We’re flipping the switch this Black Friday. To encourage cleanout over consumption, we’re waiving ALL seller fees on new items listed from Friday, Nov 25 through Sunday, Nov 27.
Over 85% of textiles produced end up in landfills. In America alone, that amounts to about 81 lbs of clothing per person, yearly. With Reverse Black Friday, we’ve envisioned a fun way to keep fashion out of landfills and help folks earn extra money for the holidays.
This is the perfect time to do something about that pile of clothes you don’t wear anymore… the ones that you’ve been meaning to do something about for months. List any item on Curtsy from Friday, Nov 25 through Sunday, Nov 27 with no seller fees.
Shopping resale and selling your clothes online shouldn’t be hard. Try Ons create a unique way for sellers to show their clothes in action, letting buyers easily see all the details of the item.
We’re launching Try Ons because we believe it’s a faster way to post items, and, they’ll sell sooner because buyers can easily see the material and fit of items.
How Do Try Ons Work?
When you post your item, you’ll see a new Try On option to add a video to your listing, alongside the current photos option. You can list an item with photos, a Try On video, or you can add both!
The best way to show your item is to model it so buyers can see how the item fits. You can also show the item on a hanger, or a simple surface, if you don’t want to model it. This works well for things like sneakers, accessories, or any items that no longer fit!
Pro tips for taking videos
Make sure the item is in full view
Good lighting is key so you can see the item clearly
Include a clip showing any damage or flaws
Zoom in on the item to show details and multiple angles
Here’s what our users are saying
We’re so excited to share this feature and hope you have as much fun using it as we did creating it. If you’d like more info, watch our video or send us a message in the app.
We know the Try On feature may not be perfect from day one, so we’d love to hear from you on how we can continue to improve it ([email protected]).
At Curtsy, we’ve re-imagined how you shop for and sell your clothes. We’re working everyday to use our platform to keep fashion out of landfills and give apparel a second life. We’re making it easy for you to buy and sell your clothes, shoes, and accessories online and through our app.
At Curtsy we value integrity, boldness, and community. We’re dreamers, thinkers, doers, and achievers. We meld old-school tradition with new-school disruption. We want to be THE go-to for sustainable fashion, and it takes bold action, challenging the status quo, and delivering a wow customer experience.
So far we’ve kept over two million items out of landfills and helped our community earn over $30M through giving their clothes a second life. Together we work hard, we dream big, and we look great doing it.
We started Curtsy in the Tri Delt house Ole Miss. Today we’re a small but mighty team with an office in downtown San Francisco. We’re still a small startup and are looking for people just as fun and lively to join the team! Read on for more deets! 👇🏼
✨ About Campus Teams
We’re looking for two talented marketers at each school to help grow Curtsy and tell our story. As an early member of the team you’ll have extraordinary autonomy and ability to contribute to overall growth and marketing strategy. If you have ambitions to join a fast growing start-up and spread the joy and ease of sustainable fashion, we think you’ll be a great fit.
If you’re passionate, have an entrepreneurial spirit and love making genuine connections: We’ll give you the power and resources to hit the ground running and make an impact on your campus.
💃 What You’ll Do
We want you to help spread the Curtsy love to your friends and campus.
From partnering with local businesses for giveaways to hands-on marketing campaigns and social media, you’ll be involved in everything.
You’ll be working directly with me (a Co Founder here at Curtsy) and another student on your campus. We’ll have bi-weekly calls to brainstorm fun activities and ways to spread Curtsy to your school.
While your main role will be on-campus marketing, we’ll also work closely with you to help us improve the app and brand.
As a valued member of our small team, you’ll get competitive hourly pay* in addition to $100 Curtsy Credit (monthly) AND 15% off everything on Curtsy 🙂
Depending on your preference, this opportunity might be eligible to count for class credit as an unpaid internship.*

To celebrate, we’re giving everyone 20% off their first purchase on the website this week! Promo: WEBSITE
Using Curtsy is now easier than it’s ever been. Without being confined to a 3″ screen, you can browse, shop, and explore with more visibility and ease. You can also use Curtsy in those places you shouldn’t have your phone out… wherever that may be. And now, non iPhone/iOS users now have access use Curtsy for the first time ever.

A thousand pieces from the app, all in one place: The Curtsy Closet.
The first Curtsy Closet opened up in downtown Tuscaloosa two weeks ago. Here are the deets:
The Curtsy Closet is a Pop-Up shop with over a thousand pieces from the app. You can rent in-store or from the app, just like normal.
On the app, you can always see what’s currently available in the store.
What all can I rent in-store?
Everything from tops and bottoms, to cocktail dresses, long formal dresses, rompers, purses, and even shoes. It’s all owned by girls in Tuscaloosa.
“It’s easy and convenient to come in for an event and immediately find a rockin’ dress or outfit.” – Brittany McMahon
Why did you open up the pop-up?
We figured it was time to open an official location after our Campus Director, Olivia Kercher, ended up with 600+ dresses in the guest bedroom of her house. Shout-out to her roommates who let the un-offical Curtsy Closet take over their house.
When is it open?
Where is it?
