Kids clothes is a booming big business, so big that even the Kardashian sisters have their own children’s line now available at Nordstorm. Today kids want to be stylish and this trend has passed on to parents wanting to dress their baby in stylish gear from head to toe. The demand for kids clothing is growing rapidly and more trends are causing parents to pack their children’s closets. Kids want all the latest fashion and accessories being pushed in the marketplace.
For parents the major problem is how to dress kids in stylish gear and still be able to afford this luxury as kids grow. Families that have kids who’ve outgrown their clothes can order a free Moxie Jean mailer bag to fill up and send to the company, which then sorts through the items to see what they can accept to sell on their site. Moxie Jean pays customers outright for anything they accept, between 50 cents and a few dollars. From there they steam it, hang it up and photograph it before putting the items for sale on their site. Schneider said about 60 percent of items sent in are accepted to be sold on the site.
