Selling your clothes with Twinkling Tiger

Cute boy with Long Hair

What clothes do you take?

We accept new and preloved baby and children’s clothing from 0-12 years (including fancy dress and baby sleeping bags) and shoes up to adult size 4. 
Clothes can be any brand but must be in good, clean, undamaged condition, not overly bobbled or stretched/ mishshapen, have brand,
size and care labels in place, and must not be counterfeit or copy. 
At this time we do not accept any type of uniform, accessories (eg socks, tights and hats), underwear, home made items
or any clothes that do not meet our quality checks.
Please also note that we only accept clothes seasonally (apart from Christmas and Halloween clothes that we take any time of year) and due to having limited storage space if you send us out of season clothes these may be directly donated or passed on and you will not receive payment for them. Please check before you drop which season we are currently accepting.

How does it work?

It really couldn't be easier - no need to take any pictures or list your items just get in touch to find out what season is being accepted (winter clothes normally September to January and summer clothes March to July), what age there is currently space for and to arrange a time to drop off or meet. Simples!

In terms of what you can expect to get for your clothes the detail is below .....

You are also very welcome to donate clothes to help the Twinkling Tiger mission of finding new homes for good quality preloved clothes where they can go on new adventures, save mums and dads some pennies and help save the planet! 

Once we have accepted your items for sale, we will use one or more of our channels for at least 6 months to attempt to sell your item.  The 6 month period may not be directly after receiving your clothes due to seasonal demand and the volume of clothes being processed.

How do I get my clothes to you?

There are a number of ways to get your clothes to us:

- You can drop them to us in Rougham (near Bury St Edmunds)

- If you are in the local area (Thurston, Rougham, Woolpit etc) we may be able to collect from you

- You can mail them to us - please get in touch to discuss postage options and what we will contribute and details of where to send them

However you choose to get the to us we recommend using a box if possible, folding the clothes neatly and packing them tightly together to make sure they reach us in the best condition, particuarly if you have ironed them.

If you would like to go ahead then please complete the form below and we will get back to you asap:

What happens if my clothes do not pass your quality checks?

Our quality checks are very stringent and sometimes it is easy to miss small marks, loose stitching, runs or holes when you check them at home. If you do not wish items to be returned to you then any items that are not accepted for sale will, wherever possible, be treated in one of the following ways:

  1. Included in a 'Too Good to Throw' bundle

  2. Upcycled into a new handcrafted item

  3. Donated to a local charity
