So I’ve seen a lot of Instagram Advertising for Goodfair and I thought I’d like to try it out. I am an avid lover of secondhand and thrift clothing and if I don’t have to do the work and someone could curate for me well I want to support that.
Fast fashion has created a demand for low prices which has forced production to be farmed out to sweatshops. At Goodfair we don’t make anything new – cutting down on the need for low wage factories across the globe.Taken from Goodfair.com
Goodfair mostly offers bundles ranging from prices of $10-$85. I went ahead on got the Green Heart bundle which is $80 but with a coupon code I ended up paying around $56. This bundle includes 2 flannels, 1 Denim shirt, 1 sweatshirt, 3 tees, 3 blank tees, and 1 denim jacket.
I was really excited for the denim jacket and the sweatshirt. When you order you get the opportunity to leave a comment in where you can tell them your favorite colors to wear and other things. I told them I love to wear mustard Yellow and Forest green. I also asked if they could try to make my jacket oversized if possible.
It didn’t take very long to ship and I recieved the package within a week. The anticipation of getting the package was immediately crushed when I opened it and took out the first item.
Everything was sort of just stuffed in a box. I knew they wanted to use the smallest box possible, but you could at least try to fold it well. Everything was wrinkled, felt damp and smelled moldy. None of the shirts looked appealing and as you can see none of the shirts are any of the colors that I said I liked to wear.
One of the shirts actually had a stain on it! I’m all for second hand clothes but I would never sell something that has a stain on it, especially for the price I paid. Most of it looked like it came out of the bins from goodwill. The denim jacket was by far the worst. It was the smallest of the bunch (which makes me think they don’t follow their own size guide) and I realized it was a juniors jacket I just put everything in a bag and just let the disappointment set in my chest.
I may keep the sweatshirt but it’s up in the air. It depends on how it comes out after I clean it. Everything else is just heading straight back to the donation. This makes me sad because I essentially paid $56 for a sweatshirt I may not even keep.
I almost thought to return the items, but their return system is I pay a small price and they send me another bundle. I really don’t want to spend more money on a bundle that will most likely just make me even more disappointed.
I never try to dissuade people from trying out a company, and I typically try to find one good thing to include in my reviews but… I cannot genuinely support this company.
Just stay away. Just stay far away.
