The Consignment Shop Part 2:
At the Shop

Last week we talked about getting ready to bring items to a consignment shop. Having completed your preparations, now you’re ready to go to the shop with them.

Arriving at the Shop & How the Process Works

To review, I can’t emphasize enough to make sure items are clean, with no stains (check arm pits and collars), and that pockets are clean of trash or change.

The same goes for any accessories. So, look over your items one more time. Also, remember to bring clothes into the store on hangers or neatly folded—not in a trash bag.

From there, follow these tips:

1. Call the shop before you go. Most places will ask that you make an appointment before bringing the items in. This is a good time to ask about the process, as each consignment boutique may have different rules.

2. Make a note of how long they allow for items to sell at their store and remember when to pick up your unsold items or prepare to have them donated.

3. It’s okay to ask what designers or styles the shop likes to accept before you bring your things in. Each place may have its unique clientele, and some items may be more popular than others.

4. The store is not obligated to take everything you bring in. Nor should you assume what something is worth. There are many reasons why something may be of higher value than something else depending on demand and the area in which it is being sold. A lot goes into the process. The owner will try to be as fair as possible, but the reality is that average, used clothes do not sell for a high price—so it’s important to keep your expectations low.

5. Some stores will give you a discount if you use store credit to purchase other items. Not a bad way to try out new styles!
