30 Years as a Global Leader

Bank & Vogue’s Journey

Our story began over three decades ago and is one of following your passion and beliefs, creating opportunities, and building a great family-based business.

Bank & Vogue was founded in the early 90s by Steven Bethell and Helene Carter-Bethell. They worked out of their basement to provide a service to the Salvation Army. Since then, Bank & Vogue has grown to become a global leader and unique player in the used goods market. We’ve achieved this by combining our incredibly in-depth knowledge and experience in wholesale, retail, design and manufacturing and our creative ideas and solutions to help deal with the overwhelming amount of “stuff” that we all consume.

Our team at Bank & Vogue is committed to our meaningful role in defining, contributing to and building a closed-loop economy.

Cutting-Edge Used Clothing Brokers

On the wholesale side, as a used clothing broker, we look to find new and innovative ways for charities to raise revenue so they can fund important community programs. We work with our customers to find great quality used products and store returns for domestic and international markets. Having worked with charities, collectors, thrift stores, and more in over 27 countries, we partner with our clients to help minimize the impact of used clothing on the environment.

Last year, we moved over 90 million pounds of used goods around the world, saving them from landfills and creating a more positive future for the secondhand industry.
