If you've ever found a brand new cashmere coat for $7 or unearthed a pair of Manolo's lying in a heap of crazy at your local thrift store, then you know the thrill and amazing bargains that are possible when shopping for second hand clothes.

It's funny that we often forget that when fantasizing about selling OUR clothes and raking in big bucks.

The math doesn't add up but we remain ever hopeful and a bit delusional about the potential value hanging in our closets.

The world of clothing swap and resale websites is growing every day but note: these sites are gathering a wealth of data on the life spans of different designers which means they are also gathering data on you and your shopping habits.

So don't shy away from them, just visit them with eyes wide open and a cautious mouse.

Here is a list of some of the most popular and successful sites for selling designer and other quality clothing:
