit to be sent.
