When one door shuts, another opens. A farewell letter from our Owner:


The past year has been a truly eye-opening and challenging one for me. For some context, I became the owner of Flipside in 2015 with zero business experience. I was a junior at the University of Oregon studying business. The previous owner reached out to me (I was an employee at Flipside) and asked me if I was interested in buying her shop! Long story short, I began my journey to live my dream as a small business owner. I have made many mistakes but through it all, my business has bloomed into a thriving place where my customers can find hidden gems at a great price. The pandemic brought new challenges to Flipside but with hard work, I was able to keep my shop running. One year later, it turns out that I've made the right moves. My business has grown so much and has required constant innovation. 


Last year I was offered a part time position at the church that I grew up at. I've fallen in love with the work that I do for my church and can see myself being there full time. On the other hand, it's made my work at Flipside more difficult to be passionate and I find myself gravitating towards the work that is currently fulfilling me. I've decided that I'm going to take another risk and sell Flipside to someone who has the passion that is fading in me. I know it's kinda cheesy but I see my business like a plant. I bought a plant that wasn't thriving and nursed it back to health but see, it's thriving so well that it's time for it to be repotted into a bigger pot to keep growing. I do not see myself "repotting" and investing more of my energy into something I no longer love. 


The part that hurts me the most is not being able to see those customers that I've grown very close to. It will be hard but I know that my customers have the biggest hearts and want to see me-personally happy and thriving. My hard work and constant dedication has truly payed off.


Please stop by and share your favorite moment or piece of clothing you've come across at Flipside! I appreciate the constant support and hope to find the right person who will take Flipside to the next level!


With much love and peace, Whitney

Well, I guess we can't say we haven't been here before. We are doing our part by enforcing stricter guidelines to keep everyone safe. Here are some changes you might experience next time you come in: 

  • Our shop capacity is 3 customers and 1 employee
  • Our dressing rooms are closed 
  • Shop hours have shortened. We close at 5pm everyday and buying will end at 4pm.

Our buying policy will remain the same:

1 customer can bring in 20 items person per day in a sanitized bag or container.


If you have any questions, please call the shop. We can do this folks! Let's stop the spread together and shop local this holiday season.

We hear you and value your concerns. This year has been extremely taxing and we decided to be open 5 days a week (instead of 7) until further notice. We know that not everyone will be able to come in and shop during our new hours but we value your business. I plan to offer private shopping appointments to those who really want to come in and shop! More info on that will be provided in the next couple weeks. Please read the next paragraph as I explain this change. 


I have been working extremely hard for the past five years and have been burnt out many times. I feel the right to say that I need a break to focus on myself. Being front and center everyday and juggling everything that needs to happen behind the scenes is the role every business owner takes. It's not always fun or rewarding but it's something that brings me joy and comes naturally to me. I'm afraid I don't have the bandwidth to work like I did in the beginning. My priorities 5 years ago (when I first started working as the Owner) are different now. I don't like to share my personal life to people I don't know and I hope you can understand and respect that. "Sharing every detail of your personal life" wasn't in the job description. Moving forward, being open during this pandemic has been an eye-opening blessing. I plan to continue taking two days off to focus on my physical and mental health. Thank you for supporting my little business and from the bottom of my heart, your support makes my gloomy days bright. 



  • Sunday:       CLOSED
  • Monday:   11am-5:30pm
  • Tuesday:   11am-5:30pm
  • Wednesday:      CLOSED
  • Thursday:   11am-5:30pm
  • Friday:     11am-5:30pm
  • Saturday:      Noon-5pm 


Thank you for your understanding, support, respect, and love.

Apr. 28th, 2020



Sadly, we're still closed. There is no buying or in-shop appointments happening at this time. Since our shop is little, it's been difficult to come up with a social distanting policy to keep everyone safe. Ultimately, we've decided to stay closed until Gov. Brown deems it safe. Here are some ways you can support our small business:


Thank you

Flipside Management  

Mar. 28th, 2020



Hey everyone! It's almost been a week since Gov. Brown issued a stay at home policy and we wanted to update you. We have been closed since Monday and will remain closed until further notice. You can shop our inventory on Facebook or Instagram stories. We are offering free delivery, curbside pick-up, and shipping for items you like. We will be updating our website daily on hours where we will be at the shop. 


Thank you

Flipside Management 

Mar. 17th, 2020



March has presented some curveballs and we've decided to cut back on some hours during the Covid-19 debacle. We want to try & stay open until we're told it's no longer safe because of the size of our shop. When the shop gets busy, there's usually about 5-8 people in here at once. The shop is constantly being disinfected too! Listed below are the updated hours & if anything changes we will be sure to let you know!



Monday-Thursday: NOON-5PM

Friday & Saturday: NOON-6PM

Sunday: NOON-5PM


Make sure to tell your friends about these hour changes! Stay safe and thank you for supporting small!


Much love & health,

Hey pretty people! We've had a ton of questions about what we're currently buying and we thought of a neat idea what would help everyone: SEASONAL BUYING TIMELINE!












Since our shop is on the petite side, we are unable to buy for all seasons. If you're unsure of what we mean exactly, feel free to give the shop a call. We would be more than happy to assist you! Hopefully this helps you next time you clean out your closet!

Why does it feel like everyone jumped forward into December and skipped November?? We love Christmas but we also love love love Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to reflect back on the year and remember the things that makes us feel grateful. One thing we're extremely grateful for are the killer deals we can score on Black Friday, but did you know that the following Saturday is actually Small Business Saturday? Shopping small and choosing us makes us feel a whole lot of gratitude. Down below we'll show you a couple of lists, one will be why shopping small makes such a huge difference and the 2nd one will be a list of our favorite small business that you should visit before the year ends!


Reasons why shopping small is awesome:

  • Helping drive local economy
  • Supporting real community members by supporting their business
  • Most small business offer unique or hand-crafted items
  • Money gets poured back into small businesses to they can grow
  • Boo to corporations who only care about $$ & not their customers

Our favorite small businesses:

  • COFFEE/FLORAL: Crema & Bloom 
  • BEER/BAR FOOD: Hayden Bridge Taphouse
  •  FAVORITE THAI: Mali Thai Cuisine
  • FAVORITE VINTAGE THRIFT: The Mercantile/ Vintage Mall

Just kidding ;) We are always available to serve you by being open 7 days a week! Did you know that we actually buy everyday too? Yup, we offer you 33% cash or 50% trade everyday until 1 hour before closing! Sometimes our stock can get pretty full and we take 3-4 days a year where we don't buy for a day. We've decided that tomorrow is that day. We'll be open Sunday, May 5th from 12pm-5pm w/ no buying. 


Since we're taking the day to overlook our inventory to determine exactly what we need, we want to give you a little deal! DOUBLE STAMPS ALL DAY SUNDAY! Hopefully y'all visit us tomorrow & say hi to our new employee Kaitlyn! She's super bubbly, sweet, and actually loves iced chai drinks ;)

Who else is bundled up in a million layers? We are! December is one of our favorite months because of the lights, cozy layers, warm drinks, & good company. This month also represents the end of another year & the beginning of a new one. With all new beginnings, have you considered cleaning out your closet? We buy gently used women's & junior's clothing shoes and accessories. You will recieve 30-35% cash or 40-55% in-store credit to spend in our shop! We base our decisions mainly on style (current, classic, comfortable), condition (like new or gently used), and item resellability (item's ability to resell in our shop). Did you know that we also buy 7 days/week? Our buying hours always ends 1 hour before closing. 


LET'S TALK ABOUTS GIFTS, BABY! This year we have a few options for fast ( & affordable) gifts! Currently available in the shop are magnets & ornaments that are handcrafted in Portland! We also have cresent moon rings that are made by hand in Dallas, TX! So exciting right? If you haven't been in the shop recently, you have to swing by & check them out before theyre all sold! Or if you've never been into the shop, this would be a great excuse to visit us! We love supporting small businesses & hope you do too! 


December is filled with dinners & parties (at least for us) & we'll have to close up shop early on Friday the 14th at 5pm. We're still figuring out our Christmas schedule but please plan on the shop being closed on the 23rd-25th & the 1st. Thank you so much for taking the time to read our blog and if you have any questions please feel free to give us a call!


Happy Holidays , Merry Christmas, & Happy Hanukkah!

2019 PLANS


2019 is still 109 days away but hey, we like to plan things ahead. One of our plans is that we'll be hiring 1-3 people throughout the year. Our owner will be taking applications and resumes until maybe March of next year and start conducting interviews next month! If you know someone who's interested or you're interested hop on our "EMPLOYMENT' page and read our little list of criteria, then copy & paste the link! Another huge thing happening next year is that WE'RE TURNING 10 YEARS OLD! It's so crazy how fast time goes by cause it honestly feels like it was 2009 a couple years ago..... We're thinking about some fun ways to show our appreciation to our customers throughout the year and maybe throwing an anniversary party! Either way whatever happens, we're more than ready to welcome the new year and share it with you! 


Much love,

Hey everyone! We are gearing up for Fall and all the cute fashion that comes with falling leaves & pumpkin spice lattes. Speaking of Fall, we are now currently buying Fall items such as:

  1. Sweaters
  2. Boots
  3. Long Sleeve Blouses
  4. Long Sleeve Dresses
  5. Sneakers
  6. Light Jackets
  7. Jeans
  8. Rain Jackets + boots

We'll be buying these items until April of next year (gotta love Oregon weather)! Buying for Winter won't start until October, so mark your calenders. Another update and a pretty important one is that we have decided to make our Summer Hours PERMANENT! Which will be: 



Friday & Saturday:




We're still buying 7 days a week & buying ends 1 hour before closing. Our decision stems from the lack of foot traffic right at the end of the day. We want to take this opportunity to sincerly apologize for any inconviences this will cause or have caused. If you have any comments or questions, please email us because your voice and opinion matters to us. 


Last but not least, we're adding Happy Hour deals EVERYDAY during the last week of every month! The only way you can cash in on the deals is by watching our Story on Facebook & Instagram! Woo-hoo! BTW, Happy new school year! We wish all the students luck, motivation, and happiness this school year! Oh and God bless all the teachers! We wish you patience and determination to help shape the future minds of tomorrow! 


Much love,

If you didn't already know, we're super active on our social media accounts. Sometimes we post the cutest outfits or a pair of shoes you've been eye-ing at the mall. We have a hold policy specifically for social media. Trust me, you'll want to know how the hold policy works cause the stuff we post is crazy good. ;) 



  1. Comment "HOLD (and mention what you want on hold)" & then proceed to ask for sizes and prices.
  2. Then send us a direct message asking to hold.
  3. MOST IMPORTANT STEP: You've only secured the hold once we've replied to you!
  4. If we don't reply right away, give us a call! (better safe than sorry!)
  5. Cool huh! Sometimes you're not the only one who wants the same thing. We count direct messages and comments as holds and we verify the time your request was made, then determine where you are on our waiting list.

Happy shopping!


Much love,


Flipside Management

We decided to close an hour early for summer this year! Don't worry, it's only Monday-Thursday! The weekends will remain the same! 


The reason why we decided to close up at 6 instead of 7 is because we've noticed very slow foot traffic at the end of the day (during weekdays). We will continue to buy clothes 7 days a week and buying ends 1 hour before we close everyday! 


Thank you for dropping by our blog <3


Much love,

We are currently looking for and buying gently used spring + summer clothes, shoes, and accessories. Here's a list of trendy things we're looking for:

  1. mules
  2. slide sandals
  3. sneakers
  4. mini purses
  5. fanny packs
  6. crop tops
  7. bralettes
  8. casual dresses
  9. high waisted denim
  10. boyfriend/ straight denim
  11. flowy tops
  12. denim mini skirts
  13. denim jackets
  14. kimonos + dusters
  15. shorts (workout/denim/fabric)

 Our mission is to buy current styles and trends. We want to offer a quality selection of inventory, ranging from sizes XXS-4X. Next time you want to sell, give us a call to see what we're specifically looking for! We base our buying decision on style (contemporary & classic styles), condition (like-new or gently used), and item sellability (how well the item could sell for us). We also take our current inventory into consideration when we are buying. 


On another note, last summer we kept our normal shop schedule for the season. In the past, we would stay open longer to accommodate customers. This summer we decided to close up early during the weekdays this summer. It was nice to be open later but we noticed very little traffic the last two hours of the day. This summer our new schedule will be: Monday-Thursday: 11am-6pm (buying ends @ 5pm). Friday, Saturday, and Sunday's schedule will remain the same (with buying ending an hour before closing). If this is confusing, we'll have our Google listing updated with all this information (so Google us!). We decided to start this hour change: June 1st-TBA. 


We're ready to work on our tan + eat all the watermelon in sight <3

Happy Friday Jr.! We are going to be closing early for Valentine's day and the day before. We will be buying both days and maybe having a special or two on the 14th! Make sure you check out our Twitter (@FSAPPEX) and our Insta-Story (@flipsideapparelexchange) for the specials! 


We decided to close early the day before and Valentine's day for a religious holiday. Thank you for understanding and we apologize in advance for any inconveniences. 


We truly do appreciate and love every customer! Also, we hope your days are filled with love, joy, and happiness (not only on this ridiculous holiday).

When we clean out our closet, sometimes we're shocked at what we find hiding in the very back. Oh, we're not the only ones? When you're cleaning out your closet, keep in mind what has resale value and what doesn't. If you would NEVER wear it again, then chances are no one will. We're talking about those Sex in the City style skirts and dress and your old Sketcher's exercise tennis shoes. Yes, even the platform plastic sandals you wore once during Spring Break.


What we look for are styles that you wore once and either don't fit right or you've moved on to the next best thing. Style, condition, and the resale value are the most important things we take into consideration when we're looking through your pre-loved wardrobe. Brands are often a big factor when we're looking through things but it's not the most important! We want to offer our customers a quality selection of used clothes, shoes, and accessories. 


Remember that we're humans too. If you don't want to look through a stranger's old pile of socks and undergarments then what makes you think we would enjoy it? Here's a quick list of things we have seen in the past and don't want to see again: underwear, pajamas, socks, clothes that are dirty, jeans with "lady time" accidents, clothes that are COVERED in pet hair, and clothes that have bugs and/or spiders. If you don't want to donate clothes that have holes or stains, we'll be more than happy to find resources in the area where you can properly dispose of them without throwing them in the trash. 


Anyways, long story short....1). Keep in mind what you're bringing in to sell 2). Selling your clothes helps the environment by keeping out millions of pounds of textiles out of landfills 3). Last but not least, you're helping and supporting a small business (thank you!) 


Much love,

Flipside Management

It's that time of year again where we switch back to our regular shop hours (insert excited emoji here). So, our normal (updated) hours are Monday-Saturday 11am-7pm and Sunday noon-5pm. Our buying hours are changing too! For the past year we decided to keep Sundays chill for us and not buy inventory that day but guess what? Our new buying hours are Monday-Saturday 11am-6pm and SUNDAY noon-4pm!!


Another thing we wanted to remind you of was that we close up the shop for many reasons (remodel projects, sick days, snow days, religious days, holidays etc.) and is the best way to know if we're going to be open on a specific day is to Google us! We constantly keep our Google listing up-to-date with ANY schedule changes so that's the best way to stay informed! Our Yelp page is another great way to stay informed with any specials or deals we are having. Our specialty is our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and we use those to showcase what we offer in the shop. Feel free to check out our pages! 


We're excited to be buying on Sundays again and we hope to see you and a friend soon! We strongly encourage you to send us an email with your thoughts and comments! We listen! CS.FSAPPEX@GMAIL.COM

TUG OF WAR (send help)


We've been open since 2009, which means we've seen all the trends since then make their way to us. It has always been a challenge keeping our inventory fresh because we cannot control what we receive. Also, y'all want a good deal and we're all about that. The reason why we titled this blog post Tug of war, was because we need your help! When we're looking through items we think about what you guys want (obviously). We want to hear from you! Would you prefer classic, everyday items or unique versions of those everyday items? We offer a mix of both like these Converse sneakers! Helping our customers develop their style and keeping it is very important to us! If you've ever wanted to branch out and try something new but don't know how to incorporate into your everyday wardrobe- ASK US! We're more than happy to help you!  


Much love,

This month we wanted to try something new (literally new). We are starting to slowly integrate hand-crafted goods built and/or designed here in the Pacific Northwest. Our guinea pig collaboration was the Oregon Girl mugs featured in the picture. These mugs are designed by Myranda Sue in Portland! You can buy one on her Etsy in the link below. So far, we decided to have 2 vendors at one time (due to space). If you or anyone you know makes unique hand-crafted goods that fits our style PLEASE contact us.We're interested in collaborating with people who make cute and trendy goods! We are living our dream and want to help out fellow entrepreneurs and business owners.

Have you been cut in line or shoved while shopping? Well, none of that nonsense is tolerated here at Flipside. We're firm believers in treating people how you want to be treated. Understandably, the holidays can come with stress. Stress over family, presents, money, and even little things (like being cut in line). Our objective this holiday season is to bring cheer into your shopping. Whether you're running around town or casually strolling by, we hope that you find that little special treasure that will make you smile. By the way, who else is enjoying this glorious sunshine?


Much love,

Flipside Apparel Exchange is a Springfield original and we're making sure our community stays in style. Established in 2009, we're one of the oldest locally owned resale apparel shops in town. We offer a unique collection of gently used women's clothing, shoes, and accessories; ranging from vintage to trendy styles. 


We started off as a mother/ daughter duo with a mission to provide a safe place for young girls to find cute styles without cracking open the piggy bank. As time went on, the daughter graduated from the University of Oregon, got married and now travels the world pursuing her dream. In 2014, the mother decided it was time to start a new chapter in life and decided to sell Flipside. She wanted to keep her hard work alive by selling her business to someone who would grow with the business. At that time, she decided to reach out to her employees and long behold, one of them was crazy enough to adopt her business. 


In 2015, our current owner Whitney bought the business and vowed to nurture and grow the business as her own without forgetting the hard work the mother and daughter put into the shop. Whitney's always loved fashion and can't remember a time where she wasn't day-dreaming about owning her own business. After working at Flipside for a year, she was offered the opportunity of a lifetime. After cashing in all her pennies, she bought the shop from the mother and daughter. Now she's determined to spruce it up and dreams of another location. Whitney is always on hand to help you choose the perfect look and she aims to provide a shopping experience that's exclusive and personalized while maintaining all the fun in thrifting! Trends, like personal style, are ever-evolving and our mission is to make sure our customers maintain a wardrobe that speaks true to who they are. Come see Whitney and share her love of style!


Much love,
