LeapCloset is a Site to buy and sell gently used women’s and kids’ clothing, shoes and fashion accessories.
Listing your items on LeapCloset is absolutely free! It is an opportunity to have a large wardrobe in a small closet. Join the movement for a journey full of discoveries!
By accessories we mean handbags, women’s beauty items, jewelry, belts, gloves, scarves, shawls, watches, hats, caps, sunglasses, hair accessories, costumes, special outfits, backpacks, baby care items, and kids’ small toys and games. The accessories shall meet the package size options offered by LeapCloset.
Please refrain from listing items that do not fall into these categories, as they clutter the marketplace and make shopping for fashion more difficult and less enjoyable for others.
We want to ensure that LeapCloset remains a friendly, enjoyable and safe place, so we ask all our users to comply with LeapCloset “Catalog Rules” (“Rules”) for the items listed and their descriptions, narrative about the users’ style profile, and communications derived from a sale process.
The Catalog Rules are part of our “Terms and Conditions of use”, and we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change or modify portions of these “Terms” at any time without further notice. You should periodically visit this page to review the current Terms, so you are aware of any revision to which you are bound. If we do this, we will post the changes to these Terms on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. We will also notify you, either through the “Services” user interface, in an email notification or through other reasonable means. Any such changes will become effective for existing users no earlier than ten (10) days after they are posted, except that changes addressing new functions of the Services or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. Your continued use of the Services after the date any such changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms. If you do not agree to abide by these or any future Terms, do not use or access (or continue to use or access) the Services.
