I sell all of my clothes at Buffalo Exchange or Crossroads Trading Co. I usually start at Crossroads and then go to Buffalo Exchange, I drop any unsold items off at Goodwill.
Failure alert: I made the mistake of not packing my shirts correctly and so some of them are extremely wrinkled! On a day to day basis, my stuff is hanging in my closet, wonderfully crease free. When I travel I take a little more care in packing my clothes and then hang them at my destination…Lesson learned for future, on location, wardrobe shoots!
