Sell your pre-loved occasion wear with The Lady’s Maid.
Selling unwanted or unworn items in your wardrobe is a sustainable way of recycling your clothing whilst making room for clothes you actually wear. Photographing, listing, packaging and posting is time consuming so let The Lady’s Maid take care of the hassle for you!
How it works:
Submit a brief description and photo of your items to The Lady’s Maid via email: email@example.com. Please note I will prioritise dresses, formal day wear, and occasion wear (so no casual pieces) and favour classic, timeless pieces from recognised brands. All items must be in excellent condition. Knitwear will be accepted only if it is in excellent condition and from a high end brand. Any accepted items will be valued and selling prices agreed. Once the items have been posted to me I will take care of photographing them on a mannequin, writing descriptions and listing them for sale via my pre-loved instagram page @theladysmaid_preloved and via this website. Once a piece sells I will dispatch it to its new home and you will receive payment for the piece minus my selling commission (your earnings: 65%, my commission: 35%). Once an item has been sent to me you agree to leave it with me for a minimum period of 6 months. After that if it hasn’t sold you can request for its return free of charge.
Laurence Coste rose quartz earrings: £125 ; Stuart Weitzman Leigh suede heels in desert rose (Size: UK 6) £150.
Why choose The Lady’s Maid?
My commission fee is lower than most other clothing re-sale platforms and consignment stores who typically deduct 50% in commission fees. I also have an international social media following who favour classic, timeless style, and trust my style choices so your pieces will be seen by the right buyers rather than being lost in the big eBay sea.

At least once a year I like to have a clear out to reorganise my wardrobe and get rid of things that I no longer wear. This January I had the biggest wardrobe detox ever and listed almost 200 items for re-sale. Initially I was motivated by raising extra funds to care for my poorly pug, Dorothy, who was diagnosed with a serious condition in October last year (protein losing enteropathy). Her vet bills escalated to £7,000 in 3 months. But the more I listed, the more I realised I wanted to let go of a lot of things in order to have a more streamlined wardrobe. So far I have raised £3,000 which will help fund Dorothy’s ongoing veterinary care. There are still lots of items left for sale, pictured and detailed below. Close-up photos of each piece are on my Instagram page @theladysmaid_preloved. Email: email@example.com for more info or to purchase.
