i know you can sell pretty much anything... and i'd pretty much know where to go to do it.. but i was given this REALLY fancy, heavy (i have to hang it up with 3 coat hangers or they bend)and overall expensive feeling trench coat. the family was extreamly wealthy and clearing out the closet, so we took some of the stuff they didnt want.




is there.. a .. clothes dealer? or something?

You should be able to find a consignment store for clothes in your town.

with a wardrobe like that you must live in a warm climate.

Tough to get scammed selling on fleabay. At least, it hasn't happened to ME yet after probably 150+ transactions

I don't think technically you can get scammed on something you didn't buy in the first place except on shipping Posted Image

If the coat still has the labels in it, size etc.. I'd go for it on eBay.

If it will fit you, you might consider keeping it

I am not sure there would be a large market for a used trench coat on E-bay. Might be better off taking it to a pawn shop if it is a very nice coat/brand.
