 Top 10 Brands that aren’t Jeans


10. Lululemon

I rarely come across anything Lululemon, but always get excited when I do. Their basic fitness pants are easy to sell for $30 and they are high quality.

9. Under Armour
This is a brand I find all the time. I particularly like finding jackets and hoodies, but also specialty items like padded shirts for sports. While I buy UA stuff all the time, I currently have only one UA item in my store because they sell so quickly.

8. The North Face
Here’s another brand I love to find, but only come across a couple times a month. Their jackets and hoodies do really well, while their shirts don’t hold the same value.

7. Banana Republic
This is a brand that I prefer to find for men rather than women. Their jackets and fleeces do really well for men and they have nice pants for women too.

6. Les Mills
This is a brand I was unfamiliar with up until a few months ago. I came across 15, or so, of their fitness tops and all but a couple have sold for $35-55. They are high quality and have a loyal customer base. If you come across these, don’t leave them behind!
5. PrAna
This is a relatively new brand to me. I found it first a few months back. I knew it felt like quality so I bought the pants and didn’t bother looking them up first. Sure enough, they were high quality and had a good resale value. I’ve stumbled upon them a few times since and will be looking for them in the future.

4. Nike
This is probably my #1 brand since I sell more Nike than any other brand. It’s rare that a day goes by where I don’t sell at least one Nike item. You have to be careful with Nike as some of their items don’t hold their value as much as others. Still, if it’s a jacket/hoodie/pants, you’re normally going to do well. You might not make the most profit from Nike, but they are virtually guaranteed to sell.

3. adidas
adidas is right up there with Nike when it comes to easy-to-sell items. Their hoodies/jackets/pants sell quickly and are high quality. I find a lot of specialty sports teams clothing from adidas that do really well. Their first “a” is lower cased, btw.

2. Juicy Couture
Their jackets and pants sell fine, but it’s the blingy ones that do particularly well. Whenever I find one of their hoodie jackets with the bling or sweat pants with stones, I know it will sell quickly. They are high quality, but this brand runs small, so be sure to include measurements (always include measurements, no matter what brand you are selling).

1. Victoria’s Secret
This is a brand that sells great in so many different areas. You can find value in everything from bras to sweats and hoodies to jackets. One VS item that doesn’t hold its value is VS jeans. They will sell, but not for a high value.

I didn’t include jeans in this list since most, if not all, could have been brands like Miss Me or Rock Revival. So, what brands do you get excited to find?

Over the course of the year, I’ve found some pretty cool items. Below are ten of my favorite things I’ve bought and sold in my store. Some of them have sold while others are still for sale. Click on the picture to read more about them.
