CROSSROADS - May 1, 2010

Crossroads Trading Company Castro District San Francisco, CAWith an abundance of fanciful fashions Crossroads Trading Co. Is an absolute must when looking for a great INEXPENSIVE outfit. Crossroads is located at the epicenter of diverging traffic on Market and Church. This Castro location (they have 4 SF locations,) is easy to get to from wherever you are in the city. You can catch the MUNI, hop on an assortment of bus lines, or if you are feeling nostalgic ride the F line with ease.

What sets Crossroads apart from every other consignment store in San Francisco? It's simple, at Crossroads you are able to bring in clothes that you no longer want and sell them for cash or use as store credit. You have to be selective however as the buyer wont simply take your tattered Nike tee and hand you cash. The key to ensuring that you make some cash is making sure that your clothes are clean, without wear, and are in season. Be sure to check with the Crossroads you will be bringing your clothes into by calling ahead and inquiring about what the buyers are looking for.

While all the Crossroads locations are similar the Castro location is superior in selection. The reason for such great selection? It's gay boys of course. The boys flock here to retire their old rags in exchange for new ones. This aspect of the Crossroads business model is unique and works to the consumers (your) advantage.

Be sure to make frequent appearances as the influx of clothes, shoes, scarves, jackets, purses, and even accessories changes daily. It's great to stop in after a long day to relieve some stress by purchasing a new outfit. After all you simply can't feel guilty about buying a pair of Diesel jeans for thirty bucks. Plus, with the San Francisco fashion scene changing quicker than the seasons its always a safe cost effective bet purchasing at Crossroads.
