“The support we have received from the community has been the most rewarding part of this adventure,” shares Jessica. “While we were confident in the success of bringing an Uptown Cheapskate to Midlothian, the immediate response has been positively overwhelming. We appreciate and value each and every customer that has walked through our door and have built some amazing relationships along the way.”

The buy, sell, trade concept Uptown Cheapskate offers is a win-win scenario. Members in the community can declutter their closets and earn cash on the spot, while style-hunters can find designer clothing at up to 90 percent less than retail.

Need help finding that perfect gift for Mother’s Day? Uptown has you covered. Here are our favorite gift ideas for Mother’s Day that Mom is bound to love.

1 – Designer Handbag ($-$$$). It’s amazing how many people bring designer handbags, like Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, to your local Uptown. These designer bags are up to 70% off their retail price, so you will have money left over to purchase the matching wallet!

2 – Jewelry ($-$$). Trying on Mom’s jewelry was a rite of passage when we were younger and that’s why we believe it’s time to give Mom a necklace, bracelet, or ring all of her own. Uptown prices mean you can find matching jewelry for both you and Mom, the perfect Mother’s Day idea! #twins!

3 – Home Cooked Meal ($-$$). Show your mom some love by taking over the kitchen for Mother’s Day. Here are our top picks for meals to treat Mom with on her special day.

4 – Sandals ($-$$$). Complement those cute sandals you got Mom at Uptown with a manicure & pedicure spa date.

5 – Women’s Fragrance ($-$$). Mom will remember how much you love her every time she is putting on some wonderful perfume you found at Uptown!

6 – Tops ($-$$). At Uptown you can find gently used blouses from designer brands. With something for every style persuasion, we have a lot to choose from to gift your fashion forward mom.

7 – Watches ($-$$). What time is it? It’s Mom time, and what better way to tell her that you appreciate all the time and effort that she has given you over the years than giving her a watch?

8 – Donate in Her Name ($ varies). Stevie Wonder once said, “Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness.” Show Mom that she inspired you and you are paying her love forward. If your mom doesn’t have a favorite charity, visit our charity website to learn more about our charity partner buildOn.

9 – Belts ($-$$). Belts are the perfect statement piece to get Mom for Mother’s Day to take her outfits to the next level.

Earth Day Sale

| April 18, 2018

Earth Day Webpage Header RSVP

We’re celebrating Earth Day on April 21st and you’re invited!

At Uptown Cheapskate, we have a passion for sustainable fashion. We are dedicated to reducing the impact of the fashion industry on the planet by being green 365 days per year. When you support resale, you’re not just being good on your wallet – you’re giving back to the environment and contributing to an economy that is sustainable and green.

To celebrate Earth Day, we want to thank you for your continued support of our sustainability efforts. Visit any of our Uptown Cheapskate locations on April 21st for 25% off our huge selection of gently-used apparel and shoes.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American throws away about 70 pounds of clothing each year. Where do those old threads go? Straight to landfills, to sit for decades. Nearly 95% of all of the clothing, shoes, and linens thrown away could have been recycled or reused.

When you buy and sell to Uptown, you are maximizing the value of these previously loved items by giving them a second life. By recycling your clothes, you can feel good about helping the environment, keeping your dollars local, and donating to charity. In 2017 Uptown:

– Kept 3.2 million items from landfills by recycling

– Donated millions of clothing items to approximately 50 charities nationwide

– Built 9 schools in third-world countries

– Paid out $11 million to local communities

Selling to Uptown is not the only way you can do your part to help heal the earth. Each time you buy a recycled clothing item at Uptown, that’s one less shirt that you might buy new, meaning you’re reducing the demand for the production of new clothes. This not only saves precious resources every year, but it continues to support getting the latest trends in fashion in ways that are safe, sustainable, and ethical. If a clothing item is used for an additional nine months, we reduce that item’s carbon, water, and waste impact by 20-30 percent. At Uptown we are committed to helping keep you fashionable while making the planet a better place.
Click here to find an Uptown near you. Our sister store, Kid to Kid, is celebrating Earth Day too!

Peace, love, and recycle,
Uptown Cheapskate
