About Us

“My mission is to make second-hand shopping and selling a slick, easy and reliable experience for all.”

Why does Worn In Wardrobe exist?

What we do

We buy as well as sell second-hand children's clothing on this website.

Selling - We have a unique quotation tool that allows you to get an instant estimated price, so you can make a quick decision about whether you want to use our service. To find out more about how it works, see our selling page.

Processing - We hand check the quality and condition of all items before standardising their presentation, pricing and description.

Shopping – We sell the items that have passed our quality checks from our user-friendly online shop.

The aim is to provide convenience for both sellers and shoppers, whilst ultimately keeping more clothes in use for longer. The easier it is to shop second-hand, the more people will engage with this circular activity!

Is there a need?

Who we do it for

Our website is for busy parents who are looking for convenience and good value. It's for people who need sustainable shopping habits to be made easier and less time-consuming. 

By taking over the lion's share of the work involved in reselling, our service is an attractive option to those having a clear-out and looking to make some money back from their clothes.

Who am I?

My name is Madeleine and the idea for Worn In Wardrobe came from an excessive period of nesting when I was 2 weeks overdue with my second child. I distracted myself by collecting second-hand baby clothes and dreaming up this business.

Fun facts about me include that I love karaoke, I did a 3 year stint as a pub quizmaster, and I’m a zumba fanatic - 100% believe in the power of dance to lift your mood!

What’s important to me?

Ease of use, sustainability, community, and reliability. By applying these core values I hope to provide you with convenience, an enjoyable online experience and peace of mind.

Looking to the future

I’d like to see the stigma removed around the gifting of second-hand items. I’d like to see better working conditions for garment workers worldwide.

Worn In Wardrobe was also borne out of my own difficulties trying to balance work and motherhood. My aim is to create flexible living wage jobs for those with caring responsibilities and other unpaid commitments. Jobs that actually fit into people’s lives and bring them joy.
