About Plato's Closet
We are part of the nation's largest and most successful franchises that buy and sell gently used clothing and accessories for teens and 20somethings. Each Plato’s Closet location is individually owned and operated by business savvy owners. We opened our first location in Houston in 2005 and now have six area locations.

Sell To Us. Make Money.
We make selling your items convenient and fun. We pay cash on the spot. Accepted pieces are purchased immediately, no waiting for your item to sell.
Clothing must be in good condition and in current style. Items must be freshly laundered and folded neatly in boxes or shopping bags.
The price we pay is based on condition, brand, style and demand. Not all items are accepted due to inventory levels, past experience, and condition.
Trade: Remix & Match Your Style
If you are selling to us, we are happy to credit your sale against your same-day purchase. You will save the 8.25% Texas state sales taxon the amount of the applicable credit! We call that a TRADE and you get to pocket an extra savings from the government. Pretty cool, huh?
