WE ARE VERY PROUD TO BE SUPPORTING ACTION FOR CHILDREN
Every child should grow up safe and happy. That’s why they provide support to help them thrive - and step in to help when times get tough.
This means protecting the vulnerable from neglect and abuse. It means supporting young people who are homeless and those who care for others. It’s finding safe and loving homes, and giving children a voice by campaigning for something better.
It also means being there when the unexpected happens.
All sellers agree to contribute a minimum of 10% of the selling price to charity. Of course they can opt to contribute more! Action For Children is our suggested charity, but sellers can choose any charity of their choice.

BUYING & SELLING PRELOVED FABULOUS ITEMS WITH KINDNESS
All about us
Katie's Kind Closet is a brand new online store offering customers a place to find pre-owned designer, unique and timeless fashion pieces for both woman and children. Founded by Katie Shelton-Innes during 'lockdown' in 2020, her frustration at selling her designer items and paying typically 30-50% + VAT in commission to other agencies and the guilt that she should really be giving these to the charity shops, led her to set up her own online and social media shop, showcasing new pieces every week day on Instagram. Commission rates for the full service are low and most importantly the seller commits a minimum donation of 10% of the sale price to charity on every transaction.
Katie lives between London and her coastal home in Norfolk with her husband James, daughter Harriet and three pugs, Penelope, Poppie and Percy.
We are also soon to launch Katie's Kind Closet Kids!
We want your fabulous items!
Designer /High Street items - new to gently worn condition
Vintage - good condition, preferably 'in fashion' e.g we are currently obsessed with Laura Ashley 1970's prairie skirts/dresses!
Unique pieces - they don't have to be designer, maybe you bought an amazing dress in that boutique in New York or a kaftan in that beach shop in Ibiza....., or maybe a really unique/ sold out high street item.
We want a good mix of items and price ranges.
Underwear - new only please.
Swimwear - new or excellent condition only.
Shoes, Accessories & Homeware
We love shoes!!!
Flats, heels, wedges, sandals, trainers etc we love them all. Designer or unique and in good condition please (if in doubt send us an image first).
We also love all types of bags! All conditions welcome, but will be reflected in the price. If they require addition preparation (cleaning insides etc) a higher commission charge may apply.
We adore accessories - sunglasses, scarves, hats, headbands/alicebands, jewellery (all earrings will be hygienically cleaned by us).
We will also look at homeware - designer cushions, throws, unused candles, coffee table books and other smaller pieces (Missoni, Hermes, Fornasetti, Eicholtz, Jo Malone, Diptique etc) - we are open to your suggestions!
Children's clothes are just the best! We will look at all baby, children's and teen wear both girls and boys. Shoes, accessories also welcome!
We love everything but we have immediate demand for Bonpoint, La Coquetta, Pepa & Co, Amaia, Gucci, D&G, Olivier, Moncler, Rachel Riley, Jacadi, Trotters.....
We are also exploring the option of a section to sell your preloved prams, bikes, trikes, 'designer toys' and furniture, so please get in touch if you'd like to explore further.
Terms and conditions
RETURNS: All sales are final and no returns accepted unless the item has not been described/photographed properly. If this is the case you will have 7 days to contact us.
Please, please read the full description and see all images for full details which will show any imperfections, wear and tear and missing items (buttons etc). If the item has been described correctly no returns will be accepted.
We strive to hunt for amazing quality vintage items. Our items are in good condition unless otherwise stated, but please keep in mind that a "used" vintage item in good/excellent condition should not be considered brand new, (unless stated) and may have minor flaws. Any that are predominantly noticeable will be shown and described in the item description.
We make every attempt to accurately describe a vintage item (era) but we cannot guarantee the exact age, however we try our best!
We also list vintage items in modern day sizing. So an item on the label may say size 12, but for example it could be a modern day UK6, so please check the measurements.
