have decided "never again" and so I have a small stack of maternity clothes to clear out. I don't think they are worth a huge amount, but it seems a charity may as well benefit. Not sure whether just to take them to a charity shop, perhaps try and sell them (nct sale/ebay/carboot?) for charity, or try and donate them to a more specific type of sale, any ideas?
I wouldn't bother with a charity shop - very few of them have a dedicated maternity section and just mix them in with the rest, I imagine this makes them very hard to sell and they probably end up being sold by weight for rags / recycling etc.
You can eBay for charity and I think that would probably benefit your chosen cause more.
Or ask around locally - maybe a Women's Aid or similar organisation could use them?
I'd go for freecycle - it's really easy for you to manage (no trips to post office, for example). Only risk is the person who collects may sell them on - I wouldn't mind this, but you can't guarantee the proceeds will go to charity.
