Are you a big fan of concerts? Do you often pay the outrageous prices they charge for tee-shirts at the concerts? If so, you likely wear the tee-shirts until they are at least good and faded. If the bands become unpopular, you might stop wearing the old concert tee-shirts much sooner. Still, though, the old concert tee-shirts take up space in your closet or clothes drawer by just sitting there. If you can’t bring yourself to throw out your old concert tee-shirts, you can recycle them. Here is how to recycle your old concert tee-shirts:
Sell them on eBay. It’s doubtful that it would be worth your time to sell one old concert tee-shirt on eBay, but it would likely be profitable to sell your old concert tee-shirts in a bundle. People of all ages enjoy well-worn tee-shirts, especially when the tee-shirts tout the names/faces of their favorite bands, so bundle up all your old concert tee-shirts and sell them on eBay for one price.
Put them in a garage sale. If you’re not an eBay seller, try selling these old tee-shirts in a garage sale. You’ll likely be able to get fifty cents to a dollar for each old concert tee-shirt, and you’ll find that the change will quickly add up to dollars in your pocket. Too, you’ll have extra closet/drawer space after you get rid of your old concert tee-shirts.
Donate them to a blue-collar worker. If you don’t have time to sell your old concert tee-shirts on eBay or in a garage sale, donate them to your favorite blue-collar worker. Factory workers and field workers enjoy wearing such comfortable clothing, so this will surely please and save your favorite blue collar worker money on his/her working wardrobe.
Offer them to a collector. Don’t discount the idea that a collector could want to buy your old concert tee-shirts. If you have a local radio program (such as Swap Shop or Trading Post), try advertising your bundle of old concert tee-shirts. You can announce a price or ask the interested party to make you an offer. You might be pleasantly surprised at the money you make.
Revive them with a comfortable pair of jeans. If you still cannot bear to part with your old concert tee-shirts, go ahead and keep them. Don’t let them just sit in the closet or in a drawer and rot, though. Pair your old concert tee-shirts up with some fun jeans and some funky boots. You can even cut the arms out and wear them as muscle shirts.
*Remember, you bought your old concert tee-shirts because they tout the bands you like, so enjoy the old concert tee-shirts, rather than let them go to waste.
