My Kid’s Threads was developed to be the destination for moms to oufit their children in brand name clothing at reasonable prices and provide a way to recoup some money from excellent quality outgrown clothing. Using her experience gained by running large scale eCommerce businesses for Fortune 500 companies, Lisa Batra created Mykidsthreads.com where busy moms trying to maintain a budget can buy and sell quality children’s clothing easily and conveniently.
An online children’s consignment service featuring clothing newborn to size 14 from super premium brands like Burberry, Catimini, Jottum, Ralph Lauren and more. My Kid’s Threads is the service moms everywhere have been waiting for. An easy and affordable way to keep kids dressed in new and like-new designer clothing at up to 80 percent off retail prices. The hassle-free consignment process makes it easy to clean out children’s closets and earn the highest payout in the industry or elect to have proceeds donated to selected charities.
The recently launched website, www.mykidsthreads.com, was founded and is run by Lisa Batra, a mother of two, and provides a solution to a problem faced by moms everywhere. Moms seeking to keep their ever growing kids outfitted in fashion forward clothing without paying premium prices or those that just do not have the time or access to outlets for selling their children’s outgrown items now can do so from the convenience of their home.
My Kid’s Threads offers a variety of childrenswear from dresses to outerwear and carries clothing for all seasons at 50-80% off retail prices. Each item is hand selected and put through a rigorous inspection and preparation process to ensure that it is flawless before being listed for sale. Every purchase comes with the My Kid’s Threads Quality Promise and a Full Refund Guarantee. Shoppers can also participate in the free My Kid’s Bucks rewards program. My Kid’s Bucks accumulate when making purchases on the site, consigning clothes, creating an account, signing up for the newsletter, referring friends, and can be used to pay for all My Kid’s Threads purchases.
“As a mom of two, I always enjoyed dressing my kids in high-quality clothes, but have never gotten comfortable with the amount of money I was spending buying clothes. Online auctions were risky because more often than not, I got stuck with items that were not as described, while bargain hunting at department stores or picking through traditional consignment stores required undivided time and attention … a luxury most moms don’t have. Then there was the problem of not knowing what to do with all those great barely-used clothes just a few months later when my children had outgrown them,” says Lisa Batra, Founder and CEO of My Kid’s Threads. “My Kid’s Threads was born to make this process affordable and hassle-free.”
My Kid’s Threads also makes selling kids clothing easy and rewarding. Unlike competitors who payout between 5 and 10 percent of the selected items, My Kid’s Threads works on a true consignment model and pays consignors up to 50 percent of the actual item resale price. Consignors request a free My Kid’s Threads mailer bag, fill it up with outgrown clothing and send it back with prepaid shipping. Consignors can choose to be paid via PaypPal, check, or have their proceeds applied directly to a chosen 501(c)3 charity partner such as Cradles to Crayons and Mattie N. Dixon Community Cupboard. My Kid’s Threads handles everything else.
