File this brand under Not My Style But I’ll Gladly Take Your Money If It’s Your Style.
I know that I passed up several pieces of Sky clothing in my first year of thrifting for profit. To me, they looked like cheaply made clothes for people who stay up way later at night than I do. (I am very much a grandma at heart though, so take that last statement with a grain of salt.) They’re usually solid (sometimes patterned) stretchy tops or dresses, often with dramatic embellishments at the bust to show off one’s–ahem–best assets.
I still stand by the brand not being to my taste, but I was way off on the price point of these pieces. Clicking around on the website (don’t click if you have delicate sensibilities… or any sensibilities, really) you’ll see tops in the $90 to nearly $300 range, and dresses up to the mid $400s. And, honestly, upon closer inspection, they’re pretty well made. (The consignment store that I’m doing photography for has sold several of these pieces, so I’ve come into contact with them quite a bit over the last few weeks.)
Recently completed listings for pre-owned Sky clothing show that even used items from this label can bring in a lot of money:
I just listed my first thrifted Sky top this morning for $35. I’m hoping for a quick flip on this one!
Important tip: The labels just say “Sky” but it seems like they’re almost always listed on eBay as “Sky Brand” so, I’d start your listing titles for these items with “Sky Brand.”
Here’s a picture of the label you’ll want to keep an eye out for when you’re out thrifting:
Have any of you sold Sky clothing before? Do you tend to thrift items you’d wear yourself, or do you branch out more?
